License Recognition and Tracking • Goal • develop a practical solution to extract license plate of moving vehicles so that the license plate of each vehicle passing by can be identified automatically. • Key idea • combine motion tracking with region detection • use application specific knowledge to guide for the target region detection: region shape, ratio of width to height • use knowledge previously discovered to generate a Region of Interest which focuses tracking to relevant areas.
