Automatic license plate recognition system for traffic monitoring
In Ghana, road accidents are primarily caused by road traffic law violations. Technologies, such as Automatic License Plate Recognition(ALPR), have been implemented to help reduce road accidents in other countries. However, they are not utilized in less developed countries like Ghana. In this project, an ALPR is implemented using two approaches: computer vision algorithms and YOLOv4. The computer vision approach obtained a 71% ALPR accuracy at 3 meters distance and 60 degrees inclination between the license plate and camera at 7 pm night time. The YOLOv4 obtained a 99% ALPR accuracy at 6 meters distance and 60 degrees inclination between the license plate at 7 pm night time.The results of testing show that the YOLOv4 approach was more accurate than the one with computer vision.
