This code implemented license plate detection using morphological operators and loosely follows the approach presented by:
1. Farhad Faradji, Amir Hossein Rezaie, Majid Ziaratban ”a morphological based license plate location” ICIP 2007.
2. Farhad Faraji, and Reza Safabakhsh, “novel and fast method for detecting plate location from complicated images based on morphological operations” MVIP 2007.
The steps are as follows:
1. Vertical edge detection
2. Histogram analysis
3. Vertical and Horizontal Dilation
4. Finding Regions in Common
5. Horizontal Dilation
7. Post processing
