Usually video surveillance system is used forrnsecurity purpose as well as monitoring systems. But Detection of moving objectrnis a challenging part of video surveillance. Video surveillance system is usedrnfor Home security, Military applications, Banking /ATM security, Trafficrnmonitoring etc. Now a day’s due to decreasing costs of high quality videornsurveillance systems, human activity detection and tracking has becomernincreasingly in practical. Accordingly, automated systems have been designedrnfor numerous detection tasks, but the task of detecting illegally parkedrnvehicles has been left largely to the human operators of surveillance systems.rnThe detection of Indian vehicles by their number plates is the most interestingrnand challenging research topic from past few years. It is observed that thernnumber plates of vehicles are in different shape and size and also haverndifferent color in various countries. This work proposes a method for therndetection and identification of vehicle number plate that will help in therndetection of number plates of authorized and unauthorized vehicles. Thisrnapproach is simplified to segmented all the letters and numbers used in the numberrnplate by using bounding box method. After segmentation of numbers andrncharacters present on number plate, template matching approach is used tornrecognition of numbers and characters. The concentration is given to locate thernnumber plate region properly to segment all the number and letters to identifyrneach number separately. In the end the extracted information is mailed to thernresponsible authorities for further verification.
