License plate detection

+ More details


This model detects vehicle license plates images and transcribes them using the TensorFlow Object Detection API. It takes as input license plate images in a PNG or JPG format. The model produces json file as output.

Analytics status

  • Beta

Business benefit

This model can be used to identify vehicles for transportation planning and for traffic enforcement.

Data inputs (mandatory)

▪ Images (1Mo max, .jpg .png)

Data Output

▪ Text file containing the detected license plate number (1Mo max, text file)

Technical description

53.6% Precision and 97.5% Recall

The dataset used to train this model is not publicly available. This model uses precision and recall as its metrics. These are commonly used metrics in classification. This model achieves a recall of 97.52%, and precision of 53.64%. In practical terms this means that the model will most likely identify a license plate if it is present in an image but will also report about twice as many license plates as are truly present in a dataset.

A higher precision score indicates that the majority of labels predicted by the model for different classes are accurate.

A higher recall score indicates that the model finds and predicts correct labels for the majority of the classes it is supposed to find.

The only training information available about this model at its source repository is that the model was based upon the ResNet architecture.

Training dataset details are not publicly available.

Validation dataset details are not publicly available.
