A real-time license plate identification system with Raspberry Pi #PiDay @Raspberry_Pi
The Real-Time License Plate Identification System project implements a license plate identification system. On resource-constrained systems, running inferences may prove to be too computationally expensive. One solution is to run the ML in the cloud and have the local (embedded) system act as a client of these services.
The Python software can run on various systems. Below is one where the image capture is via a Raspberry Pi 3/3B+/4 and a PC working together (GitHub here).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
