ANPR might just be the perfect thing for your to try out! In this video we’ll go through a full blown walkthrough of performing Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) using OpenCV and EasyOCR. We just edge detection and filtering techniques combined with deep learning powered optical character recognition to be able to extract number plate text from images in just 25 minutes.

In this video you’ll learn how to:
0:00​ - Start
5:59​ - Reading and visualising images using OpenCV with Python
7:37​ - Applying color shifts and changes to images (e.g. grayscaling and BGR2RGB)
9:48​ - Detecting contours using OpenCV findCountours
14:32​ - Masking number plates to improve text extraction for OCR
18:40​ - Extracting number plate text using EasyOCR
