With the help of advancements on sensor and data transfer technologies, the usage area of Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) Systems has been enlarged. Both public and private sectors implement ALPR applications for their respective needs. Public safety ALPR applications aim to monitor and control traffic data at both individual and collective levels. For this reason, to build an efficient sensor network number and location of ALPR systems should be determined optimally. This study focuses on determining optimal number and location of ALPR systems in order to maximize network coverage that consists of vehicle coverage and road coverage. The study provides numerical experiments designed for two cities in Turkey. Centralized and decentralized decision-making processes are compared and it is suggested that determining number and location of ALPR systems in a centralized manner would provide better network coverage. The relative importance of vehicle and road coverages that constitutes the network coverage is considered and optimal solutions for number and location of ALPR systems under various configurations are presented.

An algorithm for multiscale license plate detection and rule-based character segmentation
Karalı, Ali Onur; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
License plate recognition (LPR) technology has great importance for the development of Intelligent Transportation Systems by automatically identifying the vehicles using image processing and pattern recognition techniques. Conventional LPR systems consist of license plate detection (LPD), character segmentation (CS) and character recognition (CR) steps. Successful detection of license plate and character locations have vital role for proper LPR. Most LPD and CS techniques in the literature assume fixed dist...

An End-to-end communication architecture for intelligent transportation systems: design, implementation and latency analysis
Bağcı, Çağatay; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Vehicle to anything (V2X) communication is a very significant component of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) applications. This thesis proposes an application layer communication architecture, ITSVeCon for V2X communications which enables communication among the end-hosts which can be vehicle Electronic Control Units (ECU)’s, Road Side Units (RSU)s, computers, smart phones or third party service providers. All these end-hosts are bi-directionally connected to the ITSVeCon Server where this server carries ...

Çetinkaya, Kaan; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are distributed systems with different communicating parties which are vehicles with ITS-supporting On Board Units (OBUs), Road Side Units (RSU) and user mobile devices. These parties collectively run application services that are developed and managed by different application service providers by communicating among each other under certain timing constraints. In the current state of art, hardware, software and communications that are required to implement a given I...
