Automatic License Plate Recognition: Challenges and Solutions

Wednesday, October 21st, 08:30 AM — 10:00 AM (GMT-3)

This presentation will be given in Portuguese.


Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) is a crucial task for several applications related to Intelligent Transportation Systems, from access control to large-scale traffic monitoring. Despite the existence of a large number of academic and commercial solutions, they typically focus on a specific scenario (e.g., toll control) or a single license plate (LP) region/layout (e.g., Brazilian, Chinese, etc.). This talk will discuss challenges for developing ALPR systems “in-the-wild”, as well as existing and potential solutions.


Cláudio Rosito Jung received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Applied Mathematics, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Sciences, from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil, in 1993,1995 and 2002, respectively. He is currently a faculty member at UFRGS in the Computer Science department, and was a visiting faculty at the University of Pennsylvania from july 2015 to july 2016. His research interests include several aspects in image processing, computer vision and pattern recognition, such as medical imaging, multiscale image analysis, intelligent vehicles, multimedia applications, human motion synthesis and analysis, audiovisual signal processing and stereo/multiview matching.
