Verilog License Plate Recognition on FPGA

A plate license recognition system is implemented in Matlab and then it is implemented on FPGA Xilinx Spartan-6 using Verilog. Below is the test environment for the system on FPGA.

Verilog code for License Plate Recognition


Image memory: 10 images and convert it into .dat format ( gray data). We use $readmemh(synthesizable) Verilog command to initialize the memory by reading gray data from .dat file. 10 images are converted into Gray format and write to the .dat file by using Matlab.

Plate License Recognition core: Use a switch on FPGA as the “start” signal to trigger this core working and output the plate license numbers.


Monitor on LEDs: When the “done” signal is rising-edge, this block periodically displays plate license numbers.
