The scope of this tool is to implement an image processing-based traffic radar that detects vehicle number plates and subsequently measures the instantaneous vehicle speed. This application of computational photography/image processing was selected in order to develop an open-source and cost-effective alternative to current speeding radar systems that can carry a price tag upwards of $6,500 per unit[1]. As an open-source technique, this will enable local authorities, municipalities, or any individual to implement their own low-cost ($1,700) and convenient traffic monitoring systems with off-the-shelf devices and equipment.

To implement this application, a set of easily accessible and relatively inexpensive… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
