Nowadays, Automatic car license plate number recognition vitally important in our daily
life because number of cars and transportation systems increases every day. It is too
complicated to be fully monitored and managed by humans, for instance traffic light
system, systems for tracking stolen cars, managing car parking. It is a very challenging
difficulty, due to the diversity of plate formats, different scales, rotations and non-uniform
illumination conditions during image acquisition. This paper mainly introduces an
Automatic Number Plate Recognition System (ANPR) in Sulaimani City by using Edge
Detection Techniques for plate localization and characters segmentation. Artificial Neural
Network is used for character recognition.
