i need to do horizontal and vertical projection with c# and do binarization but i cant. can you help me ?
to do this three steps
1- binarization
2- horizontal projection
3- vertical projection
please quickly

but i need umage processing code
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 28-Jan-13 16:38pm
Read more thoroughly. However, I'll add some links.

What you need is called OCR, "Optical Character Recognition". Please see:[^].

Unfortunately, I must warn you: I never found any Open-Source OCR solutions which would be perfect, but it could be good enough for just the license plate number. There are few CodeProject solutions I like, but, to best of knowledge, they are all incomplete, would need serious amount of work to make a working application out of them, and they are for .NET, not Java.

Please see these CodeProject articles:

Neural Network OCR[^],
Creating Optical Character Recognition (OCR) applications using Neural Networks[^],
Neural Network Classifier[^],
A C# Project in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Using Chain Code[^],
Unicode Optical Character Recognition[^],
Hebb neural network[^],
Backpropagation Artificial Neural Network in C++[^],
OCR Line Detection[^].

Maybe there are newer projects I'm not familiar with; so it would not hurt if you do your own search in CodeProject and elsewhere. Please, if you find something good, please reply in the comment to this answer.

[EDIT: in response to a follow-up question to Solution 1:]

Right, you might also need some general image processing to be used before OCR. I recommend the open-source library AForge.NET written by Andrew Kirillov, a CodeProject member:[^],[^].

Please see Andrews articles at CodeProject:[^].

Well answered, Sergey :-D
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 28-Jan-13 16:42pm
Thank you, Espen.
OP is missing something; can you see what? :-)
aymandesoky 28-Jan-13 16:40pm
this is the step after i finish this step
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 28-Jan-13 16:41pm
Excuse me..?
aymandesoky 28-Jan-13 16:41pm
the step i shoud do now the image processing
i finsh gray scale and edge detection
and need
binarization and projection
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 28-Jan-13 16:42pm
Please see my updated answer, after [EDIT]. You will find it all.
Espen Harlinn 28-Jan-13 16:48pm
If the code can be used to detect a character, it can certainly be used to detect the rectangle of the plate.

Hard to argue against the unbreakable logic. :-)

You may also try Emgu [^] framework which implements most of the image processing algorithms
Espen Harlinn 28-Jan-13 17:05pm
Cool links, Emgu looks pretty interesting :-D
jibesh 28-Jan-13 19:06pm
True. they have a wide range of ready to use algorithms and its easy to use the framework lib
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 28-Jan-13 17:34pm
Agree, a 5.
jibesh 28-Jan-13 19:06pm
Thanks SA
