License plate recognition is very important in an automobile society. Also in it, since plate detection has big influence on subsequent number recognition, it is very important. However, it is very difficult to do it, because a background and a body color of cars are similar to that of the license plate. In this paper, we propose a new thresholds determination method in the various background by using the real-coded genetic algorithm (RGA). By using RGA, the most likely plate colors are decided under various light conditions. First, the average brightness Y values of images are calculated. Next, relationship between the Y value and the most likely plate color thresholds (upper and lower bounds) are obtained by RGA to estimate thresholds function by using the recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm. Finally, in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed method, we show simulation examples by using real images.
