Vehicle Identification has become very important in today’s scenario. These days’ organizations are more concern about maintaining security. Many vehicles enters in and leave the organization so it is very important to maintain their record. It is a tedious and time consuming task for a human to keep record of all the vehicles. So it arise a need for developing an automatic system which can keep the record of all the vehicle entering and leaving the organization. And also maintain the timings of their arrival and departure. Systems like Automatic Number Plate Recognition are not only useful for this purpose but can be used at traffic signals to identity the vehicles violated traffic rules. There are various other applications that are mentioned in this paper.
