Abstract: Traffic control using smart Toll Booth is a solution to many traffic related problems prevailing nowadays. This paper proposes a smart toll booth wherein license plate recognition and image processing are the key phenomenon. An algorithm has been established that extracts the license plate and segmentation of the characters is done. In this we used template matching to recognize the plate. Once the license plate is recognized, the toll pay is deduced from the car ownerís account.
