License plate recognition system is one of the core technologies in intelligent traffic control. In this paper, a new and tunable algorithm which can detect multiple license plates in high resolution applications is proposed. The algorithm to the investigation and identification of the novel Iranian and some European countries plate, characterized by both inclusion of blue area on it and its geometric shape. Obviously, the suggested algorithm contains suitable velocity due to not making use of

So the method recommended here is compatible with model-adaptation, i.e. using the very blue section of the plate. The present method indicates the fact that, if several plates are included in the image, this method can successfully manage to detect them. We evaluated our method on the two Persian single vehicle license plate data set that we obtained 99.33, 99% correct recognition rate respectively. Further we tested our algorithm on the Persian multiple vehicle license plate data set and we achieved 98% accuracy rate. Also we obtained approximately 99% accuracy in character recognition stage.
