South African automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system using artificial neural network. The system of recognition contains of three main major parts- number plate detection, plate character segmentation and South African character recognition. They are several processes that have to be done in the process of number plate detection. The are many problems and complications that arise under the number plate detection such as vehicle in motion, complex background, distance changes, unclearness of the number plate, during day and night etc. For solving this kind of the problem we will apply edge analysis method. By the use of Horizontal and Vertical projections, the number plate segments will be able to be identified fully. South African Number plate contains of letters and numbers and number plates are segmented into characters. The feature extraction method is applied to extract the necessary characters needed for the number plate to be recognized successfully and after this method the characters are recognized.
