Abstract:
    Highway authorities require reliable and automated methods to accurately identify and verify vehicles since existing systems fail to validate the authenticity of license plate on a vehicle.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    7 out 10 crimes involve a vehicle. In such crimes, the vehicles have false license plates to evade capture and 87% of agencies reported that License Plate Recognition helps solve crime. CarMA not only reads the License Plate, but also tells if the license plate belongs to the right car.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   CarMA will benefit organisations like National Highway Authority and Law enforcement agencies like Islamabad Traffic Police in predicting and avoiding crimes. It will reduce crimes such as stolen vehicles, serial robberies, identity theft etc thereby, improving general sense of security for public.
How will the solution works
    CarMA will firstly localize a vehicle using convolutional neural networks, the output of which will be fed to a classifier to identify the make of the vehicle. Color identification will also be performed using image processing techniques. Secondly, it will localize and extract license plates using optical character recognition. The profile accessed through license plate will be compared with the detected one to verify the identity of the vehicle.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    License Plate Recognition is not a new concept in the world but it is a new one in Pakistan. No such system has been introduced despite constant demands from Traffic police. It not only provides information against the license plate but also ensures that the car has the right plate on it.
