Mastering YOLO: Build an Automatic Number Plate Recognition System

About the Book

In this comprehensive guide, you'll learn everything you need to know to master YOLOv8. With detailed explanations, practical examples, and step-by-step tutorials, this book will help you build your understanding of YOLOv8 from the ground up.

Discover how to train the YOLOv8 model to accurately detect and recognize license plates in images and real-time videos.

From data collection to deployment, master every step of building an end-to-end ANPR system with YOLOv8.

Who Is This Book For?

This book is aimed at individuals who already have some basic knowledge of Python programming, OpenCV, and computer vision.

It is ideal for Python programmers who are looking for a practical, hands-on guide to building more advanced object detection and recognition projects.

It is also suitable for anyone familiar with OpenCV and computer vision who wants to take their skills to the next level and learn how to apply object detection to solve real-world problems.

Whether you're a hobbyist, a student, or a professional developer, this book will provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to get started with building your own object detection and recognition systems.
