Abstract

See full text

A system described herein includes a detector component that automatically determines location of a license plate in a digital image. The system further includes a blurrer component that automatically blurs the digital image at the determined location of the license plate, wherein blurring undertaken by the blurrer component is based at least in part upon confidence scores assigned to pixels in the digital image that correspond to the determined location of the license plate.
