We can use a combination of Deep Learning and Shape Context to detect and identify license plates. DL to detect the vehicle and corners of the license plate and Shape Context to recognize the alpha numerals in the license plate. See the OpenVINO model is able to detect the vehicle and license plate as shown below.
