Abstract: At present, the number of city cars has greatly increased, and fewer garages, parking difficulties and other problems seriously affect people's travel. In this paper, an intelligent garage system is designed, which uses the matching information of face recognition and licence plate recognition to store and retrieve cars, Firstly, the car owner's face is collected through the camera and face image is extracted. Meanwhile, the licence plate information is collected and image pre-processing, licence plate positioning, character segmentation and character recognition are carried out. Face and licence plate information are stored correspondingly. Secondly, according to the tracking car combined with communication, automatic car storage is realised. Face recognition is used to match licence plate or input licence plate information when extracting vehicles. Finally, the design of the garage interface, at any time feedback parking information, to achieve the software reservation, greatly improves the service efficiency.

Keywords: face recognition; licence plate recognition; intelligent garage; template matching; real-time feedback.
