In this paper, an iterative super-resolution reconstruction method is introduced for license plate recognition. A high-resolution image of the license plate is reconstructed by fusing the information derived from a set of subpixel shifted low-resolution images. The reconstruction problem is formulated as a system of linear equations that is solved by using the simultaneous algebraic reconstruction technique (SIRT). Simulation experiments show that SIRT can reconstruct a HR image with superior quality compared to conventional super-resolution reconstruction methods.
