Abstract—Gray Eye T raffic Surveillance (GETS) is a system based on image processing technology and database processing for the purpose of Traffic Surveillance. This system is built specifically for India, where standard fonts and scripts for the number pl ates are rarely followed and corruption is a menace. This pa per attempts to present a system to automate the entire process of traffic surveillance and curb corruption at the same time. A two way approach of developing a desktop and a web based mobile application is proposed. The desktop based application uses image processing technology to recognize the license number from image of vehicles captured by surveillance cameras and maintain a track log. T he web based mobile application can be used by author ized traffic police to file complaints. The general public can log into this application to view their log and file complaints in case of any discrepancies. Different database schemas are used for various purpose like authentication, crime details, trackin g system.
