A single image super resolution algorithm for license plate preprocessing is proposed in this paper. The image to be enhanced is modeled as a Markov Random Field and is estimated from the input low resolution image by image patch pairs. From the input image and the training set, observation function and compatibility function can be calculated. Then Bayesian Belief Propagation is used to select the most probable high resolution patches candidate in the MRF model. The experiment shows that using this method can get better license plate with more information for further recognition.
