Abstract

Most of theft detection issues are observed in multiple areas. So, this system is proposed to detect the electricity theft, in which reading of electric meter through images are used and preprocessing done with the help of OCR and XGboost. User’s monthly electric meter is captured in the camera and stored into the dataset. Upon successful completion of comparison between the meter unit values and its monthly meter average if we get difference between them then theft is detected. The values which actually goes under computation are trained and the results are displayed over the screen.
