Prerequisite: Python GUI – tkinter

In this article, we are going to look at how can we use Python to extract vehicle information from its VIN number (Vehicle Identification Number). A VIN consists of 17 characters (digits and capital letters) that act as a unique identifier for the vehicle. It is a unique code that is assigned to every motor vehicle when it is manufactured. VIN can be used to extract information about a vehicle like the country it was manufactured in, its manufacturer, etc.

Before we start we need to install the vininfo module. Run this code into your terminal for installation:

pip install vininfo

Below is the implementation.

Python3




# importing module
from vininfo import Vin
 
# Pass the VIN number into Vin methods
vin = Vin('MAJGERTYKGHG56037')
 
# prints vehicle's country
print(vin.country)
 
# prints vehicle's manufacturer
print(vin.manufacturer)
 
# prints vehicle manufacturer's region
print(vin.region)

Output:

India
FordS
Asia

Program to extract information from VIN number Application with Tkinter. This Script implements the above implementation but in GUI.

Python3




# import modules
from tkinter import *
from vininfo import Vin
from tkinter import messagebox
 
 
def check_vin():
    try:
        vin = Vin(str(e.get()))
        country.set(vin.country)
        manufacturer.set(vin.manufacturer)
        region.set(vin.region)
        model.set(vin.wmi)
        Plant.set(vin.vds)
        Serial.set(vin.vis)
        year.set(vin.years)
        res.set("SUCCESS")
    except:
        messagebox.showerror("showerror", "VIN not found")
 
 
# object of tkinter
# and background set for light grey
master = Tk()
master.configure(bg='light grey')
 
# Variable Classes in tkinter
country = StringVar()
manufacturer = StringVar()
region = StringVar()
model = StringVar()
Plant = StringVar()
Serial = StringVar()
year = StringVar()
res = StringVar()
 
# Creating label for each information
# name using widget Label
Label(master, text="VIN NUMBER :", bg="light grey").grid(row=0, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Status :", bg="light grey").grid(row=3, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Country :", bg="light grey").grid(row=4, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Manufactures :", bg="light grey").grid(row=5, sticky=W)

Label(master, text="Model :", bg="light grey").grid(row=7, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Plant :", bg="light grey").grid(row=8, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Serial no:", bg="light grey").grid(row=9, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Year :", bg="light grey").grid(row=10, sticky=W)
 
 
# Creating label for class variable
# name using widget Entry
Label(master, text="", textvariable=res, bg="light grey").grid(
    row=3, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=country,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=4, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=manufacturer,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=5, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=region,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=6, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=model,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=7, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=Plant,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=8, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=Serial,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=9, column=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="", textvariable=year, bg="light grey").grid(
    row=10, column=1, sticky=W)
 
 
e = Entry(master)
e.grid(row=0, column=1)
 
# creating a button using the widget
# Button that will call the submit function
b = Button(master, text="Show", command=check_vin)
b.grid(row=0, column=2, columnspan=2, rowspan=2, padx=5, pady=5)
 
mainloop()
