Image Processing for OCR and Barcodes

RSIP Vision creates custom advanced Optical Character Recognition and barcode software that enables our clients to automatically digitize and classify the non-digital, from handwritten documents to license plates to photos. Our OCR software delivers accurate results where off-the-shelf software fails, as we did in projects involving a range of languages and alphabets, digitizing floating text as well as symbols in art works.

Deep Neural Networks for OCR

OCR used for the visual inspection of documents has found wide application in both industry and research, though it is more commonly found in connection with printed characters than for handwritten ones, mainly owing to the variability in handwritten characters' shapes and styles. Hence the need for automatic recognition performed by vision-based tailor-made algorithms and adjustment. Deep Neural Networks as a learning mechanism to perform recognition have proved to be particularly powerful tools, due to their high accuracy in both spotting text region and deciphering the characters. Read more...

OCR for Low Contrast Images

It is not uncommon that images needing automatic Optical Character Recognition were originally taken in low light or under direct sunlight. RSIP Vision has developed software which accurately binarizes vehicle number plates even in low contrast images, resulting in quick and accurate transmission of license plate details to the client’s database for further action.

OCR in Natural Scenes

With the advancement in technology, the demand for OCR in natural environment is growing, even though outdoor conditions are far from being optimal for machine vision applications: occlusion of written text, text orientation, font style, blurring due to camera motion, and lighting conditions can prove themselves significant challenges in the task of performing real time OCR. Great progress has recently been made in the recognition of characters partially occluded and under heavy noise. RSIP Vision tells you how. Read more...

OCR for Check Scanner

Due to the different styles of handwritten characters, digitalizing check information can be very challenging. But not enough for RSIP Vision's engineers, who built software for a client to enable him to do just that: detect different handwriting as well as printed check information and transmit all this data from smartphones to the bank. The result is that bank customers using the app which we developed for our client can deposit checks by simply taking a picture of them with their smartphones. Read more...

Barcode Detection in Complex Scenes

Automatically localizing and reading barcodes captured by a smartphone-based cameras have great value for industrial and personal applications but create new technical challenges: quality of the image, motion blurs, unpredictable distance to barcode, non-uniform orientation and unknown location of the barcode itself. Image processing and computer vision algorithms can solve these issues: ask RSIP Vision how we do it. Read more...
