Title Current Status and Future Prospects of Camera-Based Character Recognition and Document Image Analysis
Journal IEICE Technical Report
Series PRMU2004-246
Month & Year March 2005
Abstract Pervasive use of handy digital cameras with higher resolution is now defining new roles of character recognition and document image analysis as a mean of analyzing camera-captured images. In this report, we survey state-of-the-art of research and technologies of camera based character recognition and document image analysis. We also describe the current position and future prospects of character recognition and document image analysis in comparison with related technologies such as ``barcodes''. In addition, we briefly introduce our research entitled ``embedding information on characters using cross ratios'' whose final goal is to make character recognition as easy and accurate as bar-code reading.
