I thought of a project where the openMV could look at an odometer-type meter and quantify the analog output as a digital value.
Is there any type of HARR that is sophisticated enough to do alphanumeric recognition?
I imagine that this requires a neural network but I wanted to ask. Ideally I would segment the display into each column and then do a recognition of 0-9 on each segment. I am concerned that a neural net may be necessary to ID the numbers however one positive for the possibility of using openMV is that the numbers are consistent. If i provide consistent lighting then it may be possible to do some simpler “direct” image matching for each number rather than fuzzy matching / classification.
