Using OpenMV for text

Postby royalewithcheese » Sat Jan 04, 2020 1:41 am

Hey all,

I've checked online and I think i know the answer, but I wanted to double check. Has anyone been able to use OpenMV H7 Cameras to read text. I've got a project where a robot will navigate to a small screen and will be required to read instructions from a phone. I've seen youtube videos of this camera reading characters that are relatively large, however I am curious if I would be able to extract text that is around size 14 font black and on white background.

There's just a CNN that we trained a while ago that can do this for one letter. However, general text reading is not possible right now.

The focus push this year is to build out an automatic CNN training pipeline. However, we can only do classification and image segmentation. Anything else is likely not doable.
