Digits OCR onboard?

Postby jumasheff » Fri Mar 11, 2016 5:10 am

Hi there,

Can this board handle digits OCR'ing on its own? If not, is it possible to cut a piece of an image containing digits and save it as a standalone image?

Dear team, thank you for this great project!

Hi,

You can probably cut digits out of an image. However, it might be slow in python. The board certainly has the computational capabilities to do OCR if we put it in firmware. But, as for right now, there are other things to focus on.

There's a Haar cascade for detecting license plates, you could save the detected area directly to uSD. However, this cascade is not in repo.

Sounds promising. Any plans to include that into repo?

Anyways, you did fantastic job already. Thank you!
