Optical Character Recognition Robot

6 pagesPublished: August 5, 2017


In this paper presents optical character recognition robot (OCR) which is capable of converting image into the computer process able format, in the form of plain text using Raspberry pi and a webcam server where we can live stream video over a local network. Our ultimate goal is to find and solve the different requirements in making a web controlled robot that recognizes and converts textual messages placed in real world to the computer readable text files. Our objective is to integrate the appropriate techniques to explain and prove that such capability, using limited hardware and software capabilities. The objective of our work is to provide an internet controlled mobile robot with the capability of reading characters in the image and gives out strings of characters. In the project we will use MOTION software, which is open source software with a number of configuration options which can be changed according to our needs. Here configurations are to be made so that it allows you to view from any computer on the local network for the control of robot in non-line of sight areas.

Keyphrases: GUI, IoT, OCR, RPi
