How does Smart Engines improve your business?

Identity document scanning

Recognition of ID cards, passports, driver’s licenses, residence permits, visas, and more. Works on a mobile phone or server, on photos and scans, regardless of their quality, as well as in the video stream from a smartphone or web camera, robust to capturing conditions. No data transfer — scanning is performed on-device and on-premise.

Credit cards, barcodes, MRZ scanning

Recognition of data from codified objects. Captures machine-readable zones (MRZ), embossed, indent-printed, and free-template bank cards, PDF417, QR code, AZTEC and other linear and 2D barcodes using a smartphone’s camera, on the fly. Works in mobile applications (on-device) and scans photographs, regardless of lighting conditions.


Document & Form Reading software

Automatic extraction of data from documents (KYC questionnaires, applications, tests, etc), administrative papers (accounting documents, corporate reports, business forms), and government forms (financial statements, insurance policies, etc). Recognizes scans and photographs taken in natural conditions. Total security: only on-premise installation.

Computational Imaging and Tomography

Green AI for Tomographic reconstruction and visualization. Algorithmization of the image reconstruction process directly during the of X-ray tomographic scanning process. We aspire to reduce the radiation dose received during the exposure by finding the optimal termination point of scanning.
