ID documents scanning as the way to avoid queues and improve safety at major public events

How the lack of an entrance tickets scanner slows the queue It is common knowledge that the biggest challenge public events at large open areas are facing today is the inevitable queues at the entrance. The queue usually occurs when a large number of visitors pass through narrow turnstiles and checkpoints, where…

QR-code localization – the important recognition step that has been neglected

QR-code recognition in an image is a well-established problem in machine vision. First of all, the research object was initially developed as a tool for more “comfortable” recognition. Secondly, the problem gets broken into a few separate clear sub-tasks: QR-code localization, QR-code orientation, and QR-code decoding. It turns out that…

Algorithms for text field recognition results post-processing

Today we’d like to look into the problem of post-processing the text field recognition results based on a priori knowledge about the text field. A significant part of important documents, including identification documents, consists of the fields of a different kind, such as dates, numbers, car VIN-numbers, TIN and social…

Compliance with legal age limits for alcohol and tobacco sales

Age verification as an integral part of the industry Many countries have implemented age limits to prevent underage purchases of alcohol. Sale of products with age restrictions requires special responsibility and vigilance from trade organizations: once sell alcoholic beverages or tobacco products to minors, it can cost the seller and…

Space character: there is more to it than meets the eye

Hey there, friends! As you already know, we, the Smart Engines team, specialize in text recognition (not exclusively) in various documents. Today we’d like to touch on one more challenging moment when it comes to text recognition on complex backgrounds, which is space character detection. We’ll be using names on…

Digital forgery prevention or document forgery detection

Why fake documents detection became so important Nowadays we witness the ongoing services growth which has become possible to provide remotely due to the advancement of technology, providers in some cases face the need for remote client’s identity which is vital for on-boarding, processing travel documents and implementation of customer profile. At…

Bipolar morphological networks: neuron without multiplication

It is quite hard to find a problem to be solved by any other way than a neural network. Moreover, other methods are not even considered in many cases. Logically enough during a ‘silver bullet’ hunt researchers and technologists propose newer and better neural-network architecture modifications which are supposed to…

HoughNet: vanishing point detection using the network fused with a classic algorithm

While the global object recognition community trains tens and even hundreds of successful artificial neural network (ANN) architectures that heating up the planet with the powerful video cards and developing a “panacea” for any computer vision problem, we, the Smart Engines team, don’t veer off our research path and keep…
