Meet Smart Engines SDK 1.5.0: now supporting 1700 identity documents!

Smart Engines SDK 1.5.0 for mobile, desktop, server and web applications exceeds all expectations from OCR by accuracy, speed, and number of supported languages. Explore all 1700 identity documents securely and quickly recognized by Smart Engines.


With the updates of this version, our mobile SDK will report to a user that ID scanning on both sides is possible. For example, this mode enables to easily scan EU ID card from both sides within a single session in a mobile app.

We delved into developing more USA IDs to scan: we added work permit and new driver’s license templates, medcards, residence permit and vehicle registration certificates. And do not miss other improvements and updates of automated data extraction from video, photos or scans.
