Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR IMAGE RECOGNITION SERVICES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE SERVICES DE RECONNAISSANCE D'IMAGES
Abstract
(EN)
A system to provide image processing services responsive to requests including image data includes a system layer that forwards a request to an image application processing interface. Image processing provides an image comparison, barcode recognition, and optical character recognition. The image processing compares the image data to products in a database in order to identify a matching product. The system layer receives the matching information and forwards to a user.
(FR)
Un système pour assurer des services de traitement d'images en réponse à des demandes comprenant des données d'images comprend une couche système qui transmet une demande à une interface de traitement d'application d'images. Le traitement d'images assure une comparaison d'images, une reconnaissance de codes à barres et une reconnaissance optique des caractères. Le traitement d'images compare les données d'images à des produits contenus dans une base de données afin d'identifier un produit correspondant. La couche système reçoit les informations correspondantes et les transmet à un utilisateur.
