Title (EN) APPARATUS, METHOD, AND COMPUTER READABLE MEDIUM FOR RECOGNIZING TEXT ON A CURVED SURFACE
(FR) APPAREIL, PROCÉDÉ ET SUPPORT LISIBLE PAR ORDINATEUR PERMETTANT DE RECONNAÎTRE DU TEXTE SUR UNE SURFACE INCURVÉE
Abstract:
(EN) A device and method are provided for recognizing text on a curved surface. In one implementation, the device comprises an image sensor configured to capture from an environment of a user multiple images of text on a curved surface. The device also comprises at least one processor device. The at least one processor device is configured to receive a first image of a first perspective of text on the curved surface, receive a second image of a second perspective of the text on the curved surface, perform optical character recognition on at least parts of each of the first image and the second image, combine results of the optical character recognition on the first image and on the second image, and provide the user with a recognized representation of the text, including a recognized representation of the first portion of text.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé permettant de reconnaître du texte sur une surface incurvée. Selon un mode de réalisation, le dispositif comprend un capteur d'image conçu pour enregistrer, dans l'environnement d'un utilisateur, de multiples images de texte sur une surface incurvée. Le dispositif comprend également au moins un dispositif de traitement. Le ou les dispositifs de traitement sont conçus pour recevoir une première image d'une première perspective du texte sur la surface incurvée, recevoir une seconde image d'une seconde perspective du texte sur la surface incurvée, effectuer une reconnaissance optique de caractères (OCR) sur au moins certaines parties de la première image et de la seconde image, combiner les résultats de la reconnaissance optique de caractères de la première image et de la seconde image, et fournir à l'utilisateur une représentation du texte reconnu incluant une représentation reconnue de la première partie de texte.
