Date Issued:

Summary:
Surveys are made of both character recognition and image processing. The need to apply image processing techniques to character recognition is pointed out. The fields are then combined and tested in sample programs. Simulations are made of recognition systems with and without image preprocessing. Processing techniques applied utilize Walsh-Hadamard transforms and l ocal window operators. Results indicate that image prepro c ess i ng improves recognition rates when noise degrades input images. A system architecture is proposed for a hardware based video speed image processor operating on local image windows. The possible implementation of this processor is outlined.
