Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel approach to optical character recognition that utilizes ring-projection-wavelet-fractal-signatures. In particular, the proposed approach reduces the dimensionality of a two-dimensional pattern by way of a ring-projection method, and thereafter, performs Daubechies' wavelet transform on the derived one-dimensional pattern to generate a set of wavelet sub-patterns, namely, curves that are non-self intersecting. Further from the resulting non-self intersecting curves, the divider dimensions are readily computed. These divider dimensions constitute a new characteristic vector for the original two-dimensional pattern, defined over the curves' fractal dimensions.
