Robust Pattern Recognition Scheme for Devanagari Script

  title={Robust Pattern Recognition Scheme for Devanagari Script},
  author={Amit Dhurandhar and Kartik Shankarnarayanan and Rakesh Jawale},
In this paper, a Devanagari script recognition scheme based on a novel algorithm is proposed. Devanagari script poses new challenges in the field of pattern recognition primarily due to the highly cursive nature of the script seen across its diverse character set. In the proposed algorithm, the character is initially subjected to a simple noise removal filter. Based on a reference co-ordinate system, the significant contours of the character are extracted and characterized as a contour set. The… CONTINUE READING
