Paper Abstract

A new thinning algorithm for binary images is presented. The algorithm is based on the analysis of crossing segments that are constructed by an almost perpendicular approach to the direction of the line. In the appropriate area, similar crossing segments or similar boundaries as well as special connecting points are located. The experimental results carried out on handwritten characters show the efficacy of the algorithm with respect to other methods.
