Paper Abstract

Color is one of the most powerful and important types of visual information in various fields such as image processing, electronic imaging, and robot vision technologies. A new color character recognition system, composed of a camera, optical filters, an image board, a neuro board, and a micro computer was constructed. Using typewriter characters and backgrounds in five colors, two kinds of experiments were performed. The first consisted of preliminary experiments testing the effectiveness ofthe modified opponent-colortheory ofthe human eye for use in machine character recognition. The second was an experiment in color character recognition, in which the system recognized both characters and their colors.
