Paper Abstract

An image analysis system that simulates human print quality perception is being developed at The London College of Printing. This paper reports on some of the interim results of this project. The image analysis system has been tested to see whether it could detect the degradation of printed text character images when they are photocopied. The variables measured were the size, reflectance intensity and reflectance intensity gradients of these images. The system has been tested by making measurements on text characters without any need for alignment of the text character to the camera using neural networks.
