Paper Abstract

Optical spatial filtering techniques have been applied to character recognition; several papers have been written which illustTae the basic principles of these techniques. The primary difficulty is that the similarity between certain sets of characters and the variations in a given character due to noise sources make it difficult to make adequate discrimination and to achieve sufficiently low error rates.
