  • Publication number: 20210224565
    Abstract: A method for recognition of characters by optical means in an unclear or non-optimal image of an object document, the image carrying shadows or other impediments inputs the document into a shadow prediction model to obtain a shadow mask. A determination is made as to whether the shadow mask of the document affect an optical character recognition (OCR) performance. The method further inputs the document into a shadow removing model for removal of shadows to obtain an intermediate document if the shadow mask are deemed to affect the OCR performance, then OCR can then be performed on the final object document.

The hard disk controller and CPLD communicate with the hard disk module. The CPLD receives output signals from the hard disk controller and determines whether rise and fall changes in a clock signal of each output signal are steady. When a level change of the clock signal of one output signal is steady, the CPLD decodes the one output signal. When a level change of the clock signal of one output signal is not steady, the CPLD will stop decoding the one output signal. A related method is also provided.
