A Framework For Recognition Books On Bookshelves
Published 2009 · Computer Science
In this paper, we present a framework to recognize books on bookshelves by reading its title on book spines. The framework consists of control and recognition module. Control module moves camera to suitable positions for image capturing while recognition one processes taken images to know which books are shelved on the shelves. Firstly, images are captured from random position. Secondly, we separate it into book and non-book regions. Then, books in book region are segmented by using line segment and MSAC based dominant vanishing point (DVP). After book verification stage, adaptive Otsu's thresholding is employed to extract book titles and ready for recognition of next stage. In case recognizing unsuccessfully, we feedback control information to control module to adjust camera location and repeat the above procedure.
