Recognition Technology for Four Arithmetic Operations

Wang Meng, Bian Guangrong, Zheng Kai, He Ninghui, Zhang Yanlei


Numeral recognition is an important research direction in field of pattern recognition, and it has broad application prospects. Aiming at four arithmetic operations of general printed formats, this article adopts a multiple hybrid recognition method and is applied to automatically calculating. This method mainly uses BP neural network and template matching method to distinguish the numerals and operators, in order to increase the operation speed and recognition accuracy. Sample images of four arithmetic operations are extracted from printed books, and they are used for testing the performance of proposed recognition method. The experiments show that the method provides correct recognition rate of 96% and correct calculation rate of 89%.
