The aim of this competition is to find the best system able to classify single characters that have been extracted from natural scenes. These tasks were organised in a closed mode, meaning that the participants had to submit an operational version of their system for independent testing.
This page is editable only by Readijg Officers. Robust Reading is at the meeting point between camera based document analysis and scene interpretation, and serves as common ground between the document analysis community and the wider computer vision community.
ICDAR Robust Reading Competitions – TC11
The competition is organized around challenges that represent specific application domains for roobust reading. Four independent competitions were organised: The datasets used for the final performance evaluation are not available for any of the competitions. For this purpose, they are partitioned into two subsets: Challenges are selected to cover a wide range of real-world situations.
Trial datasets serve two purposes.
Introduction – ICDAR RobustReading Competition
The challenges introduced for the edition are summarized in the following figure: Submission of results deadline August: Web site competktions 15 January until 31 March: Each dataset is provided as a zip file, and contains a set of JPEG images of single words and an XML tag file containing the ground truth transcriptions. Sample datasets are provided to give you a quick impression of the data, and also to allow function testing of your software.
More information about each challenge is provided in their respective pages: Typically Robust Reading is linked to the detection and recognition of textual information in scene images, but in the wider sense it refers to techniques and methodologies that have been developed specifically readinb text containers other than scanned paper documents, and include born-digital images and videos to mention a few. Registration of interest 5 March: Retrieved from ” http: The aim of the Robust Reading Competition is to find the best system able to readinv complete words in camera captured scenes.
Cpmpetitions available 2 April: Each dataset is provided as a zip file, and contains a set of JPEG images of single characters and an XML tag file containing the ground truth character classes. Use TrialTrain to train or tune your algorithms, then quote results on TrialTest.
Each challenge is set up around different tasks. That is, you can run tests on the sample data to check that your software works with the data, but rdading results won’t mean much.
The aim of this competition is to find the best system able to read single words that have been extracted from natural scenes.
This entails both locating the text in the image in terms of bounding boxes of individual words and recognising the containing text.
