    • Read Abstract

      With the advancement of image acquisition technology, extensive research is being conducted to convert images of paper documentation into an editable electronic format. Various techniques have been developed to extract either Text, Table or Figure region in a document image. However, our finding from past research suggests that these techniques do not deal with documents containing a combination of two or more such regions. Moreover, we believe that in order to facilitate document recreation, the extracted information requires organization in terms of its semantic layout and formatting. Therefore, we advocate the need of a combined technique for extracting each of these regions and need of structuring the extracted information efficiently. In this paper, we propose an efficient two-stage framework CDIA-DS (Compound Document Image Analysis-Data Structure) to cater the aforementioned needs. In the first stage, the regions in document image are identified, and classified in the form of Views (Text/Table/Figure). Views are then organized in the second stage through the proposed tree based structure comprising of leaf and parent nodes in the form of Views and Layouts (arrangement of one or more Views) respectively. In the end experiments are done, to examine the efficiency of CDIA-DS using the proposed data structure.

Projects

  • Image to Document Convertor based on Layout Analysis [pptx] [git]

    1. Localized and extracted information from compound document images comprising of text blocks, figures and tables.
    2. Proposed an n-ary tree based data structure for proper storage and retrieval of information contained in images.
    3. Used OpenCV (C++) along with Tesseract-OCR (Supported by Google) and Leptonica Image Processing Library.

  • Vision Based Autonomous Robot Navigation [pptx]

    1. Built an Autonomous robot based on Vision sensing which can interpret the environment to search for a given lookalike in an unknown arena.
    2. Deployed navigation algorithm in order to navigate through the arena avoiding obstacles based on a pattern.
    3. Used OpenCV library (Python) on Raspbian (Linux based OS of Raspberry Pi 2) along with control of L298H Motor Driver.

  • NSIT Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    1. Responsible for the machine vision to autonomously take-off/land the unmanned aerial vehicle.
    2. Helped in the modeling and fabrication of the fuselage and the wing-span of the vehicle.
    3. Negotiated with companies for sponsorship through presentations and meetings.
