Abstract

Systems for the recognition of shapes, characters or other objects utilize a methodology that will focus on a limited number of attributes. These systems have inherent limitations that are unique to that system. The unrecognizable objects of one system may be recognized by another system that employs a different methodology, hence the use of multiple systems either in tandem or in a contention mode could provide increased recognition performance over a system based on a single methodology. The application of such a system could improve the number of recognized objects and decrease the number of objects that are falsely identified. The dollar and processing costs of such a system could be minimized, i.e.

Multiple Recognition Algorithm Use

      Systems for the recognition of shapes, characters or other
objects utilize a methodology that will focus on a limited number of
attributes.  These systems have inherent limitations that are unique
to that system.  The unrecognizable objects of one system may be
recognized by another system that employs a different methodology,
hence the use of multiple systems either in tandem or in a contention
mode could provide increased recognition performance over a system
based on a single methodology. The application of such a system could
improve the number of recognized objects and decrease the number of
objects that are falsely identified.  The dollar and processing costs
of such a system could be minimized, i.e., not '2 times' by the
judicial implementation that targets one as the prime system and the
others to handle special cases that result from the prime.  Two or
more systems would be employed in combinations of tandem and
contention modes.
