Abstract

This disclosure relates generally to document validation system. More specifically, this disclosure relates to a serial number imaging implementation within a document-verifying or other system. Commercially available document-verifying systems often include sensors (optical/magnetic/capacitive/inductive) that detect response of applied optical/magnetic/capacitive/inductive pulses to a document. These types of fraudulent document detection systems may be used in a variety of ways, such as in passport and monetary banknote handling systems where the documents may have unique serial number. This disclosure provides a serial number imaging implementation within a document-verifying system or other system. A document-verifying system comprising: a transport module comprising a document path and at least one window along the document path; at least one camera configured to capture one or more images of the document through the at least one window; and a processor coupled to the at least one camera, the processor configured to stitch the one or more images and perform optical character recognition on the one or more images to obtain a serial number of the document.

SERIAL NUMBER CAPTURE IN DOCUMENT-VERIFYING SYSTEM

TECHNICAL FIELD

[1]This disclosure relates generally to document validation system. More specifically, this disclosure relates to a serial number imaging implementation within a document-verifying or other system.

BACKGROUND

[2]Commercially available document-verifying systems often include sensors (optical/magnetic/capacitive/inductive) that detect response of applied optical/magnetic/capacitive/inductive pulses to a document. These types of fraudulent document detection systems may be used in a variety of ways, such as in passport and monetary banknote handling systems where the documents may have unique serial number.

SUMMARY

[3]This disclosure provides a serial number imaging implementation within a document-verifying system or other system.

[4]Other technical features may be readily apparent to one skilled in the art from the following figures, descriptions, and claims.

[5]Before undertaking the DETAILED DESCRIPTION below, it may be advantageous to set forth definitions of certain words and phrases used throughout this patent document. The term "couple" and its derivatives refer to any direct or indirect communication between two or more elements, whether or not those elements are in physical contact with one

another. The terms "transmit," "receive," and "communicate," as well as derivatives thereof, encompass both direct and indirect communication. The terms "include" and "comprise," as well as derivatives thereof, mean inclusion without limitation. The term "or" is inclusive, meaning and/or. The phrase "associated with," as well as derivatives thereof, means to include, be included within, interconnect with, contain, be contained within, connect to or with, couple to or with, be communicable with, cooperate with, interleave, juxtapose, be proximate to, be bound to or with, have, have a property of, have a relationship to or with, or the like. The term "controller" means any device, system or part thereof that controls at least one operation. Such a controller may be implemented in hardware or a combination of hardware and software and/or firmware. The functionality associated with any particular controller may be centralized or distributed, whether locally or remotely. The phrase "at least one of," when used with a list of items, means that different combinations of one or more of the listed items may be used, and only one item in the list may be needed. For example, "at least one of: A, B, and C" includes any of the following combinations: A, B, C, A and B, A and C, B and C, and A and B and C.

[6]Definitions for other certain words and phrases are provided throughout this document. Those of ordinary skill in the art should understand that in many if not most instances, such definitions apply to prior as well as future uses of such defined words and phrases.
