Localizing and Recognizing Integral Pitches of Cheque Document Images
Automatic reading of handwritten cheque is a computationally
complex process and it plays an important role in financial
risk management. Machine vision and learning provide a viable
solution to this problem. Research effort has mostly been focused
on recognizing diverse pitches of cheques and demand drafts with an
identical outline. However most of these methods employ templatematching
to localize the pitches and such schemes could potentially
fail when applied to different types of outline maintained by the
bank. In this paper, the so-called outline problem is resolved by
a cheque information tree (CIT), which generalizes the localizing
method to extract active-region-of-entities. In addition, the weight
based density plot (WBDP) is performed to isolate text entities and
read complete pitches. Recognition is based on texture features using
neural classifiers. Legal amount is subsequently recognized by both
texture and perceptual features. A post-processing phase is invoked
to detect the incorrect readings by Type-2 grammar using the Turing
machine. The performance of the proposed system was evaluated
using cheque and demand drafts of 22 different banks. The test data
consists of a collection of 1540 leafs obtained from 10 different
account holders from each bank. Results show that this approach
can easily be deployed without significant design amendments.

Localizing Acoustic Touch Impacts using Zip-stuffing in Complex k-space Domain
Visualizing sound and noise often help us to determine
an appropriate control over the source localization. Near-field acoustic
holography (NAH) is a powerful tool for the ill-posed problem.
However, in practice, due to the small finite aperture size, the discrete
Fourier transform, FFT based NAH couldn-t predict the activeregion-
of-interest (AROI) over the edges of the plane. Theoretically
few approaches were proposed for solving finite aperture problem.
However most of these methods are not quite compatible for the
practical implementation, especially near the edge of the source. In
this paper, a zip-stuffing extrapolation approach has suggested with
2D Kaiser window. It is operated on wavenumber complex space
to localize the predicted sources. We numerically form a practice
environment with touch impact databases to test the localization of
sound source. It is observed that zip-stuffing aperture extrapolation
and 2D window with evanescent components provide more accuracy
especially in the small aperture and its derivatives.
