ICDAR Robust Reading Competitions – TC11
The aim of the Robust Reading Competition is to find the best system able to read complete words in camera captured scenes. This page is editable only by TC11 Officers. Challenges are selected to cover a wide range of real-world situations.
This entails both locating the text in the image in terms of bounding boxes of individual words and recognising the containing text. For this purpose, they are partitioned into two subsets: More information about each challenge is provided in their respective pages: Four independent competitions were organised: Navigation menu Toggle navigation TC Each dataset is provided as a zip file, and contains a set of Icrar images of single characters and an XML tag file containing the ground truth character classes.
Submission of results deadline August: The aim of this competition is to find the competitiosn system able to read single words that have been extracted from natural scenes. The challenges introduced for the edition are summarized in the following figure:. Registration of interest 5 March: 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.
Trial datasets serve two purposes.
These tasks were organised in a closed mode, meaning that the participants had to submit an operational version of their system for independent testing. Retrieved from ” http: 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. Icrar site online 15 January until 31 March: 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 rrobust developed specifically for text containers other than scanned paper documents, and include born-digital images and videos to mention a few.
Introduction – ICDAR RobustReading Competition
Each challenge is set up around different tasks. Introduction “Robust Reading” refers to the research area dealing with the interpretation of written communication readinng unconstrained settings. The datasets used for the final performance evaluation are not available for any of the competitions.
Sample datasets are provided to give you a quick impression of the data, and also to allow function testing of your software. Datasets available 2 April: Use TrialTrain to train or tune your algorithms, then quote results on TrialTest. The aim readibg this competition is to find the best system able to classify single characters that have been extracted from natural scenes.
The challenges introduced for the edition are summarized in the following figure: The competition is organized around challenges that represent specific application domains for robust reading.
That is, you can run tests on icar sample data to check that your software works with the data, but the results won’t mean much.
