Image and text recognition: Our Solutions

IronShark has developed a StromTracker app for the power grid of Hamburg and Berlin. It allows an optical detection of the meter reading with a smartphone camera which directly transmits the information to the supplier. In addition to that it can also send descriptive statistics and consumption forecasts of the specific customer.

For Graf Dichtungen IronShark developed an image recognition application for an easy identification of seals, e.g. seals designed for car windows or doors. A one photo of the seal is sufficient to recognize the type of seal and allows the customer to select and display a suitable product from the assortment of the online shop. For this image and text recognition solution Graf Dichtungen won the Innovation Competition “Trade in Transition” prize.

What is image recognition?

Image recognition is the automatic recognition and processing of photos and images in order to read information. For this purpose, individual objects are segmented in an image in order to assign a specific description to them and thereby determine what is shown on the image. Image recognition is used to tag photos in databases, recognize faces or check products in production for their correctness.

We have also developed our own app for image recognition: DeepView. Our app for automatic image recognition was even among the winners of the Innovation Prize IT Initiative Mittelstand in 2012.

What is Optical Character Recognition (OCR)?

Text recognition is also known as Optical Character Recognition or OCR for short. It allows texts or numbers automatically be read from raster graphics, posters or documents. In order to do so, the image is first freed from superfluous information and distortions are corrected. Thereafter, the text recognition takes place via library.

We have successfully completed various complex projects with text recognition. Among other things, we have developed an app for reading meter readings and an app for checking ID documents.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is the extension of the perception of reality, which mixes the perceived environment with computer-generated objects. Users benefit from additional information that is directly related to reality. The special feature of augmented reality is that the additional information is embedded in the perception in real time.

Countless areas of application can be equipped with our augmented reality technology. For example, we develop apps in the service area by providing a service technician with additional information via mobile app about a component that is currently in need of repair.

Video analysis

With video analysis you can analyze computer-aided motion sequences. This technique allows you to define “good” movements, such as those of your family or pets. The IronShark video analytics system will allow you to set up zones to monitor. The system automatically detects movements and checks whether they count among the permitted movements or not. If the motions are not permitted, you will be notified on your smartphone or tablet so that you can see live stream where  the smart motion alert was triggered. You can access system’s live images anytime and anywhere in the world. This is made possible by the integration of our system in a mobile app or in a web app.

IronShark is your partner in  developing image and text recognition solutions. Our programmers have several years of experience and have already successfully implemented many complex, highly functional solutions. We guarantee a 100% individual app, which remains up-to-date thanks to long-term cooperation.
