Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new scheme for multiresolution recognition of totally unconstrained handwritten numerals using wavelet transform and a simple multilayer cluster neural network. The proposed scheme consists of two stages: A feature extraction stage for extracting multiresolution features with wavelet transform, and a classification stage for classifying totally unconstrained handwritten numerals with a simple multilayer cluster neural network. In order to verify the performance of the proposed scheme, experiments with unconstrained handwritten numeral database of Concordia University of Canada, that of Electro-Technical Laboratory of Japan, and that of Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute of Korea were performed. The error rates were 3.20%, 0.83%, and 0.75%, respectively. These results showed that the proposed scheme is very robust in terms of various writing styles and sizes.
