Good font to recognize numerical statements

August 6, 2013 - 1:14am #1

For my graduation I'm making an app that recognizes mathematical statements.

 

I am really excited about the new text recognition, but unfortunately I cannot use it for this project yet, because of the lack of number recognition. So I will be satisfied with a mock-up product that recognizes the mathematical statements as regular ImageTargets.

 

Preferrably I don't have to use tricks like textured backgrounds because that's quite distracting for my purposes. So I'm now experimenting with several fonts to see which get's the best tracking results. However, I don't really have a feeling for the new tracking algorithms, which can also recognize shapes with few features.

 

So, my question is: does anyone have suggestions for fonts that will perform reasonably well when used as ImageTarget?

 

Thanks!

Robin

My suggestion would be to set up some test cases that vary two factors: 1) The font 2) the Background of the Image Target - say four of each.

Then you can better evaluate which combination out of the 16 works best.

Once you do this it would be great if you could share your results :)
