Hi all,
Just very new to this amazing and interesting world of robotics. Coming to the point, my friends and I trying to build a application that will read text from an ID presented to a CCTV camera. Essentially we want to take a snap shot of the ID and do some kind of OCR(optical character recognition) and announce the age of the individual. Big deal is extracting the text form the image...

thankyou

Roborealm could possibly do this. Check out their tutorial on reading a digital temperature display (http://www.roborealm.com/tutorial/Digital_Reader/slide010.php), you might use their project there as a good reference for what you're trying to do.
