Digitization of Hand-Written Notes Using a Wearable Camera

Eiji Watanabe, Takashi Ozeki, and Takeshi Kohama
Abstract—In taking hand-written note, the taking process plays important roles for recalling related information in addition of notations (words and figures) in the note. In this paper, we focus on the process through taking hand-written note. First, introduce an image processing method for the deduction of the position of pen head by using a wearable type camera. Next, we propose a method for the transformation of the physical position of the pen head into the logical position based on behaviors by students. Here, the logical position denotes the line and character numbers in the hand-written note. Moreover, we detect the face movement by using the block-matching method.

Index Terms—Image processing, hand-written note, noting process, wearable camera.
