Cooperation of multi-layer perceptrons for the estimation of skew angle in text document images

Abstract : Estimating the skew angle in text document images can be a crucial problem in optical character recognition. Based on a new sensor array processing technique, an original solution to skew angle estimation (SAE) is proposed. Thanks to the reformulation of the SAE problem in the framework of angle of arrival theory, a fast and accurate method is presented that is based on the cooperation of two neural networks. The first neural net is a three-layer perceptron receiving on input the values of the correlation matrix of the signals; the output is a "rough" estimation of the angle to estimate. This gross estimate is then used to initialize the weights of a second multi-layer perceptron (MLP). The second MLP is built in order to perform a maximum likelihood-like optimization, therefore reaching good performances. The system, though trained on simulated radar data, shows good performances on noisy handwritten texts.
