Passport Recognition and Processing SDK Technology

LEADTOOLS provides state-of-the-art Passport Recognition and Processing SDK technology for .NET (C# & VB), iOS, macOS, Linux, Java, and web developers. This framework follows international machine-readable zone (MRZ) standards in addition to using the advanced image analysis and optical character recognition (OCR) in LEADTOOLS to identify the country of origin and extract identification information found on machine-readable passports (MRP) from any country.

Automated passport reading and processing is an essential tool for boosting the accuracy and efficiency at which any security or government agency can operate, helping to keep travel safe and secure without adding unnecessary bottlenecks and delays.

Overview of LEADTOOLS Passport Recognition and Processing SDK Technology

  • Develop applications for industries and government agencies requiring machine-readable passport (MRP) and machine-readable travel document (MRTD) recognition and processing
    • Airport security
    • Border checkpoints
    • Immigration
    • Any process using passports as a unique form of identification
  • Recognize and extract passport features and fields regardless of image resolution, scale, and other characteristics
  • Extract text from fields with common headers such as Name, Address, Total, etc. even when the filled form does not match the master
  • Advanced passport alignment algorithm compensates for non-linear deformations introduced by different scanners, printers, and resolutions
  • World-class accuracy and speed
  • Unique color and bitonal image recognition for scanned documents and pictures
  • Automatic detection and correction of passport orientation and skew angle
  • Utilize camera preview on phones and tablets for real-time passport recognition and processing
  • Enhance recognition accuracy with powerful document cleanup and preprocessing
  • Use regular expressions to find and validate text
  • Comprehensive confidence reporting for each passport field type
    • Character location, size, and baseline
    • Character attributes (end of word, end of line, end of paragraph, etc.)
    • Font properties (monospace, proportional, serif, sans-serif, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough)
    • Confidence values
  • Load and save passport identification information as XML for simplified storage and editing
  • Utilize LEADTOOLS Fast Twain to rapidly scan documents
