Mobile Phone cards recharge using OCR (Applied on android platform)


This paper focuses on finding a new easy and effective approach to recharging the phone
cards utilizing the innovation in our hand as mobile camera and OCR (Optical character
recognition) technology. The main advantages of the proposed solution are made up of a
combination of hardware and software that is used to convert physical recharge card into
machine-readable text to saved time, decreased errors and minimized effort. According to
the study of systems development life cycle (SDLC) new demands create new ideas and
invent new technology. This Paper can be worthy in real life experience because
recharging our mobile cards is one of the activities that nearly all the people do. So instead
of entering the numbers manually, we present a new way in recharging mobile cards
automatically by detect pin number portion from mobile recharge cards by image
processing detection technique with the Technology of OCR for recharge processes. After
the detection, and extracting processing the OCR text that is given within the recharge
card it sends request to the respective mobile operator for recharging balance. Our main
idea is to build an android based application replace the typing of pin numbers with a few
seconds snap-shot recharge, making the recharging process much easier and quicker. This
app eliminates all the troubles we face in dialing and enter the correct recharge number
effectively from the first run through. We will use the machine learning and specifically the
optical character recognition in order to make recharging much easier and prevent errors
from occurring. We have built an application based on android cell phone making the
recharging process much easier and quicker.
