I am doing my final year in BSc Computing and Information systems.
I am looking for some advice on my chosen project.
Its about a mobile based sign translator.Photos that contain some text in foreign language taken using mobile camera is sent to a work station where the text is detected from the image and recognised perhaps by using OCR techniques and then translated to target language(for example: french to english or chinese to english).The translation is sent back to mobile phone.
I have 8 months to complete my project and I would like to know if it is possible to start and finish this project within 8 months.
Using OCR techniques to detect text from iimages has been done in the past as a separate project which could hv taken some reasonable time.
Also the translation of one language to another has been done as a separate project in the past.
So my doubt is whether all these can be integrated to finish the project in 8 months??? Or may be if we can use existing OCR software in the project if its allowed...then it will make things easy.But is it acceptable to do that?The question arises then wat work is to be done by us if we r to use existing software in the project(is it just using all the software with a mobile)
Please please please.......... provide me with some advice and tips regarding this as to what is supposed to be done and which parts of the project can be narrowed through some other means instaed of doing all by ourselves.
Please help me.....!!!!!! :'(
