    Hi,

    I need to identify character's with a camera. For example, if I hover the camera over an image that contains a character my MCU must be able to identify the character in the image for further processing.

    The camera may be a black and white camera and I am only identifying letters or numbers for the prototype.

    For a demonstration, I will have a large single letter or number on a sheet of paper and my mcu must be able to identify the character.

    I have one of these SD card readers (http://www.gravitech.us/sdcaad.html) if I need to access it to store some images.

    Do any of you know of a camera, mcu, or even similar projects that I can research to achieve this project? Any advice would be of great use.

    Thank You and Happy 2014!

    Look at openCV, it's the go to library for image processing...You will need a fairly fast processor...
