Hello guys,

I'd like to know if someone can give some help here.

The idea here is to take a picture with a webcam, then use that image and somehow write a software that can interpret the numbers in the image. I was thinking on using C or C++.

Does anyone can give me a tip or know where a should start?

Regards.

There are some approaches depending on the performance required ( pre-processing done at the embedded system, size of the region of interest of the picture, reading rate, etc… ), but currently the most common decision is the use of some ARM11 architecture or above ( e.g. Cortex A8 ) with the OS Linux running inside, and make a program using the OpenCV library.
