ABCNet: Real-time Scene Text Spotting with Adaptive Bezier-Curve Network

CVPR 2020 aim-uofa/adet

Our contributions are three-fold: 1) For the first time, we adaptively fit arbitrarily-shaped text by a parameterized Bezier curve.

Shape Robust Text Detection with Progressive Scale Expansion Network

CVPR 2019 whai362/PSENet

Due to the fact that there are large geometrical margins among the minimal scale kernels, our method is effective to split the close text instances, making it easier to use segmentation-based methods to detect arbitrary-shaped text instances.

Shape Robust Text Detection with Progressive Scale Expansion Network

7 Jun 2018whai362/PSENet

To address these problems, we propose a novel Progressive Scale Expansion Network (PSENet), designed as a segmentation-based detector with multiple predictions for each text instance.

TextBoxes++: A Single-Shot Oriented Scene Text Detector

9 Jan 2018MhLiao/TextBoxes_plusplus

In this paper, we present an end-to-end trainable fast scene text detector, named TextBoxes++, which detects arbitrary-oriented scene text with both high accuracy and efficiency in a single network forward pass.
