A2iA announced today that it has been granted Patent No. 9,160,946 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Released earlier this year, A2iA Mobility’s Auto-Locate feature automatically detects a document, check or ID card within a video stream and intelligently locates and captures the image when it is found in focus. Simplifying the user experience by allowing for the quick capture of documents without having to touch the shutter button of the camera, there is no bounding-box or pre-defined capture zone required. The user simply holds the mobile device over the document and ensures the corners are shown on the screen of the phone or the tablet. Regardless of its orientation, A2iA Mobility automatically detects the edges, captures the image, and performs offline image correction and data extraction – directly on the device.
