Abstract

Motion blur can easily affect the quality of images. For example, Quick Response (QR) code is hard to be identified with severe motion blur caused by camera shaking or object moving. In this paper, a motion blur QR code identification algorithm based on feature extraction and improved adaptive thresholding is proposed. First, this work designs a feature extraction framework using a deep convolutional network for motion deblurring. The framework consists of a basic end-to-end network for feature extraction, an encoder-decoder structure for increasing training feasibility and several ResBlocks for producing large receptive fields. Then an improved adaptive thresholding method is used to avoid influence caused by uneven illumination. Finally, the proposed algorithm is compared with several recent methods on a dataset including QR code images influenced by both motion blur and uneven illumination. Experimental results demonstrate that the processing time and identification accuracy of the proposed algorithm are improved in executing motion blur QR code identification missions compared with other competing methods.
