Objectives and Approach

The aim of the PAPYRUS project was developing pen-based application environments and end-user applications which feature a natural person/computer interface via the usage of the electronic paper and the recognition of unrestricted handwriting and gestures.

The project contributed to the advance in the basic technologies needed to pursue this aim. Research effort was thus spent in the fields of: algorithms, methods and techniques for the recognition of dynamic cursive script and gestures; neural computing; methods and techniques for language analysis; integration of cursive script recognition in pen-based software platforms; pen-based work group systems; pen-based applications.

Results and exploitation

The following results were obtained:
