Abstract

In this paper, we report recent work of the data-embedding pen, which adds an ink-dot sequence along a handwritten pattern during writing. The ink-dot sequence represents some information, such as writer’s name, date of writing, and URL. This information drastically increases the value of handwriting on a paper. The embedded information can be extracted from the handwritten pattern by image processing techniques and a stroke recovery technique. Consequently, we can augment the handwritten pattern by the data-embedding pen to carry arbitrary information.
