Abstract
Since the performance of a character recognition system is mainly determined by the classifier, we introduce one that is especially tailored to our application. Working with 100 different classes, the most important properties of a reliable classifier are a high generalization capability, robustness to noise and classification speed. For this reason, we designed a classifier that is a combination of two types of classifiers, in which the advantages of both are united. The fundamental structure is given by a decision tree that has in its nodes either a support vector machine or an artificial neural network. The performance of this classifier is experimentally proven and the results are compared with both individual classifier types.
