Abstract : A descriptive, generative model of the pen direction sequences measured during the hand drawing of characters is shown to be useful in recognition. Proprocessing and classification procedures are based on the properties of the model. Results are presented from tests with a realization of these methods as a real time recognition system running in a small computer. (Author)
