Build a Document Scanner

Follow step-by-step instructions to create a simple document scanner.

In this lesson, we’ll use most of the OpenCV functions and techniques that we learned in this course to create a document scanner. Follow the given steps and write the code in the code widget at the end of the project.

We’ll create different functions to separate our work. First, we’ll import our libraries and image. You can even connect it with your webcam as a personal project.

Image processing

The basic purpose of a document scanner is to get the edges of our document. We use an edge detection technique to detect edges.
