Myanmar Driving License

Function

This API detects and extracts text from images of Myanmar-issued driver's licenses and converts the text into a structured JSON format. For details about the constraints on using this API, see Constraints and Limitations. For details about how to use this API, see Introduction to OCR.

Figure 1 Example Myanmar driving license

Constraints and Limitations

  • Only images in PNG, JPG, JPEG, BMP, or TIFF format can be recognized.
  • No side of the image can be smaller than 15 or larger than 4,096 pixels.
  • Currently, only the front of a driving license can be recognized each time.
  • A driving license can be rotated to any angle.
  • The driving license in the image can be moderately distorted, but the aspect ratio cannot be distorted by more than 10%.
  • Illuminated or dark images can be recognized, but the accuracy may be compromised.

Calling Method

For details, see Calling APIs.

Prerequisites

Before using this API, subscribe to the service and complete authentication. For details, see Subscribing to an OCR Service and Authentication.

Before using the service for the first time, you need to enable the service by clicking Subscribe. You only need to subscribe to the service once. If you have not subscribed to the service yet, error "ModelArts.4204" will be displayed when you call this API. Before you call the API, log in to the OCR console and subscribe to the corresponding service. Ensure that you make the subscription to the service in the same region where you want to call this API.

URI

POST /v2/{project_id}/ocr/myanmar-driver-license

Table 1 URI parameters

Parameter

Mandatory

Description

endpoint

Yes

Endpoint, which is the request address for calling an API.

The endpoint varies depending on services in different regions. For more details, see Endpoints.

project_id

Yes

Project ID, which can be obtained by referring to Obtaining a Project ID.

Request Parameters

Table 2 Request header parameters

Parameter

Mandatory

Type

Description

X-Auth-Token

Yes

String

User token

Used to obtain the permission to call APIs. The token is the value of X-Subject-Token in the response header in Authentication.

Content-Type

Yes

String

MIME type of the request body. The value is application/json.

Enterprise-Project-Id

No

String

Enterprise project ID. OCR uses Enterprise Project Management Service (EPS) to split fees for resources used by different user groups and users.

To obtain the enterprise project ID, go to the Enterprise Project Management console, click the enterprise project name, and obtain the enterprise project ID on the enterprise project details page.

For details about how to create an enterprise project, see Optical Character Recognition User Guide.

NOTE:

After an enterprise project is created, parameter transfer involves the following scenarios:

  • If a correct enterprise project ID is carried and the OCR service can be used properly, the bills are allocated to the enterprise project corresponding to the ID.
  • If an incorrect enterprise project ID is carried and the OCR service can be used properly, the enterprise project in the bills is allocated to Non-project.
  • If no enterprise project ID is carried and the OCR service can be used properly, the enterprise project in the bills is allocated to Non-project.
Table 3 Request body parameters

Parameter

Mandatory

Type

Description

image

No

String

Set either this parameter or url.

Base64-encoded image file. The image file has a size limit of 10 MB.

No side of the image can be smaller than 15 or larger than 4,096 pixels. Only images in JPEG, JPG, PNG, BMP, or TIFF format can be recognized.

An example is /9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAg.... If the image data contains an unnecessary prefix, the error "The image format is not supported" is reported.

url

No

String

Set either this parameter or image.

Image URL. Currently, the following URLs are supported:

  • Public HTTP/HTTPS URL
  • URL provided by OBS. You need to be authorized to use OBS data, including service authorization, temporary authorization, and anonymous public authorization. For details, see Configuring Access Permissions of OBS.
NOTE:
  • The API response time depends on the image download time. If the image download takes a long time, the API call will fail.
  • Ensure that the storage service where the image to be detected resides is stable and reliable. OBS is recommended for storing image data.

convert_unicode

No

Boolean

Output format. The options are:

  • true: The output will be in the Unicode format.
  • false: The output will be in the zawgyi format.

If this parameter is not specified or does not exist, the output will be in the zawgyi format by default.
