TrustID is using the ABBYY FineReader Engine to process national driving licences as part of its TVS identity validation solution. The ABBYY recognition platform offers Optical Character Recognition (OCR); Intelligent
Character Recognition (ICR); barcode, checkmark, field-level/zonal recognition; and conversion of scans and images into searchable and editable documents. Once a document is scanned, TrustID TVS identifies it as a UK driving licence and then reads the required data fields, such as name, date of birth and document number. Data is validated and checked and the results presented to the user.
