Abstract –A fast, simple and effective method to recognize different hand writing
numbers is presented. Hand writing recognition took high attention in the recent years
by researcher of the intelligent systems, since it can be used in many applications such
as car plate recognition and bank account checking. The purpose of this paper is to
develop a method for hand writing numbers detection by using artificial neural network.
The suggested work is divided mainly into four stages and is proposed to resolve the
digits number (i.e., hand writing numbers). Image sample of hand writing numbers is
acquired by a digital camera or scanner, and then it is converted by using the suggested
work which is consisted of four stages to resolve digits. Artificial neural network
(ANN) was applied to recognize the hand writing numbers. Learning method of the
ANN is back propagation and all process handled by MATLAB language.
