    SCIENCEDIRECT

    Convolutional neural networks and data augmentation strategies are tuned, producing a model of 87.12% accuracy for the verification of 2,640 human signatures. Two approaches are used to successfully attack the model with false-acceptance of forgeries. Robotic arms (Line-us and iDraw) physically copy real signatures on paper, and a conditional Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) is trained to generate signatures based on the binary class of ‘genuine’ and ‘forged’. The 87.12% error margin is overcome by all approaches; prevalence of successful attacks is 32% for iDraw 2.0, 24% for Line-us, and 40% for the GAN.

USING UUNA TEK® iDraw

1.Can I download the manual?

Yes, you can download the software with the user manual here>>>

2.How long does plotting take?

The plotting time for UUNA TEK® iDraw is not fixed, unlike a (raster-based) inkjet or laser printer. It is contingent on the distance the pen needs to travel. UUNA TEK® iDraw typically moves at a pace comparable to a human hand, depending on your settings, resulting in variable plotting times.

Comparing this to the question of how long a human takes to write or draw on a piece of paper is apt. For instance, addressing an envelope might generally take a minute or two, while creating intricate artwork could extend to a matter of hours. The same variability applies to UUNA TEK® iDraw. Notably, our speed ranks highest in the market compared to any other competitors.

3.Is the speed of UUNA TEK® iDraw adjustable?

Yes, the speed of UUNA TEK® iDraw is adjustable to cater to your specific preferences, offering a tradeoff between faster completion and higher precision. UUNA TEK® iDraw is capable of swift movements, surpassing the normal speed of a human, especially when executing broad strokes with a wide-tipped marker. However, for enhanced precision and neatness, similar to how a human calligrapher would adjust, UUNA TEK® iDraw allows you to moderate the speed. For reference, the wedding invitation text featured in our video provides a good indication of the typical writing speed when prioritizing higher neatness, slightly slower than regular human handwriting.

4.Can I input my signature?

Certainly! The most effective method is to directly capture your signature as you sign it, such as on a phone or tablet screen. This allows UUNA TEK® iDraw to reproduce your signature exactly as you wrote it during the capture.

5.Can it replicate my handwriting?

Yes, but it involves an additional step of creating a custom font. Our UUNA TEK® iDraw is compatible with Hershey fonts and the Defects extension, which can introduce handwriting-like "defects" to your text. This ensures that text arranged in perfectly even rows, as seen with a handwriting font in MS Word, doesn't appear overly "robotic" and retains a more authentic handwriting feel.

6.Can you replicate handwriting from scans?

No, not in the way you might expect.

Certainly, you can scan handwritten text, use a bitmap tracing tool to trace it, and then plot it. UUNA TEK® iDraw will faithfully plot the paths you provide.

However, it's important to note that, with only rare exceptions, automatic tracing of scanned handwriting tends to produce a somewhat unnatural imitation of handwriting. We generally advise against incorporating this method into any workflow due to the potential drawbacks in replicating authentic handwriting.

7.Is a paper feeder available?

Yes, check the new released auto feeding pen plotter here>>>
