Neha Chandrakant Gawde, Dhanashree Ashok Salvi, Kiran Bodake, Pragati Pejlekar


One common way to obtain information in the modern society is to read books. As books are not portable enough to carry and read, there has been demand for electronic books. Devices for digitization of books, called book scanners, have been invented. However, most book scanners target industrial consumers such as companies, libraries, and schools, leaving behind personal consumers. Book-Scanning is the process of converting physical books into digital media such as images, electronic text, or electronic books (e-books). These can be easily distributed, reproduced, and read-on screen. The digitization of book requires a scanner. After the page turned the camera will capture the image. User interaction for scanning and page turning is not required.

Keywords: page pick-up head, page turner arm, V-shape cradle, perforated means porous or it has series of small holes on it, sturdy means strongly and solidly built, actuated means start to operate.
