About pixolus

pixolus’ recognition technology enables data entry using the camera of smartphones, tablets, mobile computers or smart glasses. This spares tedious and error-prone retyping of data. With a strong background in computer vision, machine learning, and software development, pixolus develops recognition functionality optimized for individual requirements. The app pixometer was our first own automatic meter reading (AMR) solution for the energy sector, which allows recognition and transmission of meter readings via smartphones. Recently we developed our app pixiban (iOS) for scanning IBANs.
