Car title data extraction

An image speaks more than a thousand words. Below is an example of the three steps our OCR engine takes to automatically extract data from car titles.

Uploading car titles to the OCR API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a car title to our API. This is typically done from a mobile app or a web application.

The document can be sent cropped or uncropped (with background). If the scan is sent uncropped, the Klippa API will automatically crop the document. The Klippa car title scanning SDK can also be used in mobile apps. 

Image to text using OCR

As soon as a picture or a PDF of the car title is received, our engine converts it to a TXT file. In this step, all the text from the document is extracted but not yet structured.

Getting JSON output from the API

The Klippa Parser takes the TXT gained from the OCR in step 2 and converts it into structured JSON using machine learning. The JSON is then returned as output from the API. From here the car title can easily be processed into your database. 

The example on the left is a simplified example and does not include all data fields. Every field on the label can be captured, including the line items.

Whether your organization processes car titles to verify ownership of vehicles for insurance claims, buying or selling, Klippa can significantly speed up your processing time.

Is Klippa car title capturing GDPR-compliant?
All the services that Klippa offers are fully GDPR-compliant. By default, we use ISO-certified servers within the European Union for processing. If you are not located within the EU, we can also set up servers in a region of choice. 

Next to that, a data processor agreement is in place. We do not store any of your or your customers’ data after processing.
Can Klippa convert car titles to CSV, XLSX, XML or JSON?
Yes we can. Klippa takes pictures of car titles, or their PDF equivalents, and converts them to readable text using OCR. 

From there we use machine learning to turn the text into structured data. Most of the time we use JSON for this, but depending on your preferences we can also convert car titles to CSV, XLSX or XML.

What is a car title?

A car title is a legal certificate, which is used to prove the ownership of a vehicle. It can also reveal the history of the car, whether it has been damaged, and so on. 

 The car title consists of information of the owner(s), details about the car, and the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). As such, it is crucial when selling, buying or trading a vehicle. 

 The most common type of car title is a hard copy (on paper). However, some states prefer to use electronic titles over paper copies. 

 With Klippa OCR, you can extract all information from car titles and deliver structured data for further processing in your database. No need to wait for weeks for car titles to arrive!

Did you know that apart from car titles, Klippa’s OCR can scan other types of data fields, such as license plates, VIN and TIN numbers? Contact us for more information.
