The article is devoted to the development and analysis of methods of identifying dynamic objects. A neural network with the architecture of SSD InceptionV2 has been developed to solve the problem of detecting luggage tags and barcodes. Several approaches are considered to solve the problem of identifying digital-letter information: Tesseract, SSD InceptionV2, OpenCV and a fully connected neural network. The operability of the methods on real images has been tested.
