%K self-reading, energy consumption, chatbot application, image processing, deep learning.
%X Self-reading is a process in which the consumer is responsible for measuring his own energy consumption, which can be done through digital platforms, such as websites or mobile applications. The Equatorial Energy group's electric utilities have been working on developing a chatbot application through which consumers can send an image of their energy meter to a server that runs a method based on image processing and deep learning for the automatic recognition of consumption reading. However, the incorporation of these methods in a solution available to the public should consider factors such as response time and accuracy, so that it presents a satisfactory response time when it needs to handle a large number of simultaneous requests. Therefore, this paper presents a comparative study between approaches developed for the automatic recognition of consumption readings in images of electric meters sent to the server. Response time performances are analyzed through stress tests that simulate the real application scenario. The mean average precision (mAP) and the accuracy metrics of the methods are also analyzed in order to evaluate the generalization of the used convolutional neural networks.
