Here you can find a demo of the barcode detection and recognition routine. The current version is set up to detect a barcode labels mostly oriented horizontally and vertically. The routine processes each frame of the video stream and scans it trying to detect a barcode starting position, relying on the appearance specific of the barcode labels. As long as a potential starting position detected the routine applies the set of the image filters to increase the readability of the scanned window. Then recognition algorithm tries both to read and validate the barcode label starting from the detected point. You may see for yourself that such combination of detection and recognition algorithms works pretty well.
This demo works with UPC-A and EAN-13 barcode types.
