Barcodes here, Barcodes there …

… Barcodes everywhere.

Sorry about the long gap since the last post, summer break and a new very interesseting research project took some of the spare time. I hope i will be able to give some more info about the Robot Kinematics as well as some Java3D Gotchas (and annoying library issues) soon :)

As mentioned before, our current (almost done) research project is about Barcode Localization and Decoding. We developed a very stable localization method using classical image processing methods as well as applied statistics. Our decoding uses a very robust method for line classification using paramterizable non-linear membership functions.

We plan to improve to optimize the code further and run a study comparing the effectiveness of public available barcode recognition software. Later we will cover some topics of interest relating to the development of this methods.

A few Screenshots of the current version:
