Evolution of barcode technology: mathematical models for advanced decoding algorithmsMS70

A crucial requirement for automatic barcode reading algorithms is real-time processing also on cheap, poorly performing hardware. Moreover, robustness against potential distortions of the processed signals (noise, blur, poor illumination, low resolution etc.) is a desirable property. After a brief introduction on the barcode world, with a view of related mathematical/statistical formulation of the decoding process, we will briefly outline some important open problems with related state-of-the-art research directions for the industrial barcode reading community.
