Algorithmic support for camera-based barcode reading.

Keywords: barcode, camera, localization, decoding, decryption, Code 128


An overview of the algorithms for detecting and decoding barcodes on the example of one-dimensional barcodes is presented. An algorithm that provides camera-based recognition and decoding of barcodes for further work with the data associated with them is proposed.
