Abstract

In this paper, we propose a vision-based technique to locate and decode EAN-13 barcodes from images captured by digital cameras. The ultimate aim of our approach is to enable electronic devices with cameras such as mobile phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) to act as a barcode reader.
