Image Enhancing Software:
When a picture of a linear bar code is taken with a phone camera, the image may not be very clear. I need a software that will enhance the image if necessary and then extract the bar coding information. At this stage the software does not have to run on a cell phone. This is the proof of concept stage so all that is required is to develop the software to run on a regular PC.
The language of choice will be VB.NET 2.0
Since this is a proof of concept I want it to be in a language that is easy to understand.
So the main objective is to extract bar coding information form a picture taken by an average cell phone camera.
This is the first stage of a much larger project.
