How to read bar codes with MVTec HALCON

In this tutorial you'll learn how to read bar codes with MVTec HALCON. Most bar codes can be read with default parameters using just two operators, create_bar_code_model and find_bar_code. However, there are many ways to adapt the bar code reader to a specific application, for example to speed up the decoding process or to read even more challenging bar codes.

Additionally, we take a closer look at some debugging options, like inspecting the candidates and scanlines. In the course of this video you’ll learn about lots of HDevelop examples that illustrate various aspects of the bar code reader.
