If you want to use Raspberry Pi as an economical way of detecting barcodes, you can take account for Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK. As a business software, Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK is designed for overcoming a variety of complicated scenarios with sophisticated algorithms and heavy computations. Although the SDK is flexible for customizing algorithm parameters, subject to the low-frequency CPU of Raspberry Pi, the tradeoff between recognition accuracy and detection speed is still a big challenge. In this article, I will use Socket client-server model as a substitute solution. Thanks to Sabjorn’s NumpySocket module.
Qt for Python enables developers to quickly create GUI apps on Windows, Linux and macOS with one codebase. In this article, I will share how to build a Python barcode reader with Qt on Windows. Since Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK is also cross-platform, it is easy for you to reuse the sample code on Linux and macOS.
