|20130307977||METHOD FOR IMAGE ACQUISITION - A method for image acquisition of an object in transit on a movable supporting surface includes detecting a presence signal of the object in a preset position, and at least one dimension and/or position signals, the signals being generated by at least one sensor arranged upstream of a linear camera; detecting a “trigger event” signal, generated on the basis of the presence signal, the linear camera starting to acquire an image on the basis of the “trigger event” signal; starting to acquire an image of the object, when the object has travelled a preset distance from the preset position, the distance being calculated by an advance sensor suitable for generating a signal comprising an electric pulse at each preset movement of the movable supporting surface; and setting a mode for image acquisition of the linear camera on the basis of a resolution of the advance sensor.||11-21-2013|
|20130256410||METHOD FOR DECODING A TWO-DIMENSIONAL OPTICAL CODE - A method for decoding a two-dimensional optical code formed by a set number of codewords, wherein decoding the code based on a single acquired image has not been successful, includes analysing an acquired image and at least one further acquired image and obtaining a respective set and further set of values of identified codewords. Each codeword can take on either an undefined value or vice versa a numeric value if the codeword is recognised. A combined set of codewords is created and each codeword of the combined set is assigned a value of a codeword of the set and/or of the further set and an algorithm for detecting and self-correction of errors is applied to the combined set to obtain confirmation of successful decoding of the two-dimensional code.||10-03-2013|
|20130038719||IMAGE CAPTURING DEVICE - An image capturing device includes an image forming device including a sensor defining an optical reception axis, at least one reading distance, and a region framed by the sensor on a substrate at said at least one reading distance. An illumination device includes an array of adjacent light sources defining an optical illumination axis. The light sources are individually drivable, and each light source is adapted to illuminate an area of a size much smaller than the size of said region framed by the sensor. The illumination axis does not coincide with the reception axis. A driver of the light sources is adapted to drive the light sources so as to switch off at least the light sources that illuminate outside of the boundary of the region framed by the sensor on the substrate at said at least one reading distance.||02-14-2013|
|20120286146||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR GENERATING A SYNCHRONIZATION SIGNAL IN A SCANNING SYSTEM - A scanning system includes a synchronizing arrangement including a light guide and a photosensor. The light guide directs a light beam to a photosensor, wherein light is deflected by one or more moving elements in the scanning system into a scanning region. The light guide has a light entry region, a reflecting region for reflecting light entering the light entry region and one or more light exit faces, so that light entering the light guide through the light entry region is at least partly reflected in the reflecting region and exits through one of the exit faces. The shape and the properties of the light guide are such that for two pencils of light rays, a first pencil of light rays is spaced from the second pencil and is non-overlapping with said second pencil of light rays.||11-15-2012|
|20120286043||PORTABLE DEVICE AND METHOD FOR READING CODED INFORMATION - A portable device includes coded information reading means, digital image acquisition means and an illuminator, associated with the acquisition means for acquiring images. The illuminator is powerable by a driving signal which corresponds to a first current signal in a first operating mode for illuminating an image to be acquired and is powerable by the driving signal which corresponds to a second current signal in a second operating mode for emitting a visual indication indicating the outcome of the reading of the coded information, read by coded information reading means. The illuminator, which acts as a flash to acquire an image in the first operating mode, thus also acts as a visual indication of the reading outcome in the second operating mode and illuminates with a continuous or intermittent light the space in front of the illuminator to indicate to an operator that the coded information has been read.||11-15-2012|
|20120256001||METHOD FOR DECODING A LINEAR BAR CODE - A barcode decoding method includes obtaining a plurality of scanning lines defining a second set of scanning lines which also comprises a predetermined scanning line. Each scanning line has a first set of pixels, each identified by a first and by a second index. The pixels that are part of the second set of scanning lines define a third set of pixels and, from the pixels of the third set of pixels, it is possible to select a fourth set of pixels to construct an oversampled profile of the barcode, ordering intensity values calculated from the intensity values of the pixels of the fourth set. The pixels of the fourth set include pixels of the predetermined scanning line and further pixels of the third set that do not belong to the predetermined scanning line, to obtain a subpixel resolution that is able to decode the barcode.||10-11-2012|
