I’d like to point off the shelf IP cameras at some 2d barcodes and have software read and report the codes found, as well as their relative positions (x, y coordinates). All this to be read into Ignition or a PLC.
I’m sure I could do it with with Cognex cameras but they are very expensive and I’d like to have all the smarts in one place versus having to program a bunch of cameras. I’m thinking there must be some software out there that tunes into the camera feeds and provides similar tools to what I’ve used in the past w/ Cognex products.
Has anybody ever worked a problem like this?
