I am currently working on a project in which I am working towards using a laser barcode scanner as a camera.
For the time being, I have been looking into extracting images from optical mice, are the concepts the same? So far extracting the image data seems to be a little elusive, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with barcode scanners and the software needed to work with them?
Currently I am using a type LS2600 cable USB barcode scanner.
Super beginner but very capable. Ive been working with arduino for the past year if that helps anyone.
I'd really like to hear from you guys.
