Barcode Reading Accuracy

Feb 3, 2016 at 8:51 PM

Before I ask my question, I would like to thank your entire team for making this api and allowing us to use it fro free. I am using your your code to read VIN barcodes from pictures and it works well for the majority of the time. However, the api is not able to read barcode that is in the windshields and the code will sometimes not work even when the picture taken is good. Is there a confidence rating that is used to rate the barcodes accuracy? If so, are you able to adjust it?

No, there is no confidence rating which can be adjusted.
I suppose that the light reflection of windshields makes it hard to recognize the barcode.
Perhaps you should add some preprocessing to the image.
