Hi, I'm Using ROS for autonomous robotic arms, and the next stage is identifying Barcode on boxes/objects with use of data base capability. I have followed previous tutorials using AR code which works and I'm able to to get ar_pose of the object, which then I can use to grasp object. Can anyone suggest me a similar package but with Barcode?

Many Thanks.

you are not limited by ROS packages to do that. There is probably a lot of libraries out there that can do the barcode scanning and that you can integrate into your code.

I see, but is there any particular one you can suggest and popularly used with ROS?. Thanks.

There is a package for the ZBAR library.

I do not know about the pose information but it can read barcodes.

I will give this a try, but I will need to generate a pose as well.

Witch the zbar you gen get the 4 corners of the code. witch open cv you could compute the pose, if you know the size of the code
