Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.
First, the configuration in the present embodiment will be described.

  FIG. 1 shows a main part configuration of a barcode reading apparatus 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention. The barcode reader 1 is a hand-held reader that allows a user to read a barcode while holding the scanner portion in his / her hand. As shown in FIG. 1, a CPU (Central Processing Unit) 10, a display unit 11, an input unit 12, a storage unit 13, a RAM (Random Access Memory) 14, a reading unit 15, and a gyro sensor 16, and each unit is electrically connected via a bus 17 and receives power supply from a power supply unit 18.

  The CPU 10 develops various control programs stored in the storage unit 13 in the RAM 14 and performs various processes in cooperation with the control programs. Specifically, the CPU 10 performs a barcode reading process according to a control program stored in the storage unit 13 (see FIG. 2).

  The display unit 11 includes a display such as an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), and performs a required display process according to a display control signal input from the CPU 10.

  The input unit 12 includes various keys such as a trigger key for starting barcode reading, and a touch panel provided so as to cover the display screen of the display unit 11, and an operation signal generated by key operation or touch panel operation. Is output to the CPU 10.

  The storage unit 13 stores various control programs executed by the CPU 10 and data necessary for executing these control programs.

  The RAM 14 has a program storage area for developing various control programs executed by the CPU 10 and a data storage area for temporarily storing input data and data such as processing results generated when the control program is executed.

  The reading unit 15 includes a CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) image sensor, a CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image sensor, an A / D converter, or the like. The reading unit 15 uses a CMOS image sensor or a CCD image sensor to read a barcode with reflected light of a laser beam irradiated on the barcode to be read, and photoelectrically converts the optical image signal obtained by the reading into an electrical signal (analogue). Signal), the analog signal is converted into a digital signal by an A / D converter, and barcode image data is obtained.

  The gyro sensor 16 includes an acceleration sensor 161 and an inclination sensor 162, and detects the movement state of the reading unit 15 in the three-dimensional space during the barcode reading operation. The acceleration sensor 161 detects the acceleration of the reading unit 15 moved in the three-dimensional space, the time moved, and the direction moved. Based on the information detected by the acceleration sensor 161, the moving distance of the reading unit 15 can be calculated. The tilt sensor 162 detects the tilt of the reading unit 15 caused by the movement of the reading unit 15 in the three-dimensional space. Based on the inclination detected by the inclination sensor 162, the light irradiation angle with respect to the barcode surface can be calculated.

Next, the operation in this embodiment will be described.
First, the barcode reading process executed under the control of the CPU 10 of the barcode reading apparatus 1 will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

  When the trigger key of the input unit 12 is pressed, the reading of the barcode is started by the reading unit 15 at a predetermined scanning speed (for example, 100 scans / second). Image data ”) is acquired (step S1). Each barcode image data acquired for each reading in step S1 is stored in the RAM 14 (step S2).

  Next, correction processing for correcting each barcode image data stored in the RAM 14 in step S2 to barcode image data acquired when read from a preset reference position is performed (step S3). The correction process in step S3 will be described in detail later with reference to FIGS.

  Next, the barcode image data corrected in step S3 is synthesized (step S4). In the synthesis in step S4, for example, by superimposing each barcode image data, the missing bar portion (rubbed portion, lightly printed portion, etc.) in one barcode image data is replaced with other barcode image data. Processing such as compensation is performed.

  Next, barcode decoding processing is performed using the combined barcode image data (step S5). In the decoding process in step S5, the array of white and black bars represented by the barcode image data is converted into data representing an array of numerical values and characters.

  When the decoding process is completed, it is determined whether or not the decoding process can be normally performed in the decoding process of step S5 (step S6). If it is determined in step S6 that decoding could not be performed normally (step S6; NO), if it is before time-out (step S7), the process returns to step S1 and continues the barcode reading operation. .

  In step S6, when it is determined that the decoding can be normally performed (step S6; YES), the decoding processing result is output (for example, displayed on the display unit 11) (step S8), and the barcode reading process is performed. Ends.

  Next, barcode image data correction processing (step S3 in FIG. 2) will be described in detail with reference to the flowchart in FIG. 3 and FIGS.

  In the present embodiment, the barcode image data correction process is actually acquired from the reading unit 15 based on the movement state of the reading unit 15 in the three-dimensional space (xyz) acquired from the gyro sensor 16. In this process, the barcode image data is corrected to barcode image data acquired when the barcode image data is read from a preset reference position. In the following description, it is assumed that the central portion of the barcode surface is the origin O of the orthogonal coordinate system, the direction perpendicular to the barcode surface is the x-axis direction, and the direction in which each bar on the barcode surface is arranged is the y-axis direction.

  In the present embodiment, the movement state in the three-dimensional space of the reading unit 15 acquired from the gyro sensor 16 is classified into the following five types based on the irradiation state from the light source OS of the reading unit 15, and the respective movement states are classified. A corresponding correction process (correction H1 to correction H5) will be described.

[1] A state in which light is irradiated so as to approach the barcode surface β (see FIG. 4);
[2] A state in which light is irradiated away from the barcode surface β (see FIG. 7);
[3] A state in which light is irradiated so as to be inclined with respect to a reference direction (parallel to the x-axis direction) in the xy plane (see FIG. 10);
[4] A state in which light is irradiated so as to move in the bar array direction (y-axis direction) with respect to the barcode surface β (see FIG. 13);
[5] A state in which light is irradiated so that the irradiation line on the barcode surface β is inclined with respect to the bar arrangement direction (y-axis direction) (see FIG. 16).

  Note that the movement state actually detected by the gyro sensor 16 is a combination of the movement states corresponding to the above [1] to [5], but these combined movement states are the above [1] to [1] to [5]. By performing the correction process for each moving state separately in [5], a result equivalent to the correction process for the combined moving state is finally obtained.

  In the barcode image data correction process shown in FIG. 3, first, the movement state of the reading unit 15 is acquired from the gyro sensor 16 (step S20). Then, the moving state is such that light is irradiated so as to approach the barcode surface β as shown in FIG. 4 (moving state [1]) or light is moved away from the barcode surface β as shown in FIG. It is determined whether or not the irradiation state (movement state [2]) is included (step S21).

  If it is determined in step S21 that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 includes the movement state [1] or the movement state [2] (step S21; YES), the following correction H1 or correction H2 is performed. (Step S22).

[Correction H1]
In the moving state [1] shown in FIG. 4, as the light source OS approaches the barcode surface β, the width of the light irradiation line L on the barcode surface β becomes narrower as shown in FIG. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 5B, the width of each bar actually recognized by the reading unit 15 is larger than the original width shown in FIG. In FIG. 5 (a) and FIG. 5 (b), the “bar width” corresponding to each of white and black is a counter value that represents the width of the bar. The width is 10, the white width is 20, and so on. The same applies to the following FIG. 8, FIG. 11, FIG. 14, and FIG.

The rate at which the bar width increases in accordance with the movement distance of the light source OS of the reading unit 15 varies depending on the characteristics of the scanner module used in the reading unit 15 and is set in advance. For example, as shown in FIG. 6, the bar width acquired by the first reading is B1, the bar width acquired by the second reading is B2, the movement distance of the light source OS acquired from the gyro sensor 16 is ΔD, When the rate at which the bar width becomes thicker according to the movement distance is the correction coefficient f1, the bar width after correction by the correction H1 is expressed as shown in Expression (1).
Bar width after correction = bar width before correction × ΔD × f1 (1)

[Correction H2]
In the moving state [2] shown in FIG. 7, as the light source OS moves away from the barcode surface β, the light irradiation line L on the barcode surface β becomes wider as shown in FIG. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 8B, the width of each bar actually recognized by the reading unit 15 is narrower than the original width shown in FIG.

The rate at which the bar width is reduced according to the moving distance varies depending on the characteristics of the scanner module used in the reading unit 15 and is set in advance. For example, as shown in FIG. 9, the bar width acquired by the first reading is B1, the bar width acquired by the second reading is B2, the movement distance of the light source OS acquired from the gyro sensor 16 is ΔD, When the rate at which the bar width is reduced according to the moving distance is the correction coefficient f2, the bar width after the correction with the correction H2 is expressed as shown in Expression (2).
Bar width after correction = bar width before correction × ΔD × f2 (2)

  In step S21 of FIG. 3, when it is determined that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 does not include either the movement state [1] or the movement state [2] (step S21; NO), or in step S22 When the correction H1 or the correction H2 ends, the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 is light so as to be inclined with respect to the reference direction (parallel to the x-axis direction) in the xy plane as shown in FIG. It is determined whether the state (moving state [3]) is included (step S23).

  When it is determined in step S23 that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 includes the movement state [3] (step S23; YES), the following correction H3 is performed (step S24).

[Correction H3]
As shown in FIG. 10, when the light irradiation direction is inclined with respect to the x-axis, the irradiation line L on the barcode surface β shown in FIG. 11A is the bar position (y coordinate value). Depending on the distance from the light source OS. Therefore, in the case of the movement state [3] shown in FIG. 10, the distance from the light source OS becomes closer to the positive direction of the y-axis as shown in FIG. Since the distance from the light source OS increases toward the negative direction of the axis, the bar width becomes narrower.

As shown in FIG. 12, when the light irradiation direction is inclined at an inclination angle Θ with respect to the x axis, the rate at which the bar width changes according to the bar position (y = Bd) is determined by the reading unit 15. It differs depending on the characteristics of the scanner module used, and is preset as a function of the bar position Bd and the inclination angle Θ acquired from the gyro sensor 16. When the rate at which the bar width changes is the correction coefficient f (Bd, Θ), the bar width after the correction with the correction H3 is expressed as in Expression (3).
Bar width after correction = bar width before correction × f (Bd, Θ) (3)

  In step S23 of FIG. 3, when it is determined that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 does not include the movement state [3] (step S23; NO), or when the correction H3 in step S24 is completed, the gyro sensor As shown in FIG. 13, the movement state acquired from 16 is a state (movement state [4]) in which light is irradiated such that the barcode surface β moves in the bar arrangement direction (y-axis direction). It is determined whether or not it is included (step S25).

  When it is determined in step S25 that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 includes the movement state [4] (step S25; YES), the following correction H4 is performed (step S26).

[Correction H4]
In the case of the movement state [4] shown in FIG. 13, the irradiation line L on the barcode surface β shown in FIG. 14A moves in the bar arrangement direction, and therefore the barcode start margin recognized by the reading unit 15. The width (or the width of the end margin) changes as shown in FIG. Therefore, in correction H4, the bar code image data acquired by the second reading is used as a reference, the width of the start margin of the bar code image data acquired by the second reading is determined as a bar code having characteristics such as a start code. Correct based on image data.

As shown in FIG. 15, if the counter values up to the first black of the barcode in the first and second readings are c1 and c2, respectively, the width of the start margin is corrected by cx = c1-c2. That's fine. That is, the width of the start margin after correction is expressed as Equation (4).
Width of start margin after correction = width of start margin before correction + cx (4)

  In step S25 of FIG. 3, when it is determined that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 does not include the movement state [4] (step S25; NO), or when the correction H4 in step S26 is completed, the gyro sensor As shown in FIG. 16, the movement state acquired from 16 is a state in which light is irradiated so that the irradiation line on the barcode surface β is inclined with respect to the bar arrangement direction (y-axis direction) (movement state [ 5]) is included (step S27).

  If it is determined in step S27 that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 includes the movement state [5] (step S27; YES), the following correction H5 is performed (step S28).

[Correction H5]
In the moving state [5] shown in FIG. 16, as shown in FIG. 17A, the irradiation line L on the barcode surface β is inclined with respect to the bar arrangement direction (y-axis direction). As shown in FIG. 17 (b), the width of each bar is larger than the original width shown in FIG. 17 (a).

For example, as shown in FIG. 18, when the first reading direction is parallel to the bar arrangement direction (bar width B1), and the second reading direction is inclined at an angle θ with respect to the bar arrangement direction, The bar width B obtained by correcting the bar width B2 obtained by the second reading is expressed as shown in Expression (5).
B = B2 · cosθ (5)

  However, in actual reading, since the first reading is not always parallel to the bar arrangement direction as shown in FIG. 18, the first reading is also performed in the bar arrangement direction as shown in FIG. The correction value of the bar width should be calculated including the case where it is inclined. As shown in FIG. 19, the bar width obtained by the first reading is B1, the bar width obtained by the second reading is B2, and the inclination angle obtained from the gyro sensor 16 between the first and second readings. Is θ. In this case, as shown in FIG. 20, in a triangle in which the lengths of the two sides are B1 and B2 and the angle between both sides is θ, the perpendicular line extending from the vertex corresponding to the angle θ to the opposite side (length C) The length B is a bar width correction value.

In the triangle of FIG. 20, the length C is calculated as shown in Equation (6).
Since the area of this triangle is (1/2) B · C = (1/2) B1 · B2 · sinθ, the corrected bar width B is calculated as shown in Equation (7).

  In Step S27 of FIG. 3, when it is determined that the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 does not include the movement state [5] (Step S27; NO), or when the correction H5 in Step S28 is completed, the correction is performed. The bar code image data is stored in the RAM 14 (step S29), and the correction process is completed.

  As described above, according to the barcode reading apparatus 1 of the present embodiment, the barcode image data acquired by the reading unit 15 based on the movement state acquired from the gyro sensor 16 is set to a preset reference position. By correcting the barcode image data when read from the barcode, even a barcode having a defect as shown in FIG. 21 can be correctly combined. Thereby, an accurate reading result can be obtained.

  Note that the description in the present embodiment can be changed as appropriate without departing from the spirit of the present invention.

  For example, in the above-described embodiment, the correction processing when the light source OS moves in the substantially xy plane with respect to the barcode surface β has been described, but in addition to the movement states [1] to [5] described above. When correction processing corresponding to the movement state including movement in the z-axis direction is performed, more precise synthesis processing can be performed.

  In the above-described embodiment, the case where the moving state of the reading unit 15 is detected using the gyro sensor 16 has been described. However, if the moving state in the three-dimensional space can be detected, another sensor is used. May be.
