Re: Intelligent barcode scanner
The two units one of our clients are using are from CHAINWAY … www.chainway.net
Older model C4050
They have builtin barcode reader ( laser ) and android
The barcode reader I believe has ability to dump what was read to keyboard buffer, so no special programming to read barcode data

Subject: [magicu-l] Intelligent barcode scanner
We are using standard batch-mode scanners (Zebra LI-4278) to scan packages for shipment. After a batch is scanned as the truck is being loaded, data is uploaded to a Magic program for inventory and documents. Our problem is that the user doesn't know if there has been a bad read until uploading at which time the truck is already loaded.
Wondering if anyone has found/devised a barcode data collection system that has enough intelligence to do some real-time analysis of scanned barcodes to determine things such as length read, all numeric, etc. and beep on failure so the user can rescan on the spot.
Perhaps an application on a phone if the scanning capabilities are adequate.
