Connecting A Barcode Scanner To An Arduino

Posted February 25, 2013 by Chris

“A gadget that I demonstrate today is a portable autonomous barcode scanner built using an Arduino board, USB Host shield, handheld USB barcode scanner and LCD display. The operation is simple – when handheld scanner button is pressed, it scans the barcode and sends it to the Arduino symbol by symbol. The Arduino then outputs these symbols on LCD display.”
