They do however generally rely on a barcode being presented in a fixed position.

Envisage Systems have a range of hardware and software solutions available to deal with problems such as these.
Each application is judged on its own merits and a conclusion drawn, in conjunction with the customer, as to the best means of tackling the project.
The major consideration during the initial evaluation phase is how practical is the application.
