  • Patent number: 6431447
    Abstract: This invention is related to a system and a method for reading high precision printed barcodes and their specification verification. The presented invention has a technique of reading both logistic sorting barcode (one or two dimension) and multi-layered structure barcode such as four-state barcode for automatic postal matter sorting. The invention also investigates height of high densely reduced barcodes in more than 3 steps, and precisely measures and reads the values of black bars thickness and white spaces. Previous techniques used laser beam for reading barcodes, but could not read barcodes, which have print density of less than 1/100 mm˜1/1,000 mm unit, and, it was also impossible to read precise specification values in case that barcode specification was composed of length unit indexes. The presented invention overcomes the previous said problems by using a laser diode array.

  • Publication number: 20010010334
    Abstract: There is disclosed a method of exactly delivering a mail item and a method of processing the mail item depending on the delivery result. Conventionally, if mail information to be delivered to a recipient is erroneously written, the mail item is automatically sorted based on the erroneous information. Also, if the recipient is unknown, the mail item is manually sorted to return it to the sender. Thus, this conventional method has problems that it requires a lot of time in processing the mail item. In order to overcome these problems, the present invention allows a mail customer to write correct mail information into his/her mail item upon printing of a customer barcode, notifies information on the delivery process to the mail customer, effectively returns a return mail item and notifies information on the processing state to the mail customer.
