Smart Code Engine

— instant 1D and 2D barcode scanning software suitable for a wide range of bills, receipts, taxes, AAMVA-compliant IDs, as well as from physical and digital documents, tickets, parcels, packages, posters, price tags, ads and screens; can be used in mobile apps, internet services and document entry systems.


Smart Code Engine SDK reads 1D barcodes (CODABAR, CODE_39, CODE_93, CODE_128, EAN_8, EAN_13, ITF, ITF14, UPC_A, UPC_E) and 2D barcodes (QR, AZTEC, PDF417 and DataMatrix). The system finds the barcode by itself — the user does not need to have a steady aim — everything is performed automatically: search, type detection and reading. The system is resistant to poor lighting conditions, camera angles and geometrical distortions.


Barcode reading does not need additional computing power and is performed automatically on device and in real time, without data transmission. It allows you to scan a barcode even on devices with limited processing power: smartphones (Android, iOS), tablets, thin clients, data collection and mobile terminals, etc.


The Barcode scanning SDK does NOT transfer data and images to Smart Engines, third-party services and/or third parties for manual or other processing and does NOT save or store them (the recognition process is performed in the local RAM memory of the device) and does NOT require internet access. Smart Code Engine fully complies with the requirements of the international law (GDPR, CCPA) with respect to personal data processing.


The Barcode scanning SDK turns your device into an intelligent barcode scanner that recognizes even damaged and inverted barcodes, as well as codes with deviations from the standard

Smart Code Engine SDK Advantages

Security and Compliance
Our barcode scanner SDK provides maximum security to our customers. Smart Code Engine fully complies with the GDPR and CCPA requirements regarding personal data. The SDK was audited by an independent firm and confirmed the impossibility of transmitting data to third-party services. Smart Code Engine is welcome to be inspected by your security auditor.

Precision and speed
With advanced AI recognition algorithms, a new generation of barcode scanning technology helps you to ensure the highest speed of workflow. Our innovative image processing pipeline is based both on computer vision algorithms and compact neural network architectures and it does not need an operator to focus on the code during the recognition and select accurate camera angles. The SDK will scan even in tough conditions. We have invented a system that makes business much easier.

Reliability and robustness
Our algorithms automatically locate, capture, and decode a barcode with high speed, even in low light. It can scan every challenging barcode, including inverted and damaged ones. Smart Code Engine supports QR Code, PDF417, DataMatrix, AZTEC, CODABAR, CODE_39, CODE_93, CODE_128, EAN_8, EAN_13, ITF, UPC_A, UPC_E and more.

How barcode scanning works

How barcode scanning works

Once you’ve installed the Smart Code Engine SDK App (formerly Smart BarcodeReader) your smartphone becomes a barcode scanner. It can scan 1D and 2D barcodes. Just point your smartphone at the barcode.


Smart Code Engine decodes PDF417 on AAMVA-compliant US driver’s licenses. The state-of-the-art solution seamlessly extracts the data and parses it into a human-readable format.


The SDK can be integrated into applications using Objective-C, Swift, C, C++, Java, C#, PHP, and Python interfaces for iOS, Android, Linux, Windows, macOS, Solaris, and more. The wrappers for React Native and Flutter are also available for mobile app developers for easy embedding.
