What We Do

Vision Smarts develops and licenses leading-edge image and video analysis software.
Our flagship product, the VSBarcodeReader SDK, reads UPC, EAN and many other barcodes
using the built-in camera of all iPhone, iPad, and Android models.

Back in 2009, our iPhone app pic2shop® dispelled the myth that reading regular UPC barcodes with the fixed focus iPhone camera was impossible. A unique combination of mathematical tools and proprietary image processing algorithms made this achievement possible. Since then, pic2shop has been used by millions of shoppers worldwide. Pic2shop is available for iOS and Android.

Our Mission

We believe visual search is the most effective way to access and interact with information on smartphones. Not just because the screen is small or because the keyboard is inconvenient, but because people now use their phones in situations and for purposes that are incredibly more varied than ever before. Together with geolocation and speech recognition, image analysis is becoming a staple of mobile computing. Barcode scanning is a great example, but only the beginning. Our goal is to help you build apps that recognize shapes, 3-dimensional objects, people's actions and much more.
