We propse a novel corner detection algorithm for locating 2D Data Matrix barcode in an image. The proposed method accumulates weight for each cross point defined by every combination of edge points in the image, and detects the corner point of the barcode L-pattern by determining the location of the highest accumulated weight. By designing the weight considering the connectivity of two lines around the cross point, we were able to detect the corner of L-pattern even for the cases that the lines of L-patterns are short. In the experiments, the proposed method showed improved performance compared with the conventional Hough transform based method in terms of detectability and computation time.
