Why do I need WiFi for Barcode and Object Recognition?
Cyber Eyez uses services provided by Google for barcode lookup and object identification. Our barcode scanner is powered by Google shopping on the backend so it recognizes over 100 million products right out of the box! But to reach Google, we need WiFi. The Google Online Object Recognition Mode uses the Google Vision API to analyze the picture and identify the objects in it. Google sends the information back to Cyber Eyez and reads it back. As Google’s object recognition gets better, so does Cyber Eyez.
How do I access Barcode mode?
With your Cyber Eyez Gear VR on, swipe up or down until you hear “Changed to Barcode Mode” and see the tile labeled Barcode Mode on the screen. Barcode mode is one swipe down from Microsoft Online Text Reader and one swipe up from Google Online Object Recognition.
Practice rotate and capture in barcode mode
During this time, encourage the students to find objects near them with a barcode on it. Have them put the object at a comfortable distance in front of the device with their left hand and long tap on the swipe pad to take a picture when the barcode is in frame. If the barcode is recognized the result will be read back in a few seconds depending on the WiFi network speed.
How do I access Google Online Object Recognition mode?
With your Cyber Eyez Gear VR on, swipe up or down until you hear “Changed to Google Online Object Recognition Mode” and see the tile labeled Google Online Object Recognition Mode on the screen. Google Online Object Recognition Mode is one swipe down from Barcode mode and one swipe up from Color assistant.
Practice capture in Google Online Object Recognition mode
During this time, encourage the students to look around their environment at different objects, rooms and scenarios and take pictures. Hold objects close, take distance pictures, pictures inside, outside, as many varieties as you can.
10 minute questions and answer sessions at the end of the training to answer any of your Cyber Eyez barcode mode and Google online object recognition mode questions.
