Paper Abstract

The IBM 3687 Supermarket Scanner is designed to read the familiar UPC bar code appearing on nearly all grocery and many non-grocery items. In the past six years there have been a number of articles explaining the basic concepts involved in reading the UPC code with the scanner. The interested reader is referred to the reference articles (1, 2, 3, 4).
