How to Read Barcodes from Images with Different Textures

In some scenes, the background of images may appear textured, such as a patterned background, screen stripes, etc. As shown below, the barcode background has an odd texture due to the computer screen it is being displayed on.

This may extend the barcode localization time or even lead to localization errors. The texture detection feature of DBR works on images with textured backgrounds. The following two images demonstrate the binarized images used for localization without and with texture detection enabled:

We can configure one or more TextureDetectionModes in PublicRuntimeSettings.furtherModes.textureDetectionModes to enable texture detection feature.
