Scanner access in a Native Application

Hi All,

 

I am developing a Native Android application for the MC40 device and I was wondering if it was possible to get access to the Scanner hardware via the Java code.

 

I can access the camera (Rear Facing) and implement a scanner based on the captured images from there, however so far I have not been able to access the built-in scanner.

 

Any advice would be appreciated
