Automate stock move with location barcodes

All, I am trying to determine the best way to automate stock moves of product around my warehouse. My idea goes as follows:

I would have like for the warehouse operators to be able to select a product lot by scaning a LOT barcode,

The user would then be prompted to enter the product quantity they would like to move  >  then they would have to scan a LOCATION barcode (source)

Finally once they have moved their product to a new location within the warehouse, they would scan the destination LOCATION barcode (destination).

Now the tricky part here is that I would like to be able to do this with fixed barcode scanners mounted on pallet jacks (machines that operators use to move pallets around), so that the operators will not have to get on and off the pallet jacks each time they move product.

I have all of the bar coding, however I need the ability to map certain hardware devices (barcode scanners) to particular functions (stock move) within Odoo. If possible I would like to avoid these operators having to interact with the odoo interface in order to make these types of transactions

If anybody has any experience with this sort of thing please let me know I would be very interested in how you accomplished the goal.

Thank you in advanced.
