Who Uses QR Codes?
Today QR Codes have many uses,
including transport ticketing,
entertainment, product labeling,
and marketing. In short, you can
use a QR code in virtually any
situation where you want to send
people to a specific website. It
is now becoming more common for
people to use QR Codes when
looking at a product in-store.
They often go in-store to look
at the physical product and then
use their smartphones to compare
prices. Depending on how
technological the retailer is,
they can scan QR codes to find
additional information about the
products that interest them..

Frequently Asked Questions About QR
What is the
origin and development process of QR Code?
QR Code was
invented in 1994 by a team led by Masahiro Harada of the
Japanese company Denso Wave, based on its original use for
marking car parts. It is a two-dimensional matrix barcode that
can be used for a variety of purposes.
encoding and decoding rules of QR Code were formulated into
multiple international standards, such as AIM International, JIS
X 0510 and ISO/IEC 18004:2015.
The reason why QR
Code has to develop multiple standards is to adapt to different
application scenarios and needs, such as data encoding method,
symbol format, error correction rules, decoding algorithm, etc.
Different standards may have different advantages and
limitations, such as scanning speed, capacity, compatibility,
etc. The development of multiple standards will also help the
internationalization and popularization of QR Code, allowing
more people to use it.
What is the
difference between QR code and 1D barcode?
mainly lies in the encoding method and information capacity.
QR codes use a
two-dimensional square matrix, which can store more information
and represent more data types.
barcodes use one-dimensional lines, can only store a small
amount of information, and can only represent numbers or
There are other
differences between QR codes and one-dimensional barcodes, such
as scanning speed, error correction capabilities, compatibility,
situations, why should QR Code be used instead of
It is because QR
Code has the following advantages:
QR Code can store
more information because it uses a two-dimensional square matrix
instead of one-dimensional lines. One-dimensional barcodes
usually only store a few dozen characters, while QR Codes can
store thousands of characters.
QR Code can
represent more data types, such as numbers, letters, binary,
Chinese characters, etc. One-dimensional barcodes usually can
only represent numbers or letters.
QR Code can be
scanned and recognized faster because it has four positioning
marks and can be scanned from any angle. One-dimensional
barcodes usually need to be scanned from a specific direction.
QR Code is more
resistant to damage and interference because it has error
correction capabilities that can recover partially lost or
obscured data. One-dimensional barcodes generally do not have
Why are QR codes
faster to scan?
The reason why QR
codes scan faster is that they can express information in both
the horizontal and vertical directions, while one-dimensional
codes can only express information in the horizontal direction.
QR codes also
have some special geometric patterns, such as positioning
patterns, alignment patterns and correction patterns, which can
help the scanner quickly identify the position and direction of
the QR code.
QR codes also
have certain error correction capabilities. Even if part of the
QR code is blocked or damaged, the data can still be recovered.
Will QR codes
replace one-dimensional barcodes?
QR codes and
one-dimensional barcodes are two different encoding methods,
each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
barcodes can only express information in the horizontal
direction, while 2D codes can express information in both
horizontal and vertical directions.
codes can only hold 30 characters, while two-dimensional codes
have a large information capacity, with a maximum data capacity
of 1850 characters.
QR codes can
directly store product information without connecting to another
The large size of
one-dimensional code and low space utilization determines the
low information capacity, while the two-dimensional code is
relatively small in size (high space utilization) and has the
ability to resist damage.
correction rates of QR codes are divided into four levels: L, M,
Q, and H from low to high. The maximum error correction rates of
each level are 7%, 15%, 25%, and 30% respectively, while the

barcodes have many advantages that one-dimensional barcodes
cannot compare with. Although it is still in its infancy, driven
by the constantly improving market economy and rapidly
developing information technology, coupled with its unique
characteristics, two-dimensional barcodes , countries' demand
for the new technology of two-dimensional barcodes is increasing
day by day.
Especially in the
past two years, two-dimensional barcodes have begun to be
applied in many industries, and many far-sighted manufacturers
have also begun to get involved in the field of two-dimensional
other automatic identification technologies, 2D barcodes have
With the development of science and information technology,
automatic identification technology is becoming more and more
popular. The key points of automatic identification technology
are mainly in improving data quality and input speed and
eliminating human interference. Among them, automatic
identification technologies that perform well include barcodes,
magnetic cards, IC cards and radio frequency identification.
However, two-dimensional barcodes have obvious advantages in
terms of information carrier cost, information volume,
confidentiality, anti-pollution and anti-interference, and
standardization, and have good prospects for promotion and
First of all, in
the application field of automatic identification technology,
two-dimensional barcodes have many advantages:
1) The production
cost of forms and documents using two-dimensional barcodes is
barcodes can be printed using common inkjet printers, laser
printers, and thermal transfer printers, and can be printed on
paper, cards, or PVC cards. Therefore, compared with other
automatic identification technologies, it is low in cost and has
good practical value.
2) Forms and
documents using two-dimensional barcodes have good fault
tolerance and long service life.
Various forms and
documents may be damaged and contaminated to varying degrees
during use. Therefore, higher requirements are placed on their
service life and machine reading capabilities. The 2D barcode
uses an error correction algorithm and has strong error
correction capabilities. Even after part of it is damaged, it
can still be read by a machine through error correction.
dependence on the main system and network, thereby reducing
costs and improving reliability.
two-dimensional barcode is a portable data file that can carry a
large amount of information itself and does not need to be
connected to an external database. Therefore, when calculator
and database support are not available, the two-dimensional
barcode can also be read through a portable data terminal.
information in the barcode, thereby reducing dependence on the
main system and network, reducing usage costs and improving
machine-readable function of documents is realized.
machine-readability and anti-counterfeiting capabilities of
documents are the hallmarks of the new generation of documents.
Two-dimensional barcodes can encode important information such
as the holder's name, certificate number, blood type, gender,
etc., and can be automatically read by machines, solving the
problem of automatic entry of document data information.
5) Improved the
anti-counterfeiting capabilities of documents.
barcodes have good anti-counterfeiting capabilities. Using
two-dimensional barcodes on documents can improve the
anti-counterfeiting capabilities of documents by mathematically
encrypting the data information represented by the
two-dimensional barcodes. Currently, mathematical encryption
technology is already a very advanced and mature technology in
the world. Therefore, the anti-counterfeiting ability of the
document can be greatly increased.
high technology of two-dimensional barcode has great promotion
and application value.
Secondly, 2D barcodes have market space.
As a new barcode
technology, 2D barcode has been widely used in fields such as
national defense, medical care, commerce, finance, and logistics
management. Because two-dimensional barcodes have large
information capacity, good confidentiality and
anti-counterfeiting properties, and low cost, they have very
broad application prospects. It is foreseeable that
two-dimensional barcode technology will bring considerable
social and economic benefits to the development of the
information industry and modern economic construction.
products in the pharmaceutical and electronic fields. Medical
and electronic products are small and do not have enough space
to accommodate traditional barcodes. The high density of 2D
barcodes allows automatic identification of these products. For
example, some electronic chips are expensive and must be
tracked. In addition, the use of two-dimensional barcodes for
mandatory controlled drugs in Western countries is also
imperative in other countries, so the above technology will
become increasingly important.
barcodes have now entered the stage of systematic application in
Western developed countries. Their application fields and usage
methods have largely guided the development direction of the
world's two-dimensional barcodes. Manufacturers and dealers of
2D barcode related equipment want to enter a wide range of
fields, involving a wide range of areas and closely related to
people's daily work and life, such as railway transportation, ID
cards, household appliances and public utilities. This is almost
Involving every family and every person, this indicates that 2D
barcodes will enter our lives and penetrate into our lives.
In recent years,
information technology and automated management have developed
rapidly. Driven by the information industry and commercial
automated management, two-dimensional barcode technology, one of
the important means of automatic collection of information data,
has been rapidly promoted and applied. Since 1998, sales of
two-dimensional barcode reading equipment have grown
exponentially, and the development momentum is satisfactory.
There is no doubt that information technology and modern
management are global development trends. As an important part
of information technology, two-dimensional barcodes have broad
room for development with the development of information
technology and modern management, the improvement of people's
awareness and deepening of understanding, and the increase in
people's anti-counterfeiting requirements for products and

What is the difference between EAN-13 barcode and UPC-A barcode?
The EAN-13 barcode has one more country/region code than the UPC-A barcode. In fact, the UPC-A barcode can be regarded as a special case of the EAN-13 barcode, which is the EAN-13 barcode with the first digit set to 0.
The EAN-13 barcode is developed by the International Article Numbering Center and is universally accepted. The code length is 13 digits, and the first two digits represent the country or region code.
UPC-A barcode is produced by the United States Uniform Code Committee and is mainly used in the United States and Canada. The code length is 12 digits, and the first digit indicates the numeric system code.
EAN-13 barcode and UPC-A barcode have the same structure and verification method, and similar appearance.
EAN-13 barcode is a superset of UPC-A barcode and can be compatible with UPC-A barcode.
If I have a UPC code, do I still need to apply for an EAN?
No need. Both UPC and EAN can identify goods. Although the former originated in the United States, it is part of the global GS1 system, so if you register UPC under the GS1 organization, it can be used globally. If you need to print a 13-digit EAN barcode, you can add the number 0 in front of the UPC code.
UPC-A barcodes can be converted to EAN-13 barcodes by prepending 0. For example, the UPC-A barcode  corresponds to the EAN-13 barcode . Doing this ensures Compatibility with UPC-A barcodes.
About Code-128 barcode
Code-128 barcode was developed by COMPUTER IDENTICS in 1981. It is a variable-length, continuous alphanumeric barcode.
Code-128 barcode consists of a blank area, a start mark, a data area, a check character and a terminator. It has three subsets, namely A, B and C, which can represent different character sets. It can also be used to achieve multi-level encoding through the selection of starting characters, code set characters, and conversion characters.
It can encode all 128 ASCII characters, including numbers, letters, symbols and control characters, so it can represent all characters on the computer keyboard.
It can achieve high-density and efficient data representation through multi-level encoding, and can be used for automatic identification in any management system.
It is compatible with the EAN/UCC system and is used to represent the information of the storage and transportation unit or logistics unit of the commodity. In this case, it is called GS1-128.
Code-128 barcode standard was developed by Computer Identics Corporation [USA] in 1981. It can represent all 128 ASCII code characters and is suitable for convenient application on computers. The purpose of formulating this standard is to Improve barcode encoding efficiency and reliability.
Code128 is a high-density barcode. It uses three versions of character sets [A, B, C] and the selection of starting characters, code set characters, and conversion characters, according to different data Type and length, choose the most appropriate encoding method. This can reduce the length of the barcode and improve encoding efficiency. In addition, Code128 also uses check characters and terminators, which can increase the reliability of the barcode and prevent misreading or missed reading.
Code-128 barcode is widely used in internal management of enterprises, production processes, and logistics control systems. It has many application scenarios, mainly in industries such as transportation, logistics, clothing, food, pharmaceuticals, and medical equipment.
About EAN-13 barcode
EAN-13 is the abbreviation of European Article Number, a barcode protocol and standard used in supermarkets and other retail industries.
EAN-13 is established based on the UPC-A standard established by the United States. The EAN-13 barcode has one more country/region code than the UPC-A barcode in order to meet the needs of international applications. . The UPC-A barcode is a barcode symbol used to track goods in stores. It is only used in the United States and Canada. It was developed by the United States [Uniform Code Council] in 1973 and has been used since 1974. It It was the earliest barcode system used for product settlement in supermarkets.
