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..

FAQ About QR Code
What is the
historical origin of QR Code? Who sets the standard of QR Code?
The QR Code was
invented in 1994 by a team led by Masahiro Harada of the
Japanese company Denso Wave based on the original marking
technology of car parts. It is a two-dimensional matrix barcode
that can be used for many 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, etc.
Why does QR Code
need to formulate multiple standards?
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 formulation of multiple standards is also conducive to
the internationalization and popularization of QR Code, so that
more people can use it.
Why use QR Code
instead of 1D barcode in some occasions?
The reason for
using QR Code instead of one-dimensional barcode is that 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 can
usually store only a few dozen characters, while QR Code can
store thousands of characters.
QR Code can
represent more data types, such as numbers, letters, binary,
Chinese characters, etc. One-dimensional barcodes can usually
only represent numbers or letters.
QR Code can be
scanned and recognized faster because it has four orientation
marks and can be scanned from any angle. 1D barcodes usually
need to be scanned from a specific orientation.
QR Code is more
resistant to damage and interference because it has error
correction features that allow partial recovery of lost or
obfuscated data. 1D barcodes generally do not have such
What is the
difference between a QR code and a 1D barcode?
between a two-dimensional code and a one-dimensional barcode
mainly lies in the encoding method and information capacity. The
QR code uses a two-dimensional square matrix, which can store
more information and represent more data types. One-dimensional
barcodes use one-dimensional lines, can only store a small
amount of information, and can only represent numbers or
letters. There are other differences between QR codes and 1D
barcodes, such as scanning speed, error correction capabilities,
Why are QR codes
faster to scan?
The reason why
the scanning speed of the QR code is faster is that it can
express information in the horizontal and vertical directions,
while the one-dimensional code 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. The
two-dimensional code also has certain error correction
capabilities, even if part of the two-dimensional code is
blocked or damaged, the data can be recovered.
What are the
advantages and disadvantages of QR Code?
More data can be
stored, including text, addresses, phone numbers, URLs, videos,
and content can be customized to increase brand recognition and

Is QR Code the
only type of two-dimensional barcode?
No, QR Code is
not the only type of two-dimensional barcode. According to the
principle, two-dimensional codes can be divided into two
categories: matrix type and stacked type.
Common types of
QR codes include: Data Matrix, MaxiCode, Aztec, QR Code, PDF417,
Vericode, Ultracode, Code 49, Code 16K, etc. They have different
applications in different fields.

How many types of
QR Codes are there?
The types of QR
Code can be divided from different perspectives, such as:
Encoding mode: QR
Code can use four standard encoding modes to store data, which
are (i) numeric, (ii) alphanumeric, (iii) byte or binary, and
(iv) Chinese characters.
QR Code has 40 version numbers, and each version number
corresponds to a different number of data modules. Data modules
are the black and white squares that make up the QR Code. The
higher the version number, the more data modules there are and
the more data can be stored.
Model: QR Code
has two models, namely Model 1 and Model 2. Model 1 is the
original QR Code. The largest version number is 14 (73 x 73
modules) and can store up to 1,167 numbers. Model 2 is an
improvement on Model 1. The maximum version number is 40 (177 x
177 modules) and can store up to 7,089 numbers.
Is VCard a QR
Code? What's the difference between them?
VCard and QR Code
are not the same thing, they have some differences. VCard is a
file format that can save contact information. QR Code is a
two-dimensional code that can store or link to different types
of data, such as URLs, text, images, etc. You can use VCard as a
data type of QR Code and obtain or share VCard by scanning QR
Why does mobile
payment use QR Code?
The reasons for
using QR Code for mobile payment are as follows:
QR Code can quickly and easily transmit payment information
without entering a card number or password.
QR Code can reduce the risks of contact payments and improve
payment security and hygiene.

countries that use QR Code for mobile payments, including China,
India, Vietnam, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand,
Italy, France, Spain, Germany, the United States, Canada,
Brazil, Australia, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
other QR codes, what are the advantages of QR Code? Why can it
become the most widely used?
QR Code can store
more information, such as website addresses, phone numbers,
text, etc. Its advantages are fast scanning, high error
tolerance, automatic error correction, customized appearance,
and the ability to generate dynamic and static QR codes.
between QR Code and other QR codes mainly lies in the encoding
method and capacity. QR Code uses four standardized encoding
modes: numeric, alphanumeric, byte or binary, and Chinese
characters. QR Code can store up to 7089 numbers or 2953 bytes.
QR Code has become the most widely used two-dimensional barcode
because of its flexibility and practicality.
What will be the
future development of QR Code barcodes?
QR Code is a
two-dimensional code. Like Data Matrix and other two-dimensional
codes, it has broad application prospects.
two-dimensional barcode developed on the basis of the
one-dimensional barcode has advantages that are incomparable to
the one-dimensional barcode. As a portable data file, although
it is still in its infancy, it is developing rapidly with the
continuous improvement of the market economy and the rapid
development of information technology. Driven by technology and
coupled with the unique characteristics of 2D barcodes,
countries have an increasing demand for the new technology of 2D
barcodes. Especially in the past two years, 2D barcodes have
begun to be applied in many industries. Some far-sighted
manufacturers have also begun to get involved in the field of 2D
barcodes, making the promotion and application of 2D barcode
technology an attractive prospect.
other automatic identification technologies, 2D barcodes have
With the development of science and information technology,
there are more and more types of automatic identification
technologies. The development of automatic identification
technology is mainly reflected in the improvement of data
quality and input speed and the elimination of human
interference. Among them, barcodes, magnetic cards, IC cards and
radio frequency identification are more prominent. 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 application.
2D barcodes have
using two-dimensional barcodes are low-cost and have good
Two-dimensional 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.
using two-dimensional barcodes have good fault tolerance and
long service life.
may be damaged and contaminated to varying degrees during use.
Therefore, higher requirements are placed on the service life
and machine reading capabilities of the documents. 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
The 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
the machine-readable function of documents
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.
The 2D barcode market has unlimited 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.
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.
It is worth
mentioning here that some dealers have proposed that the focus
of future development should first be on 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
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
