So far, about 15 or 20 consumer product marketers are involved in projects to develop 2-D bar codes
for their brands.
Feedback from customers about UDR's involvement in the mobile market has shown that the QR 2-D bar code
has also been extremely positive, Taraborelli said.
Drivers carry hand-held terminals used to scan the 2-D bar code
on each container at pickup.
For example, RF tags are not inherently better than 2-D bar codes
In fact, 2-D bar codes
such as PDF417, MaxiCode, and Data Matrix are examples of new technology very much in tune with the times.
In fact, current military identification cards include not only 2-D bar codes
and memory buttons but magnetic stripe, each adding to the usefulness of the card.
However, 2-D bar codes
pack all of the information from that database onto a high-density printed symbol that travels with the inventory.
Now, you can accurately verify someone's identity by simply swiping the person's magnetic-stripe driver's license, or scanning the license's 2-D bar code
onto a compact ICE card terminal equipped with IDLogix -- and also conduct traditional credit/debit, check, EBT and loyalty card transactions if desired.
This is the first time that a 2-D bar code
will be used to sort such large volumes of packages-150,000 an hour by 1997.
A 2-D bar code
may contain a full page of data, enough to encode all the information related to a document.
