Barcodes for Mobile Devicesby Keng T Tan
Synopses & Reviews
From inventory management in stores to automotive part tracking in assembly plants, barcodes are one of the most prevalent automatic identification and data capture technologies. This book provides a complete introduction to barcodes for mobile devices, presenting the most relevant and up-to-date information previously unavailable elsewhere or difficult to obtain. The focus throughout is on recent developments and two-dimensional (2D) barcodes, including the research and development steps towards colour barcodes for mobile devices, helping readers to develop their own barcodes. The authors also provide design details for their own novel colour 2D barcode: the Mobile MultiColour Composite (MMCC) barcode, plus coverage of RFID technology and one-dimensional barcodes. This book is ideal for professional developers of barcodes for mobile devices who need the latest technical details and information on how to develop barcodes. It is also a useful reference for graduate students researching the field of barcode technology and mobile computing.
Book News Annotation:
This work describes the history and evolution of barcode technology for mobile devices and reviews the types of applications that have been developed in such areas as logistics in warehouses; manufacturing and industry; the healthcare sector; publishing; and point-of-sale systems in the retail, wholesale, and grocery industries. A range of barcode technologies, symbologies, and applications are described, with the emphasis on two-dimensional barcodes. Later, the authors discuss technologies that improve the robustness of barcode symbols and their encoding and decoding algorithms and then develop and evaluate their own novel color two-dimensional barcode.
