When the standard comes, barcode comes to life

"look at the current state of WAPI Standard, you will understand how difficult it is for a standard of our country to go abroad. We have our own standard for two-dimensional barcode, and why not vigorously promote it in China?" An industry expert expressed the feelings of many people

the standard comes and the barcode comes alive

Shanxi angsheng Pharmaceutical Group pioneered the drug sales barcode, referred to as "one code link" management system. The barcode includes the name of the product, the manufacturer's price, the seller's sales date and other information


on May 30, 2006, two electronic industry standards of two-dimensional bar code system, compact matrix code and lattice matrix code, were officially implemented. This means that the two-dimensional bar code with China's independent intellectual property rights has finally gained legal status, which will be of great significance to improve the management level of various industries. However, relevant experts also pointed out that there is still a way to go to market the two-dimensional bar code

from one-dimensional bar code to two-dimensional bar code, from paper bar code to special material bar code, until today, rfide rookies have recycled 200000 cartons, and biometric technology has developed. As a basic link in the information field, the information recognition industry has entered a promising fast lane in China

under the high speed, an accelerated technological change is brewing. If you pay a little attention, you will find that the traditional barcode standards and technologies widely used in various industries, which are well known to us, have begun to be gradually replaced by two-dimensional barcode. Open the newspaper, take out the certificate, open the cover... The new graphic bar code that appears frequently gives you every reason to believe that this two-dimensional bar code will one day be everywhere

on May 30, two electronic industry standards of two-dimensional bar code system, compact matrix code (hereinafter referred to as cm code) and lattice matrix code (hereinafter referred to as GM code), were officially implemented. The two-dimensional bar code with China's independent intellectual property rights has finally come to the fore, and the lively two-dimensional bar code industry has been more boiling since then. Everything is as Zhang Wei, chairman of Shenzhen Silicon Technology Co., Ltd., said: "the standard comes, the bar code is alive."

two dimensional bar code: new technology requires new standards

when some domestic industry standards are still blank, some foreign standards have taken advantage of the situation to seize the highland. However, when we comfortably "enjoy" the foreign standard meal, we have to face expensive bills. From VCDDVD to EVD, from MP3 to MP4, and then from digital TV to 3G, the standards are free at the initial stage of the market. However, as long as China forms an industrial scale, foreign companies will collect huge patent fees. This is an indisputable fact, and it is also the fate of two-dimensional bar code. For a long time, the common two-dimensional bar code standards in China have come from foreign technologies, such as PDF417 code in the United States and QR code in Japan. These "imported" two-dimensional barcodes are not specially designed and optimized for Chinese characters, and the coding efficiency of Chinese characters is low. The core technology of relevant reading equipment is almost in the hands of foreign manufacturers, and most of the products sold in China are agents or assembled products of foreign manufacturers, which not only has high production costs, but also has hidden dangers in information security

for domestic consumers, two-dimensional bar code may be a relatively new concept, because at present, one-dimensional bar code is the most widely used in China. This is because the one-dimensional bar code has a long history of application and a high degree of industrialization, so it has a strong incumbent advantage. However, one-dimensional codes can only store index information due to the limitation of information capacity. The advantage of two-dimensional bar code called "paper memory" is very obvious. Usually thousands of characters can be stored in a bar code symbol the size of a postmark. In addition to a substantial increase in capacity, two-dimensional bar code technology is low-cost and easy to make; High information density and large capacity; Strong anti-loss, anti-interference and error correction capabilities; Information anti-counterfeiting; Automatic information transmission and other functions are also highly respected by people in the industry. Unfortunately, with technology and no standards, the development of two-dimensional bar code in China has been struggling

generally speaking, the bar code standard system is thin, and there is a lack of two-dimensional bar codes with China's independent intellectual property rights. In its "barcode promotion project", China article coding center has highlighted the development policy of "developing a new two-dimensional barcode system suitable for China's national conditions, developing barcode reading equipment with independent intellectual property rights, and accelerating the development of China's automatic identification technology industry"

some powerful bar code leading enterprises responded one after another. After years of efforts, GM code and cm code developed by Shenzhen Sigan Technology Co., Ltd. came into being, filling the gap in the industry. In addition, the relevant competent departments are also formulating the "management measures for digital identification codes", including two-dimensional bar codes, to regulate the application, registration and coding of digital identification codes from the source. All these will vigorously promote the development of China's two-dimensional bar code industry. Cm/gm code and other two-dimensional bar codes with China's independent intellectual property rights have broken the standard barriers of QR in Japan and PDF417 in the United States, and also helped some enterprises get rid of the monopoly of foreign two-dimensional bar code technology. Most importantly, the Chinese people have their own bar code, which ensures China's profit space in the development of bar code industry, avoids the risks posed by foreign standards and patents, and avoids the outflow of huge patent standard fees

standard application: change the "hollowing out" of information technology.

after the introduction of the compact matrix code and lattice matrix code standards, Zhang Wei, chairman of Shenzhen Silicon Technology Co., Ltd., who used polystyrene foam as thermal insulation material, was relieved of the heavy burden and deeply felt that it was important, because standards could play the greatest role only if they were fully connected with the market. According to the statistics of silicon technology, at present, all Nokia uses two-dimensional bar codes to facilitate production control, logistics management, sales management and after-sales service management; The US postal service of the United States postal service has begun to use two-dimensional bar codes as electronic stamps to replace ordinary stamps; In the future, two-dimensional bar code may replace one-dimensional bar code, popularize every commodity and enter everyone's daily life, making our life more relaxed and convenient

it is clearly mentioned in the standard that the two-dimensional bar code is the carrier of information identification, and the two-dimensional bar code technology is widely used in the fields of commodity production, circulation and sales management, government enterprise information network construction and law enforcement. Foreign developed countries have applied it to transportation, public security, taxation, customs, banking, logistics, national defense, civil goods and other fields. For example, countries such as the United States and Canada have applied two-dimensional bar code technology in the annual inspection of driver's license, vehicle customs declaration and the assembly of automotive electronic products

According to the research and application status of two-dimensional bar code technology in China, the standard stipulates that its symbol definition, agreed data coding and symbol representation, symbol printing, symbol quality, decoding process, decoding algorithm and data transmission must be professional and practical. It is worth mentioning that the two standards are specific to each other. Cm code is applicable to logistics and GM code is applicable to tickets

although it is only the initial stage of standard implementation, it can be predicted that once the two-dimensional bar code standard with independent intellectual property rights in China is applied on a large scale, it will have a far-reaching impact on the development of China's economy, the improvement of people's living standards, the promotion of social service informatization, the change of the "hollowing out" situation of information technology, etc. With China's independent intellectual property rights and technical standards, the two-dimensional bar code, through strong support and promotion, can revitalize China's information identification industry and calmly respond to international challenges; While it is conducive to safeguarding national interests and information security, it will create new economic growth points in various regions and industries, which will play a vital role in building new industrial chain clusters, forming new large-scale pillar industries, and stimulating the development of the entire national economy. It can be optimistically expected that the effects of high-tech achievements and their products driven by technological innovation will be recognized by the society and will produce greater economic and social benefits on the basis of wide application

if we have our own standards, but can not get practical and large-scale application, it is a waste, and it is not conducive to gradually changing the "hollowing out" status of domestic information technology. Han Jun, deputy director of the Department of science and technology of the Ministry of information industry, made a strong appeal to promote the large-scale application of the standard as soon as possible at the two-dimensional bar code standard publicity meeting. Some enterprises are also eager to devote themselves to the embrace of domestic standards

industry experts agree that we should learn from the experience of Japan and South Korea in the application of standards. Although the two-dimensional code system such as PDF417 in the United States has been widely used and has become an international standard, Japan still uses its own QR code, while South Korea uses its own "magic button". By doing so, they not only protect their own economic interests, but also make their bar code industry better than the blue, far surpassing the United States in the popularization of two-dimensional bar codes

on June 29, 2006, in Tokyo, Japan, a computer was reading the information of a two-dimensional bar code station on a piece of chocolate

The battery used in the laboratory is graphene battery
