WHAT'S THE MEANING?

QR code is an abbreviation that stands for Quick Response code. It is a machine-readable type of a 2-dimensional matrix barcode.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that QR codes where first used as a tool for manufacturing cars? It started way back in 1994, when Denso Wave, a subsidiary of Toyota, designed the enhanced barcode. They created it to help track the status of vehicles and parts in the manufacturing phase. Thus, got its name from its high-speed encoding rate feature. After some time, Denso Wave's innovation spurred out more demand for barcodes. It included ones that had more variations and could store more data.

And with smartphones adapting advanced technology today, reading the code is easy. The rise of QR scanners for Android, as well as for iOS, compensates the said increase in demand. In line with that, downloading and installing some apps for mobile phones becomes easy. Why? Modern developers are using QR codes instead of links. You only need to have a barcode scanner app on your device and voila! In an instant, you already have the application installed! As you can see, what started as a utility for speeding up the process manufacturing vehicles and its parts is now used widely worldwide.
