You can receive the information you want just by holding up your smartphone.
Make smart payments without using cash.
Is this convenient?
For many people, it’s already part of everyday life.
The QR Code was developed 25 years ago for production management.
We further expanded its uses beyond the factory and, as it continues to evolve, the QR Code is helping to provide positive and enjoyable living with peace of mind.
Believing in the limitless possibilities of this small matrix, our challenge still continues.
With the popularization of smartphones in recent years, opportunities to use QR Codes in everyday life for mobile tickets, cashless payments and other reasons have increased dramatically.
The origin of its name is “Quick Response.”
As the name suggests, it is a two-dimensional code developed with an emphasis on high-speed reading and high-speed processing.
Compared to barcodes, which can only handle about 20 characters, a QR Code can store about 350 times the amount of information.
It also supports Japanese characters.
QR Codes can immediately be read from any direction.
A key feature is the “cut out symbol” that appears in three corners.
QR Codes are equipped with an “error correction function” that restores data even if there is dirt or damage.
So even in harsh factory environments, the codes can still be read.
