2D barcode design for mobile phone applications

This project investigates the design of a novel colour 2D barcode optimised for camera-enabled mobile phone platforms. The integration of 2D barcode technology and camera phone technology provides general users with interesting and convenient applications. Examples of such applications include web link, online shopping and e-ticketing.

Captured on a camera phone, the information encoded in the format of a 2D barcode is decoded and used to perform certain applications. Considering that mobile phones have become a part of many daily lives and are always within reach, people can use such mobile applications according to their convenience.

This research also aims to establish a standard 2D barcode, on which the third party software vendors and manufactures can develop new functions and applications. This will, in turn, provide general users with more available mobile applications.
