Two Messages out of One 2D Matrix Bar Code


Abstract

With the proposed principle of two-dimensional matrix bar code design based on masks, the whole surface of a 2D bar code is used for creating graphic patterns. Masks are a method of overlaying certain information with complete preservation of encoded information. In order to ensure suitable mask performance, it is essential to create a set of masks (mask folder) which are similar to each other. This ultimately allows additional error correction on the whole code level which is proven mathematically through an academic example of a QR code with a matrix of size 9 ? 9. In order to create a mask folder, this article will investigate parameters based on Weber’s law. With the parameters founded in the research, this principle shows how QR codes, or any other 2D bar code, can be designed to display two different messages. This ultimately enables a better description of a 2D bar code, which will improve users’ visual recognition of 2D bar code purpose, and therefore users’ greater enjoyment and involvement.
