Mercedes-Benz Adds Quick Response QR Codes to Help Save Car Crash Victims

Posted May 31, 2013

When every second counts: with a small yet effective innovation, Mercedes-Benz wants to make the rescue of accident victims safer and swifter. Using a QR code, which can be read by smartphones and tablets, placed on Mercedes-Benz cars, will provide a rescue map for every vehicle type, which can be shown on the device’s display. This chart contains all the information necessary to rescue any injured occupants quickly.

This Mercedes-Benz innovation makes use of the rescue sheets developed by the ADAC, the German Automobile Association, and which are already provided by all automakers for every one of their vehicle models. The sheets show firefighters, police and paramedics the design details they need to know in order to use the rescue shears effectively, for example. The rescue sheet, specific for each vehicle type, also informs about the location of the airbags, the battery, the tanks, electric cables, high-pressure cylinders and other components – in the case of hybrid models the location of the additional batteries and high-voltage cables, too. This information can save lives, because in an emergency every action counts and every second is precious.

Evolution of the Barcode

Posted March 26, 2013

Even though Barcodes are in use all around us everyday, do we really know how they work or came to be developed? Since they are such a valuable and essential technology, we often don’t think about them because they work so well! Manufacturers like Intermec, provide a wide range of scanning options from the basic handheld SG10T to rugged mobile computers like  the 70 Series. With the right scanner, any application can become more efficient and accurate.

This infographic is a simple and easy guide to the basic history and evolution of the mighty barcode.

The applications you can put QR Codes to use may range from coupons to advertising campaigns but this has got to be one of the more unique applications.

The New Zealand brewing company Yeastie Boys incorporate several QR Codes on the labeling of their Digital IPA.  These codes lead customers to various web pages including Facebook and Twitter accounts but one of the QR Codes lead to the full recipe of the beer, which essentially makes Digital IPA the world’s first open source beer!

Honeywell’s New Area-Imaging Scanner the Voyager 1400g

Posted July 3, 2012

Honeywell’s new upgrade-able imaging scanner provides the best of all worlds to businesses looking to implement 2D bar codes.

2D bar codes are becoming increasingly popular across a wide range of industries for a number of reasons. Some enterprises have a desire to capture large amounts of data, despite space constraints, while others are being required to read 2D bar codes due to government regulations or supplier mandates. Also, an even larger group of enterprises simply have the desire to leverage emerging trends, today or in the future, without purchasing additional scanning hardware. Built on the platform of Honeywell’s world-renowned Voyager series of linear scanners, the Voyager 1400g delivers omnidirectional linear bar code reading, plus the ability to affordably upgrade the device to enable 2D bar code scanning as scanning needs evolve.

The Voyager 1400g will soon be available and you can contact us for more details and ordering.
