Not to be confused with Quadratic residue code.

QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside the industry due to its fast readability and large storage capacity compared to standard UPC barcodes. The code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of four standardized kinds (“modes”) of data (numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary, Kanji), or through supported extensions, virtually any kind of data.[1]

Contents

Invention

Invented in Japan by the Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994 to track vehicles during the manufacturing process, the QR Code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes.[2] It was designed to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.[3]

Unlike the old bar code that was designed to be mechanically scanned by a narrow beam of light, the QR code is detected as a 2-dimensional digital image by a semiconductor image sensor and is then digitally analyzed by a programmed processor. The processor locates the three distinctive squares at the corners of the image, and normalizes image size, orientation, and angle of viewing. The small dots are then converted to binary numbers and validity checked with an error-correcting code.

Standards

Structure of a QR code, highlighting functional elements

There are several standards in documents covering the physical encoding of QR Codes:[4]

At the application layer, there is some variation between most of the implementations. Japan’s NTT DoCoMo has established de facto standards for the encoding of URLs, contact information, and several other data types.[6] The open-source “ZXing” project maintains a list of QR Code data types.[7]

Uses

Formerly confined to industrial uses, they have in recent years become common in consumer advertising and packaging, because the dissemination of smartphones“has put a barcode reader in everyone’s pocket” for the first time. As a result, the QR code has become a focus of advertising strategy, since it provides quick and effortless access to the brand’s website.[8][9] Beyond mere convenience to the consumer, the importance of this capability is that it increases the conversion rate (that is, increase the chance that contact with the advertisement will convert to a sale), by coaxing qualified prospects further down the conversion funnel without any delay or effort, bringing the viewer to the advertiser’s site immediately, where a longer and more targeted sales pitch may continue. Although initially used to track parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR Codes are now (as of 2012) used over a much wider range of applications, including commercial tracking, entertainment and transport ticketing, product/loyalty marketing (examples: mobile couponing where a company’s discounted and percent discount can be captured using a QR Code decoder which is a mobile app, or storing a company’s information such as address and related information alongside its alpha-numeric text data as can be seen in Yellow Pages directory), and in-store product labelling. It can also be used in storing personal information for use by government. An example of this is Philippines National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) where NBI clearances now come with a QR Code. Many of these applications target mobile-phone users (via mobile tagging). Users may receive text, add a vCard contact to their device, open a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), or compose an e-mail or text message after scanning QR Codes. They can generate and print their own QR Codes for others to scan and use by visiting one of several pay or free QR Code-generating sites or apps. Google has a popular API to generate QR Codes,[10] and apps for scanning QR Codes can be found on nearly all smartphone devices.[11]

QR Codes storing addresses and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) may appear in magazines, on signs, on buses, on business cards, or on almost any object about which users might need information. Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application can scan the image of the QR Code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network, or open a web page in the telephone’s browser. This act of linking from physical world objects is termedhardlinking or object hyperlinking. QR Codes may also be linked to a location to track where a code has been scanned. Either the application that scans the QR Code retrieves the geo information by using GPS and cell tower triangulation (aGPS) or the URL encoded in the QR Code itself is associated with a location.[12]

QR codes have been used and printed on Chinese train tickets since late 2009.

Use in mobile operating systems

QR Codes can be used in Google’s mobile Android operating system via both their own Google Goggles application or 3rd party barcode scanners like ZXing. The browser supports URI redirection, which allows QR Codes to sendmetadata to existing applications on the device. Nokia’s Symbian operating system features a barcode scanner which can read QR Codes,[13] while mbarcode[14] is a QR Code reader for the Maemo operating system. In the Apple iOS, a QR Code reader is not natively included, but more than fifty paid and free apps are available with both scanning capabilities and hard-linking to URI. With BlackBerry devices, the App World application can natively scan QR Codes and load any recognized Web URLs on the device’s Web browser. Windows Phone 7.5 is able to scan QR Codes through the Bing search app.

URLs

URLs aided marketing conversion rates even in the pre-smartphone era, but during those years faced several limitations: the ad viewer usually had to type the URL, and often did not have a web browser in front of them at the moment they viewed the ad. The chances were high that they would forget to visit the site later, not bother to type a URL, or forget what URL to type. Friendly URLs decreased these risks but did not eliminate them. Some of these disadvantages to URL conversion rates are fading away now that smartphones are putting web access and voice recognition in constant reach. Thus an advert viewer need only reach for their phone and speak the URL, at the moment of ad contact, rather than remember to type it into a PC later.

USA

In the USA, QR Code usage is expanding.[15] During the month of June 2011, according to one study, 14 million mobile users scanned a QR Code or a barcode. Some 58% of those users scanned a QR or bar code from their home, while 39% scanned from retail stores; 53% of the 14 million users were men between the ages of 18 and 34.[16] QR Codes are also being tested for “virtual store” formats, particularly in South Korea[17]and Argentina.[18]

Design

Storage

The amount of data that can be stored in the QR Code symbol depends on the datatype (mode, or input character set), version (1,…,40, indicating the overall dimensions of the symbol), and error correction level (L[ow], M[edium], Q[uality], H[igh]). The maximum storage capacities occur for 40-L symbols (version 40, error correction level L), and are as follows (where character refers to individual values of the input mode/datatype, as indicated):[3][19]

Numeric only Max. 7,089 characters (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Alphanumeric Max. 4,296 characters (0–9, A–Z [upper-case only], space, $, %, *, +, -, ., /, 🙂
Binary/byte Max. 2,953 characters (8-bit bytes) (23624 bits)
Kanji/Kana Max. 1,817 characters

Here are some sample QR Code symbols:

Version 1 (21×21). Content: “Ver1”

Version 2 (25×25). Content: “Version 2”

Version 3 (29×29). Content: “Version 3 QR Code”

Version 4 (33×33). Content: “Version 4 QR Code, up to 50 char”

Version 10 (57×57). Content: “VERSION 10 QR CODE, UP TO 174 CHAR AT H LEVEL, WITH 57X57 MODULES AND PLENTY OF ERROR CORRECTION TO GO AROUND. NOTE THAT THERE ARE ADDITIONAL TRACKING BOXES”

Version 40 (177×177). Content: “Version 40 QR Code can contain up to 1852 chars. …” (a total of 1,264 characters of ordinary/ASCII text [taken from an early version of this Wikipedia article])

Encryption

Although encrypted QR Codes are not very common, there are a few implementations. An Android app,[20] for example, manages encryption and decryption of QR codes using DES algorithm (56 bits).[21] Japanese immigration use encrypted QR Codes when placing visas in passports.

Error correction

Damaged but still decodable QR code

Example of a QR Code with artistic embellishment that will still scan correctly thanks to error correction. Content: “http://en.WIKIPEDIA.ORG

Codewords are 8 bits long and use the Reed–Solomon error correction algorithm with four error correction levels. The higher the error correction level, the less storage capacity. The following table lists the approximate error correction capability at each of the four levels:

Level L 7% of codewords can be restored.
Level M 15% of codewords can be restored.
Level Q 25% of codewords can be restored.
Level H 30% of codewords can be restored.

Due to the design of Reed–Solomon codes and the use of 8-bit codewords, an individual code block cannot be more than 255 codewords in length. Since the larger QR symbols contain much more data than that, it is necessary to break the message up into multiple blocks. The QR specification does not use the largest possible block size, though; instead, it defines the block sizes so that no more than 30 error-correction symbols appear in each block. This means that at most 15 errors per block can be corrected, which limits the complexity of certain steps in the decoding algorithm. The code blocks are then interleaved together, making it less likely that localized damage to a QR symbol will overwhelm the capacity of any single block.

Thanks to error correction, it is possible to create artistic QR Codes that still scan correctly, but contain intentional errors to make them more readable or attractive to the human eye, as well as to incorporate colors, logos and other features into the QR Code block.[22][23]

Encoding

The format information records two things: the error correction level and the mask pattern used for the symbol. Masking is used to break up patterns in the data area that might confuse a scanner, such as large blank areas or misleading features that look like the locator marks. The mask patterns are defined on a 6×6 grid that is repeated as necessary to cover the whole symbol. Modules corresponding to the dark areas of the mask are inverted. The format information is protected from errors with a BCH code, and two complete copies are included in each QR symbol.

The message data is placed from right to left in a zigzag pattern, as shown below. In larger symbols, this is complicated by the presence of the alignment patterns and the use of multiple interleaved error-correction blocks.

Meaning of format information

Message placement within a QR symbol

Larger symbol illustrating interleaved blocks

Four-bit indicators are used to select the encoding mode and convey other information. Encoding modes can be mixed as needed within a QR symbol.

Indicator Meaning
0001 Numeric encoding (10 bits per 3 digits)
0010 Alphanumeric encoding (11 bits per 2 characters)
0100 Byte encoding (8 bits per character)
1000 Kanji encoding (13 bits per character)
0011 Structured append (used to split a message across multiple QR symbols)
0111 Extended Channel Interpretation (select alternate character set or encoding)
0101 FNC1 in first position (see Code 128 for more information)
1001 FNC1 in second position
0000 End of message

After every indicator that selects an encoding mode is a length field that tells how many characters are encoded in that mode. The number of bits in the length field depends on the encoding and the symbol version, as shown below.

Encoding Ver 1–9 10–26 27–40
Numeric 10 12 14
Alphanumeric 9 11 13
Byte 8 16 16
Kanji 8 10 12

Alphanumeric encoding mode stores a message more compactly than the byte mode can, but cannot store lower-case letters and has only a limited selection of punctuation marks. Two characters are coded in an 11-bit value by this formula:

V = 45 × C1 + C2

Alphanumeric character codes are as follows.

Code Character Code Character Code Character Code Character Code Character
0 0 9 9 18 I 27 R 36 space
1 1 10 A 19 J 28 S 37 $

License

The use of QR Codes is free of any license. The QR Code is clearly defined and published as an ISO standard.

Denso Wave owns the patent rights on QR Codes, but has chosen not to exercise them.[4] In the USA, the granted QR Code patent is US 5726435, and in JapanJP 2938338. The European Patent Office granted patent “EPO 0672994”. to Denso Wave, which was then validated into French, British and German patents, all of which are still in force as of November 2011.

The word QR Code itself is a registered trademark of Denso Wave Incorporated.[24]In UK, the trademark is registered as E921775, the word “QR Code”, with a filing date of 03/09/1998.[25] The UK version of the trademark is based on the Kabushiki Kaisha Denso (DENSO CORPORATION) trademark, filed as Trademark 000921775, the word “QR Code”, on 03/09/1998 and registered on 6/12/1999 with the European Union OHIM (Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market).[26] The US Trademark for the word “QR Code” is Trademark 2435991 and was filed on 29/09/1998 with an amended registration date of 13/03/2001, assigned to Denso Corporation.[27]

The word QR CODE is a separate trademark assigned to King Estate Winery Limited, US trademark 85293411.[28]

Variants

Example ofMicro QR

Micro QR Code is a smaller version of the QR Code standard for applications with less ability to handle large scans. There are different forms of Micro QR Codes as well. The highest of these can hold 35 numeric characters.

Standard QR Code is the QR code standard for applications that possess the ability to handle large scans. A standard QR Code can contain up to 7,089 characters, though not all QR readers can accept that much data.

Custom or artistic QR codes are standard QR codes that have been modified for aesthetic purposes or to make it easier for people to recognize a brand.

Risks

Malicious QR Codes combined with a permissive reader can put a computer’s contents and user’s privacy at risk. This practice is known as “attagging”, a portmanteauof “attack tagging.”[29] They are easily created and may be affixed over legitimate QR Codes.[30] On a smartphone, the reader’s many permissions may allow use of the camera, full internet access, read/write contact data, GPS, read browser history, read/write local storage, and global system changes.[31][32][33]

Risks include linking to dangerous websites with browser exploits, enabling the microphone/camera/GPS and then streaming those feeds to a remote server, analysis of sensitive data (passwords, files, contacts, transactions),[34] and sending email/SMS/IM messages or DDOS packets as part of a botnet, corrupting privacy settings, stealing identity,[35] and even containing malicious logic themselves such as JavaScript[36] or a virus.[37][38] These actions may occur in the background while the user only sees the reader opening a seemingly harmless webpage.[39] In Russia, a malicious QR Code caused phones that scanned it to send premium texts at a fee of USD$6 each.[29]

Un Codice QR (in inglese QR Code)[1] è un codice a barre bidimensionale (o codice 2D)[2], ossia a matrice, composto da moduli neri disposti all’interno di uno schema di forma quadrata. Viene impiegato per memorizzare informazioni generalmente destinate ad essere lette tramite un telefono cellulare o uno smartphone. In un solo crittogramma sono contenuti 7.089 caratteri numerici o 4.296 alfanumerici.

Il nome QR è l’abbreviazione dell’inglese quick response (risposta rapida), in virtù del fatto che il codice fu sviluppato per permettere una rapida decodifica del suo contenuto [3].

Indice

Storia

Il codice QR fu sviluppato nel 1994 dalla compagnia giapponese Denso Wave,[3] allo scopo di tracciare i pezzi di automobili nelle fabbriche di Toyota. Vista la capacità del codice di contenere più dati di un codice a barre,[4] venne in seguito utilizzato per la gestione delle scorte da diverse industrie. Nel corso degli anni 2000 alcune di queste funzioni vennero progressivamente assolte dalle etichette RFID.

Nel 1999 Denso Wave ha rilasciato i codici QR sotto licenza libera,[5] favorendone così la diffusione in Giappone. Nello stesso anno NTT docomo, la principale compagnia di telefonia mobile del paese, ha lanciato i-mode, sistema per l’utilizzo del web dal telefono cellulare. In poco tempo i-mode divenne molto popolare tra i giapponesi, e già all’inizio del XXI secolo cominciavano ad essere sviluppate applicazioni per cellulari orientate verso la comodità.

In questo contesto di sviluppo pervasivo del web mobile nella vita quotidiana dei giapponesi,[6] i codici QR si rivelarono utili per sollevare le persone dal noioso compito di inserire dati nel proprio telefonino. Così, dalla seconda metà degli anni 2000, divennero sempre più comuni le pubblicità che ricorrevano all’uso dei codici QR stampati sulle pagine di giornali e riviste, o sui cartelloni pubblicitari, per veicolare facilmente indirizzi e URL.[7] Per qualche tempo in Giappone si diffuse anche l’utilizzo dei codici QR sui biglietti da visita per semplificare l’inserimento dei dati nella rubrica del cellulare. Questa usanza subì però un notevole rallentamento con lo sviluppo dei sistemi di trasmissione dati via infrarossi.

Nel settembre 2005, negli Stati Uniti, è nato il progetto Semapedia che permette di collegare, tramite codice QR, i luoghi fisici alle relative descrizioni su Wikipedia.

In Europa e negli Stati Uniti la diffusione dei codici QR è stata lenta, ma dalla fine degli anni 2000, favorita anche dallo sviluppo del mercato degli smartphone, la tecnologia ha acquistato maggiore notorietà, anche in Italia.[8] Accanto alla definizione QR Code prende piede una definizione più esplicita: mobtag. Sono infatti molte le applicazioni gratuite[9] di lettura dei QR distribuite sia dall’Android Market, che da App Store o da altri siti web. Inoltre diversi siti, tra cui l’open source ZXing Project,[10] offrono l’opportunità di generare i codici gratuitamente.

Licenze e standard

Nel 1999 Denso Wave, pur conservando i diritti di brevetto, ha rilasciato l’uso del codice QR con licenza libera,[5] definito e pubblicato come standard ISO.[11]

Esempio di struttura di codice QR

  • Nell’ottobre 1997 è stato rilasciato lo standard AIM, rinnovato nel 1999.[12]
  • Nel gennaio 1999 è stato rilasciato lo standard JIS (X 0510).[13]
  • Nel giugno 2000 è stato approvato lo Standard Internazionale ISO (ISO/IEC 18004).
  • Nel novembre 2004 Micro QR Code è stato approvato come JIS (X 0510:2004)[11]
  • Il primo settembre 2006 è stato approvato un nuovo standard ISO (ISO/IEC 18004:2006)[14]

Sul versante applicazione, vi è qualche variazione tra implementazioniNTT DoCoMo ha stabilito standard de facto per la codifica degli URL, le informazioni di contatto, e molti altri tipi di dati.[15][16]

Il progetto open source Zxing pubblica una guida agli standard di codifica delle informazioni nei codici a barre.[17]

Varianti

Esempio diMicro QR

  • Il Micro QR (Micro QR code) è una versione ridotta del normale codice QR, usata per applicazioni che richiedono un uso di spazi ridotti e una minore quantità di informazioni, come ad esempio l’ID di circuiti stampati o di componenti elettronici. Esistono diverse forme di Micro QR, quella più densa di informazioni può contenere fino a 25 caratteri alfanumerici.[18]
  • Sfruttando la capacità di rilevazione e correzione d’errore Reed-Solomon dei codici QR, si possono modificare i codici entro il limite della leggibilità, incorporando immagini come logo,[19] caratteri e foto, senza perdere alcuna informazione utile alla lettura del codice.[20]

Funzionamento

I codici QR possono contenere sia indirizzi internet, che testi, numeri di telefono, o sms.[21] Sono leggibili da qualsiasi telefono cellulare e smartphone munito di un apposito programma di lettura (lettore di codici QR, o in inglese QR reader).[9]

Lettura e scrittura

Dato che Denso Wave ha reso pubblico l’uso della tecnologia QR con licenza libera,[5] su Internet è possibile trovare programmi gratuiti sia per la lettura (decodifica) che per la scrittura (codifica) dei codici QR.

Dalla fine degli anni 2000 i programmi di lettura dei codici QR sono spesso già installati nei telefonini dai relativi produttori. In Giappone questa prassi è di norma.

Esempio di lettura di codice QR contenente un link

Esistono comunque molti siti web che offrono i lettori per cellulari, generalmente senza costi. Sul sito ufficiale di Semapedia è pubblicata un’ampia lista di collegamenti alle pagine che offrono lettori specifici per ogni modello di telefono cellulare.[9]

Per leggere un codice QR è sufficiente inquadrarlo con la fotocamera del cellulare dopo aver aperto il lettore.

Per quel che riguarda la scrittura, esistono diversi siti che consentono la libera produzione di codici QR.[21][10]

Specifiche

I codici QR possono memorizzare fino a un massimo di 4.296 caratteri alfanumerici, 7.089 caratteri numerici. Nei codici QR è utilizzato il codice Reed-Solomon per larilevazione e correzione d’errore: nel caso in cui il QR fosse in parte danneggiato, per esempio da macchie o graffi sul supporto cartaceo, l’applicazione Reed-Solomon permette di ricostruire i dati persi, ripristinando, durante la decodifica, fino al 30% delle informazioni codificate.[22]

Esempio di un codice QR con abbellimento artistico che darà ancora la scansione correttamente grazie alla correzione degli errori. Contenuto: “M.WIKIPEDIA.ORG”

Capacità di memorizzazione dei dati
Capacità di correzione degli errori
  • Livello L: circa il 7% delle parole in codice può essere ripristinato.
  • Livello M: circa il 15% può essere ripristinato.
  • Livello Q: circa il 25% può essere ripristinato.
  • Livello H: circa il 30% può essere ripristinato.

Uso nell’arte

Fabrice de Nola La peinture en plein info, acrilico e olio su tela, 2006.

  • Nel 2006 l’artista Fabrice de Nola ha avviato il progetto Active che fa uso di codici QR dipinti[23][24] nel contesto di quadri ad olio o inseriti in fotografie.[25]
  • Nel 2008, l’artista italiano Massimo Silvano Galli, ha esposto durante la mostra “Surf Your Self -ritratti i-pertinenti”, presso la Sala degli Affreschi di Palazzo Isimbardi a Milano, cinque originali ritratti realizzati con i codici QR. I codici di ogni ritratto puntano a diversi siti o pagine web indicati dagli stessi ritrattati come elementi fondamentali della loro identità. [28]
  • Nel 2009, l’artista giapponese Takashi Murakami, in collaborazione con l’agenzia creativa SET, ha realizzato un Design QR formato con le immagini del pattern di Louis Vuitton e di uno dei personaggi dell’artista.[19] Il codice indirizza verso il sito giapponese per dispositivi mobili della ditta di pelletteria.
  • Nel video del singolo All The Lovers (2010) di Kylie Minogue compare un codice QR stampato su alcuni oggetti.[29] Il codice non è abbastanza visibile da poter essere letto direttamente dal video, ma un blogger lo ha ricostruito, rivelando che contiene la parola Love (amore).[30]
