Abstract

Two dimensional (2D) barcode is gaining popularity as a pervasive technology for mobile applications. When used together with camera phones, the 2D-barcode can provide a link between the digital and the real world. Currently, there exists a number of different 2D-barcodes that can be used in a variety of mobile applications. However, this development is still in its infancy. Some of the popular 2D-barcodes currently used for mobile applications were not originally designed for camera phones. This is more pronounced for color 2D-barcodes, where many technical challenges still exist. This paper proposes a new color 2D-barcode that is specifically designed for mobile applications. It identifies some key factors that can improve the robustness of the color 2D-barcode on mobile devices, which in turn would enhance the user’s experience of this pervasive mobile technology.
