Barcodes add a new dimension

It’s time for right coding with affordable 2D barcodes coming in demand in verticals like aviation, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing, writes Jyoti Verma
The increasing number of companies in fast-growing sectors like aviation, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing, with supply chains that usually tend to be geographically disconnected, is heightening the requirement for enhanced information flow to accompany individual items during transit. This need for improved data density capability is compelling them to naturally progress from one-dimensional (1D) barcodes to two-dimensional (2D) barcodes. The prime benefits here include better storage capacity than one-dimensional barcodes and economics than the RFID.
