A QR Code is a two-dimensional version of a barcode, typically made up of black and white pixel patterns. "QR" stands for "Quick Response", which refers to instant access to the information hidden in the Code.

Due to the widespread adoption of smartphones and the "Work From Home" culture, QR Codes have found their way into mainstream marketing.

QR codes can be used for storing URLs or other information that links directly to text, emails, websites, and phone numbers.

Denso Wave, a Japanese subsidiary of the Toyota supplier Denso, developed them for marking components in order to accelerate logistics processes for their automobile production.
