  A barcode or bar code is a method of representing data in a visual, machine-readable form. Initially, barcodes represented data by varying the widths and spacings of parallel lines. These barcodes, now commonly referred to as linear or one-dimensional (1D), can be scanned by special optical scanners, called barcode , two-dimensional (2D) .   By , the Universal Grocery Products Identification Code or UGPIC was written by a company called Logicon Inc. The first company to produce bar code equipment for retail trade use (using UGPIC) was the American company Monarch Marking in , and for industrial use, the British company Plessey Telecommunications was also first in The Bar Code Book has been one of automatic identification industry's best-selling textbooks since it was first published in The Fifth Edition has been completely updated and expanded to reflect current and emerging technology. Previous editions of this book have been used by college educators, MIS departments, equipment manufacturers, government agencies, and . Comprising equipment (i.e., handheld rugged mobile computers; vehicle-mounted computers; handheld and stationary bar code scanners; and thermal label printers) and mobile solutions (mobile bar code scanners and wearable computers), automatic identification and data capture solutions (AIDC) are playing a vital role in the evolution of the modern.

INTRODUCTION Zincode Technologies Pte Ltd provides Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) solutions, Machine Vision Inspection and Printing Inspection Solutions. We develop solutions for manufacturing, pharmaceutical, healthcare, automotive, logistics and distribution markets. Our product categories include bar code scanners, fixed mount . Manufacturers of bar code equipment, the producers of bar code symbols and the users of bar code technology require publicly available standard conformance specifications for measuring equipment applying this methodology, to ensure the accuracy and consistency of performance of this equipment. Amtech also markets data tags that can transmit information about a piece of equipment's well-being. These dynamic data tags are called Automatic Equipment Management, or AEM data tags by Amtech. Externally they look the same as their AEI cousins, but they also have a wire coming out the bottom that hooks up to onboard computers. Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) refers to the methods of automatically identifying objects, collecting data about them, and entering them directly into computer systems, without human involvement. Technologies typically considered as part of AIDC include QR codes, bar codes, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), biometrics (like iris and facial recognition .

A discussion of available automated identification technologies is presented. An introduction to bar coding technology is included, along with an analysis of presently used languages and labels. A generic bar coding system architecture and an actual implementation of this architecture suitable for use in a construction environment are presented.   Bar codes consist of bars and spaces that vary in width. The bars and spaces on a bar code correspond to numbers and letters that represent descriptive data. Scanners scan the bar code to find the corresponding description of the item, including the make and model of an item and its price. Many stores and shops. In fact, as early as the s, bar code has been in the global retail industry has been a small range of applications, and now, bar code and automatic identification systems and data acquisition technology is still in the global play a vital role.
