  2. 2. QR Codes – The basics<br />QR codes are a type of two-dimensional bar code.  <br />QR codes are intended to be scanned by the camera on a mobile phone, providing a fast and easy way to transfer information. <br />The phone uses a reader application to recognize the QR code and convert it to a small amount of data, either text or often a URL pointing to a mobile web page.<br />2D barcodes can contain more information than a traditional one-dimensional barcode.  They are also easier to read at various angles, difficult lighting conditions, as well as for device cameras with limited focusing capabilities.  <br />
