Abstract

We propose a new high capacity color barcode, named HCC2D (High Capacity Colored 2-Dimensional), which use colors to increase the barcode data density. The introduction and recognition of colored modules poses some new and non-trivial computer vision challenges, such as handling the color distortions introduced by the hardware equipment that realizes the Print&Scan process. We developed a prototype for generating and reading the HCC2D code format, both on desktops (Linux and Windows platforms) and on mobile phones (Android platforms). We tested this prototype in many experiments considering different operating scenarios and data densities, and compared it to known 2-dimensional barcodes.
