Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | May 15, 2017 | AIM, the trusted worldwide industry association for the automatic identification industry, providing unbiased information, educational resources and standards for nearly half a century, has announced that the Public Review of the revised International Symbology Standard (ISS) – DotCode, developed by AIM’s Technical Symbology Committee (TSC), is now available for a 30-day public review.
DotCode is a public domain optical data carrier designed to be reliably readable when printed by high-speed inkjet or laser dot technologies. With this standard, real time data like expiration date, lot number or serial number can be applied to products in a machine-readable form at production line speeds.
This AIM, Inc. document has been revised to correct a pair of typographical errors and most importantly, "ANNEX A, Dot Pattern Scoring Routine (Normative)” has been updated to detect extremely rare but hard-to-decode symbol patterns and give them a lower score as part of the mask-selection process.
Further, where the time it takes to perform the complete 4-mask evaluation presents a problem for very high-speed encoding, this revision of the DotCode symbology specification permits the mask-selection process to be abbreviated to improve the speed of encoding, without compromising symbol integrity.
The public review process officially ends June 15, 2017.
