A QR (Quick Response) code is a type of matrix code first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the auto industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background, and the information encoded can be made up of any kind of data.
