The QR code has been a popular punching bag for the nonplussed tech press, but Mercedes-Benz has figured out a way to not only make the over-endowed barcode useful, but life-saving. The ADAC — or the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club — is Germany’s version of the AAA. And they require every automaker to provide a “rescue sheet” in vehicles sold in Germany. The sheet provides first responders with information about the placement and volatility of everything from fuel lines to airbags, pressurized cylinders, and the high-voltage cables fitted to hybrids. This gives paramedics, police, and firefighters a map of the vehicle so they don’t cut through something that goes “boom.” How a QR Code Could Save Your Life | Autopia | Wired.com Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

QR Codes added to UKHO's Standard Nautical Charts

In an initiative to deliver the benefits of digital solutions to users of paper navigational charts, the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has introduced Quick Response (QR) codes to its portfolio of Standard Nautical Charts. All newly printed versions of 3,371 Standard Nautical Charts and Mariners' Routing Guides, including Print-On-Demand charts, now feature a unique QR code. By scanning the QR code, the user will be taken directly to the relevant page for the scanned chart on the UKHO's searchable Notes to Mariners database, known as NM Websearch, where they will be provided with instant access on their smart phone or tablet to chart status information. This is a valuable chart management tool that will help to deliver the latest navigational safety information at the touch of a button.

Why Job Seekers Aren't Scanning QR Codes

Now that QR codes have been around for a little while now and are fairly prevalent, it feels safe to say that they have not caught on with the general population. In 2012, roughly 20% of people in the U.S. scanned QR codes, according to Pitney Bowes. Maybe it’s just me, but that number probably hasn’t increased much since. I know I haven’t scanned a QR code in that time frame. There is one simple reason for that: The large majority of smartphones do not offer a preloaded QR reader. Users must download a reader from the app store of their choice before being able to scan a QR code – and most users don’t appear willing to make that effort.
