Toshiba’s New Scanner

At first glance, this new development in scanning technology seems to eliminate the need for barcode and RFID, but is the new Toshiba scanner really the end of barcodes?

By using food recognition technology, the new Toshiba scanners cut down time in a checkout line by eliminating manual food code entry. The scanners recognize food by pattern and color, and they are particularly useful for produce. Fruits and vegetables are not typically barcoded at the item level, and so, employees have to add the items by entering codes. If the employee does not have all the codes memorized (which can be quite the extensive list), this can be cumbersome and timely. The new Toshiba scanners were created to resolve these issues by eliminating the code entry process and cut down on delays as a result.

Understanding RFID

RFID tags, simply put, are intelligent barcodes that allow the tracking and management of an item.  RFID tags have existed since the 1970s, but because of their relatively high cost, have only recently become a popular and viable replacement for the more “traditional” barcode.  

Historic Uses of RFID Tags

RFID tags were originally used to track high-value or large items like livestock, railroad cars, or airline luggage when transported over a long distance. RFID tags, at that time, were a complex system of metal coils, antennas and glass called an “inductively coupled RFID tag.”

The Road Code

The utilization of QR codes on public advertisements has presented marketers with the challenge of overcoming safety issues. In the state of California, the use of a mobile device while driving is illegal, so placing QR codes in ads on buses or billboards has many limitations (only passengers can scan the code or drivers will have to illegally use their mobile devices to get the information stored on the code).

Paul Brocky and Tom Catuosco have developed a more “driver friendly” alternative to the QR code in response to limitations the QR code presents. “The Road Code” is a four character alpha-numeric code that can be used as a redirect, similar to the way QR codes are used.
