Paper Abstract

The symbology of the QR Code and the traditional techniques for recognizing the finder pattern of the QR Code were introduced and the disadvantages of these techniques were analyzed. Based on the symmetry of the finder pattern of the QR Code, an algorithm for locating the center of the finder pattern was proposed. By this algorithm, the center of the finder pattern of the QR Code can be located accurately even though one module of the QR Code image occupies only 2.8 pixels or the image is skewed seriously or the image is illuminated not uniformly.
