Paper Abstract

This paper describes a new space-efficient family of thin bar code symbologies which are appropriate for representing small amounts of information. The proposed structure is 30 to 50 percent more compact than the narrowest existing bar code when 12 or fewer bits of information are to be encoded in each symbol. Potential applications for these symbologies include menus catalogs automated test and survey scoring and biological research such as the tracking of honey bees.
