Abstract

Currently, there are several codes to refer to things. For example, barcode and QR code. Barcode is commonly implemented for supporting retail industries, for example to identify books and products. Meanwhile, QR code is generally implemented to code URL and other internet-related things. The purpose of this paper is to provide an innovative and a new way to differentiate things, which is called color code. Color code is visually more appealing and is easily understood for the humans' eyes. This is a strong advantage that makes color code at a distant winning if it is compared to the barcode and QR code. Color code is applicable to various applications, but because the color code technology is visually more attractive, color code is preferably implemented for entertainment and lifestyle need, because naturally humans' eyes are more attracted to color code rather than to other types of codes. Color code can be scanned by the smartphone camera. After the color code is obtained by the camera, an application is used to interpret camera input into data, and then transform the matched flagged sign color code combination into a specific instruction. In this research, we successfully made an application to translate color code based on Java OpenCV for Android smartphones.
