Public Review - DotCode Revision

Notice of Public Review

* Special review at NO cost expires June 16, 2017 *

AIM announces the Public Review Draft of the International Symbology Standard - DotCode developed by the AIM Technical Symbology (TSC) Committee.

DotCode is a public domain optical data carrier designed to be reliably readable when printed by high-speed inkjet or laser dot technologies.  With this standard, real time data like expiration date, lot number or serial number can be applied to products in a machine-readable form at production line speeds.


This AIM, Inc. document has been revised to correct a pair of typographical errors and most importantly, "ANNEX A, Dot Pattern Scoring Routine (Normative)” has been updated to detect extremely rare but hard-to-decode symbol patterns and give them a lower score as part of the mask-selection process. Further, where the time it takes to perform the complete 4-mask evaluation presents a problem for very high-speed encoding, this revision of the DotCode symbology specification permits the mask-selection process to be abbreviated to improve the speed of encoding, without compromising symbol integrity.


If you wish to review or provide comments, please follow these steps:

NOTE: Public review documents are DRAFTS and no commercial decisions should be made based on their content. Anyone intending to use information from this document for implementation purposes must wait for the final published document which will be made available in the AIM Store as soon as it is finalized.
