GS1 DataBar

The GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS, Reduced Space Symbology) is a form of barcode, approved and promoted by the GS1 standards body which contains more data space and is meant to provide new data needed in UPC codes. StoreFrontBackTalk has a good article on it and its benefits. Reminded me of a number of discussions on new tech to address these issues. Interesting it seems that RFID approaches to replace UPCs on the shelf and checkout, once big in the early 00's are now little spoken of. An example of the GS1 Databar above.
