The QR code (in English stands for Quick Response Code) is a twodimensional barcode, made of black modules arranged in a scheme, usually square in shape. It is used to store information, generally intended to be read with an internet connection using devices such as smartphones and tablets. QR Codes are rapidly spreading around the world prompted by spread of smartphones.
Our company has developed a system Info Tile, which consists of a "tile QR Code" (horizontal signs positioned on the road surface) in which is inserted the QR code of the organization of reference, made with material that provides resistance to all the climatic conditions, thermal and drive-over.
Our service, through the placement of info Tile on the road surface and not, is the junction point between the real world (roads, streets and in general the city) and the virtual world (data on a server) and allows to represent content, disclose information, activate functions, services and interactions.
Positioning an Info Tile on a street or in a square allows citizens to communicate and get information at any time, in a direct and updated way.
The resulting advantages relate to the ease of interaction and the opportunity to transform the citizen into an active part of the city through the obtainment of information, data sharing, economic transactions, ease of communication with the institutions and businesses, constantly, without time constraints, without using a computer, without the queues at the counters and without having to visit a location physically.
