Two-Dimensional Barcodes Usage in Plastic Pipes Blockchain-Based Supply-Chain

Kudryashov S., Madhwal Y., Maslov I., Trepalin A., Yanovich Y.

The use of counterfeit products causes considerable financial damage to the states and companies. Product labeling and tracking in a blockchain-enabled system can overcome this problem. One- and two-dimensional barcodes are accessible and have cheap labeling technologies, but it can be challenging to read the labels on products with curved shapes. This paper presents the plastic pipe labeling problem and its solution with two-dimensional barcodes, integrated with a blockchain-enabled supply chain. The labeling technique choice is based on QR and Aztec barcodes readability empirical study for different barcode parameters, reading software libraries for flat and curved surfaces.
