NEC Technology Develops Unique mIDoT, Enables Ink Dots to Become Identification Tags

NEC Technology converts hand-made single dots objects to digital data

NEC Corporation announced that it has developed a “micro-sized Identifier Dot on Things” (mIDoT) technology, which will enable single dots written with off-the-shelf glitter ink pens to become distinctive identification tags.

NECmIDoT does not require the use of printing or glue. Dots can be easily applied to many objects by automated machines, or even by hand, enabling the technology to be conveniently used by anyone, anywhere to identify products or property.

“This technology is expected to be used for a broad range of applications, including identification tags for ultra-small electronic components and products which are too small for the use of barcodes; tags for managing goods that are lent or taken out; keys and tickets used for access control; and identification tags for linking physical objects with digital data in the cloud,” said Akio Yamada, General Manager, Data Science Research Laboratories, NEC Corporation.

In addition, dots can be identified by using a database in the cloud, enabling physical objects to be linked with digital data.
