Starting in September, Mercedes will be placing high-tech QR codes in all of their vehicles to help aid paramedics and firefighters in rescuing accident victims from their vehicles. Many auto-makers supply their vehicles with a car rescue sheet that includes printed instructions on how to best pry the car apart and to rescue any trapped passengers. Most car owners do not carry these hard-copy instructions in their cars, and even if the sheet is stored in the vehicle, it is often difficult for the rescue workers to locate among all the damage. Mercedes hopes that this QR code will eliminate any delay in the accident rescue process. The QR codes will be placed on the fuel tank flaps and on the other side of the car between the front and rear passenger doors for easy access. Rescue workers will simply have to scan the QR code with their smartphones to obtain these detailed rescue plans.
QR codes can be used in a variety of ways to help make life easier for both consumers and businesses. For more information on how QR codes can help your business, visit Advanced Mobile.
