In that list, bar codes are machine readable code which can be understood only by the computer and smartphones. The bar codes are designed with a binary system which is 1s and 0s. While designing the barcodes the specific value will be encrypted with the white and black bars. When the light from the scanner falls on the barcodes, the white lines will reflect the light.
The machines read the black line as 1s and white lines as the 0s. The unique value will be decrypted from the barcodes by the system then it passes the signals to search the value with product database. If the value is matched with the database it will display the product data and prices.
