Mercedes-Benz QR Code Rescue Map

Mercedes-Benz used a QR Codes livery for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class last year but now they have found a serious use. From this year all new Mercedes vehicles will have a safety QR Code. In the event of an accident the QR Codes will provide fire-fighters, police and paramedics the information they need in order to facilitate a rescue. The QR Codes resolve to rescue sheets developed by the German Automobile Association (image below). There will be two identical QR Codes, one on the fuel tank flap and the other on the B-pillar on the opposite side of the vehicle to make them easily accessible on the outside. Apparently it is rare that both these parts are badly damaged at the same time in an accident.
