What is gray code?
Gray code evaluates the type of binary code or data made up of on and off indicators, usually represented by ones and zeros. The Gray code developed by Bell Labs scientists was used to study clarity and error correction in binary communication.
Gray code is also known as reflected binary code.
Essentially, Gray code works to refine and clarify binary results. Part of this process deals with the idea of physical switches for binary code; Experts explain that physical switches may not sync accurately. Other problems include signal noise where misplaced binary bits or numbers could cause transmission problems.
To do this, the Gray code examines a switch or segment of binary files at a time and methodically iterates through the binary code to look for consistency. Some common examples are applications for digital terrestrial TV signals and wired digital signals.
