NFC Prototype Bonanza
This report presents the results of the research conducted by Tor Kreutzer and Ø yvind Holmstad during the summer of 2011 at the University of Troms ø. The goal of the project was to gain practical experience with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology by exploring its properties through hands-on development of applications and services. To explore the applicability and limitations of NFC we have developed a range of diff erent prototype applications and services that utilize the technology in di fferent ways. The applications are mainly implemented on the Android mobile platform, but many of them communicate with servers running on traditional computers. The applications vary widely, from the simple Tagger which can read and write NFC tags, to NFC Presenter which uses NFC to simplify the process of starting presentations from your mobile device. NFC Safari uses the user's location to identify the closest sightseeing spot, and from there on takes him on a city safari. Applications like PartyShare and Are You the One? explores how powerful NFC can be in a social setting. Detailed descriptions and implementation details of all applications can be found in chapter 4.
