A Wearable and Ubiquitous NFC Wallet
MetadataShow full item record
Technology that is able to integrate the multitude of accounts into one safe, convenient, and wearable pass is an attractive modern setup. Such a technology would be required to have the ability to customize, and unify this information into a convenient and secure system. Since all of a user's accounts are stored in a single device, the act of carrying around copious amounts of smartcards becomes obsolete. The following prototype has three main elements: the wearable technology, a smart reader, and a web-based phone application. The wearable technology is the access point for the user, the readers retrieve the required information, while the application allows the user to modify the information they wish to store. NFC Wallet is ubiquitous; the software is web-enabled so that the user can control it using smart phones, tablets, laptops and other computing devices. The system provides a true pervasive computing experience. This paper presents the organization, architecture, hardware/software interface design, evaluation and analysis of the proposed system.
