Android and the Web of Things: NFC, QR, BLE and Arduino
Presented by Dominique Guinard 
(40 mins approx not incl. questions)

What if every day objects could all become part of a gigantic network also known as the Internet of Things? What if your watch, guitar, bike or bottle of organic iced-tea could all have an active digital identity on the Web? Combine techs such as NFC, QR-codes, EPC or Bluetooth low energy and Android smart phones and this becomes an ideal framework to implement the Web of Things...

Subjects covered:

Introduction to the Internet of Things and the Web of Things
Using Android as a gateway for the Web of Things

QR codes, 1D barcodes, NFC, EPC, Bluetooth Low energy in an Android and Java context

Who should attend:

Talking about the IoT/WoT context and intro, anyone who isn't in the field yet really.
Talking about the pure coding it will stay high level (because the topic is broad) open to all.
Suitable for undergraduates also.


Dominique Guinard (aka Dom Guinard) is the CTO and co-founder of EVRYTHNG, a software company providing Active Digital Identities, for any physical object. He got his Ph.D. from ETH Zurich, where he worked on laying down the foundations of the Web of Things: a world-wide network of interconnected objects (sensors, appliances, machines and tagged objects) and co-founded the Web of Things (WoT) community. Before this, he worked on bringing industrial networks of RFID-tagged objects to the Web at the MIT Auto-ID Labs in the USA. He also worked 4 years for SAP on the software aspects of the next generation platform for integrating the Internet of Things with business processes.
