Contactless Commerce RFID Systems

contactless commerce rfid systems special research report Photo by
Stepping off the Tube at the major financial outpost of London’s Canary Wharf, commuters in recent weeks have been assaulted by a marketing campaign of military proportions. From the underground exit gates to the top of the vertiginous escalators and on to the pedestrian forecourt, every available surface is plastered with advertisements for a new, “revolutionary” technology that promises to transform the world of cash payments: the contactless card. Though brimming over with hyperbole, the fanfare is not without some justification – and indeed some necessity. For the contactless card aims to fulfil ...
wireless communication technology which enables the exchange of data between devices over about a 10 centimeter (around 4 inches) distance. 1 The technology is a simple extension of the ISO/IEC 14443 proximity-card standard ( proximity card , RFID ) that combines the interface of a smartcard and a reader into a single device. An NFC device can communicate with both existing ISO/IEC 14443 smartcards and readers, as well as with other NFC devices, and is thereby compatible with existing contactless infrastructure already in use for public transportation and payment. NFC is primarily aimed at usage in mobile phones . Cite ...
Pros and Cons of RFID Technology
Radio Frequency Identification provides a valuable service that is capable of revolutionizing the way companies track products. There are many benefactors of this technology: the military, retailers, suppliers, consulting firms, producers of the technology, and consumers. RFID provides companies with a better alternative to bar-coding because no line-of-sight is needed to read a pallet, a carton, or a product with a RFID tag. RFID tags also contain information on the product that is easily readable and accessible for the reader. RFID will also begin to automate company’s supply chain, reducing labor costs, human error ... market research, surveys and trends
Digital Money: Unexpected reaction
As you may recall, they were one of the first football clubs in the world to move to an all-contactless stadium with no paper tickets. In passing, it was mentioned that an unexpected consequence of the transition to (fast) contactless transactions was that the fans all turn up five minutes before the game, so Manchester City were thinking of using loyalty points to tempt fans into the ground earlier on (so that they will buy stuff in the ground I suppose). This echoed something I remember reading about Reading FC, so I went and looked it up. Reading FC trialled a contactless system for one season but postponed the project due to ... market research, surveys and trends

Mobile Payment Expo: Understanding the Mobile Payments Landscape
In this era of multi-channel banking, the people present represented payments of physical goods using mobile, payment of internet content using mobile and some card based systems were also available either on offer or in interaction with the mobile phone. For example, you could surf on the internet and buy digital content by paying through an addition to your telephone bill. In many companies, mobile phones can be used to make small payments. According to Semra Uzumcu, consultant with Innova, in Turkey, these payments have to be less than 40 Turkish lira (or 20 Euros). In Turkey, there are three telecom operators, of which two ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Center for Public Integrity
Last month, a gunman opened fire on an insurance building in the ancient Thai city of Ayutthaya, piercing the glass windows of the People�s Alliance for Democracy headquarters with 11 millimeter caliber bullets. A few weeks earlier, bombs made from powerful plastic explosives were detonated near transmission towers in the same city in an unsuccessful effort by terrorists to darken the manufacturing district. The violent episodes hardly registered in the United States. Few Americans have heard of Ayutthaya, after all, or know of a reason to pay attention to it. But there is a reason, one directly connected to America�s security. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

PIER B Online - Interference Analysis of UHF RFID Systems
In this paper, RFID reader-to-reader interference is analyzed from the point of view of interrogation range. To evaluate RFID interference quantitatively, the new figure-of-merit, interrogation range reduction ratio (IRRR), is defined. In order to show the usefulness of IRRR, its value is calculated in various environments. Additionally, the calculated IRRR values are verified by measurements using two RFID readers and an RFID tag. IRRR can be referred to an important design parameter to analyze more complex interfering problems in instances of actual RFID system deployment. Citation: D.-Y. Kim, H.-G. Yoon, B.-J.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). What do you think? Good ...
I have worked in both the Government and Retail sector and RFID is being used to simplify and streamline processes. There is often a basic misunderstanding of the technology by laymen which is the only catch to further widespread use. The average man seems to think these little tags can be tracked from space. lol That said, the potential is great. I look forward to putting items in the cart and then going through an RFID "gate" at the register and have everything ring up without the need for a cash register operator. There will still need to be people involved because no technology reduces the need for manpower it just displaces ...
Contactless Payments: How are they Secured? | LinkedIn Answers ...
Myself and colleagues have been having a discussion this morning, regarding contactless payments and their security. My question is, what security is in place to stop a fraudster making a device, walking into a crowd of people with contactless cards and taking relatively small amounts of money off all of them? Surely there must be security measures in place to stop this happening? Please enlighten us if you know! posted January 6, 2009 in Wireless | Closed Share This Market researcher, Moscow branch of MegaFon see all my answers Best Answers in: Market Research and Definition (2), Telecommunications (2), Wireless (2) This was ...
