Touch & Control: Interacting with Services by Touching RFID Tags

Iván Sánchez, Jukka Riekki, Mikko Pyykkönen

Abstract

We suggest controlling local services using an NFC capable mobile phone and RFID tags placed in the local environment behind control icons. When a user touches a control icon, a control event is sent to the corresponding service. The service processes the event and performs the requested action. We present a platform realizing this control approach and a prototype service playing videos on a wall display. We compare this touch-based control with controlling the same service using the mobile phone's keypad.
