Emerging Technologies White Papers

  • Ensure Interworking Between Multiple Contactless Card Emulation Environments
    Published January 2018
    This white paper, from the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, GlobalPlatform and the NFC Forum, provides an overview of the standardized solution defined in the GlobalPlatform Managing Entity specification (GPC ME) and the related HCI and HCI specifications. The architecture, main interfaces and role of the GlobalPlatform Managing Entity are described. (20 pages)
  • Designing E-Paper Displays for IoT Applications
    Published November 2017
    Pervasive Displays discusses how e-paper displays can be built into Internet of Things devices. The bistable nature of e-paper minimizes power consumption with regard to changing display information, and fits with such wireless protocols as BLE and ZigBee, enabling devices to maximize the time they spend in sleep mode. E-paper works well with Near Field Communication since it can run off RF energy scavenged from an NFC reader, enabling battery-less designs. (12 pages)
  • Securing the Enterprise of Things
    Published October 2017
    The Internet of Things has the potential to be the next great computing era. 451 Research, in a white paper commissioned by BlackBerry, discusses the results of a survey of 200 IT de¬cision-makers responsible for endpoint decisions in their organizations. The appeal of unifying all enterprise endpoint security and management within a single system via the IoT is strong, but some challenges still remain. (17 pages)
  • The State of the Medical Device Industry: Enabling a Smart Inventory System to Automate Field Inventory Management
    Published October 2017
    With more than 6,500 medical device companies and a growing amount of inventory being transported in the field on a daily basis, gaining real-time visibility of inventory is vital. While many solutions exist for managing critical supplies, a fully connected, smart inventory-management system presents the most proactive solution for automating inventory management. Terso Solutions explains how, with the rapid growth of IoT and RFID technologies, a feasible solution can be applied to the health-care medical device markets. (8 pages)
  • Life Sciences Industry Vision: Laboratory Automation Through a Smart Inventory-Management System
    Published October 2017
    As the life sciences industry continues to grow, there is an emergent trend toward the need for a real-time, automated, integrated supply chain based on the concept of a smart inventory-management system utilizing UHF RFID technology. The industry is burdened with manual and outdated processes that create difficulties for personnel and company operations. Terso Solutions explains why it is important to determine proactive, value-based solutions that create significant changes in workflows and efficiencies. (8 pages)
  • The Internet of Visuals: The Power of Virtual and Physical Union in IoT/IoE Logistics
    Published October 2017
    ProxiGroup's Curtis Shull explains how companies can revolutionize their business with interactive computer-aided design, and how to use virtual-to-live Internet of Things designs to streamline processes in logistics. (10 pages)
  • IoT-Enabled Platform for Planning and Designing of Smart Cities Infrastructure
    Published October 2017
    The Internet of Things uses analytics to predict and control the future, and comprises sensors, actuators, communications, connectivity, data analytics, security domains and smart applications that can be delivered to Web and mobile interfaces. Dr. A.N. Sarkar discusses the scope and opportunities of IoT-enabled platforms for the purpose of using this as a planning tool, and for the designing and building of basic infrastructure for smart cities.

  • An NFC Pairing Mechanism for RF Remote Controls
    Published September 2017
    The primary mechanism for communication between remote controls and set-top boxes has been infrared. Newer technologies like RF and BLE provide many benefits over this legacy technology, resulting in increased reliability, such as working at greater distances and not requiring a line of sight. In this paper, Gautam Babbar and Braden Flowers outline a unique solution to pair an RF remote with a target utilizing Near Field Communication tags. (4 pages)
  • Bluetooth Real-Time Location Systems
    Published August 2017
    The real-time location system industry is rapidly adopting Bluetooth for a number of asset-tracking scenarios that were not well-suited for RFID, Wi-Fi or ultra-wideband (UWB) technologies. These early iterations of RTLS technologies will continue to serve the industry, but Bluetooth opens up a completely new price/performance option for companies that want to add location intelligence to their operations. Fathom takes a look at the next generation of indoor location technology. (8 pages)
  • NFC Forum–ISO/IEC 14443 Analog Parameter Comparison and Alignment: Methodology, Procedures and Results
    Published April 2017
    This white paper compares analog parameter limits between the NFC Forum and ISO/IEC 14443 RFID standards. For each parameter limit, an associated procedure is defined, written in such a way that an experienced engineer can repeat the procedure and measure similar results. (148 pages)
