NFC smart poster
Depending on the poster and environment, the consumer may receive targeted information about their current location. A lost tourist would find a smart poster extremely helpful if the poster launched a map application with directions to a nearby landmark. In a retail setting, an NFC smart poster may offer coupons, information about a product, or loyalty points. The consumer’s phone acts as the loyalty card and stores the information. The convenience of not having to keep track of multiple loyalty cards or worry about activating accounts is beneficial for the consumer.
NFC technology streamlines the user experience. Even though smart posters may simply take the user to a website, the user didn’t have to take time and type out the URL. Typing isn’t an arduous task by any means, but any convenience added, no matter how small, is a win for the overall user experience.
How to make an NFC smart poster?
Required Components to make an NFC Smart Poster:
- Object (paper, poster, window, etc.)
- NFC tag encoded in the NDEF format
- NFC Reader/Writer
Typically, NFC smart posters are prepared in two ways:
- The NFC tag is embedded withing the object before printing.
- The NFC tag is affixed to the object after printing.
Both have benefits and drawbacks, but it essentially comes down to your resources and printing capabilities. However, the strength, thickness, and durability of the object needs to be considered before the tagging process. If the paper is thin, the tag and adhesive may show through. Also, take into consideration the surrounding environment’s impact on the NFC tag’s performance. Liquids and metals have the biggest impact on radio frequencies. Additionally, the NFC tag will need to be durable enough to stand up to repeated physical interactions.
NFC-Smart labels communicate with consumers
The internet of things may be closer than you think. The beverage company Diageo and the Norwegian company Thinfilm have unveiled a prototype Johnny Walker Blue Label bottle that wirelessly speaks to consumers’ smartphones. No sensors or batteries required, just a printed label.
The label can tell whether the bottle has been opened and communicate other information to the consumer such as special promotions or drink recipes. The label relies on Thinfilm’s OpenSense technology that uses smartphone’s near field communication (NFC) capabilities. NFC can send signals over a short distance, typically 10 centimeters or less. The customer’s cell phone thus needs to be placed very close to the label. The technology allows Diageo to track bottle movements across the supply chain, in-store and to the point of consumption, with the sensor tags remaining readable even when the factory seal has been broken, providing an additional layer of security in protecting the authenticity of the product.
Printed tags that communicate via NFC are becoming increasingly common and have the potential to replace or at least rival QR codes on products and in printed ads. The creative agency Tomoco has recently shown how NFC can be used effectively in printed advertising.
NFC wristbands are also called NFC bracelets. Depending on their material, they can be divided into silicone NFC wristbands, ABS NFC wristbands, woven NFC wristbands, PVC NFC wristbands, and paper NFC wristbands.
NFC wristbands are widely used in identification and location control; such as in access control, security, attendance, etc.
Their use can also be extended to exhibitions, parks, hotels, restaurants, and other public places. We produce NFC wristbands that use the NTAG series chip, and HF(13.56MHz) frequency.
