Airbus Soars with Wearable Technology
Airbus Soars with Wearable Technology
Building an Airbus aircraft involves complex manufacturing processes consisting of thousands of moving parts. Speed and accuracy are critical to business and competitive advantage. Improvements in both would have high impact on Airbus’ bottom line. Airbus wanted to help operators reduce the complexity of assembling cabin seats and decrease the time required to complete this task.

Near Field Communication Forum (NFC)
Near Field Communication Forum (NFC)
The NFC Forum is a non-profit industry association whose membership draws from all parts of the NFC ecosystem. Working within the framework of the NFC Forum, member organizations share development, application, and marketing expertise to develop the best possible solutions for advancing the use of Near Field Communication, enhancing the lives of consumers worldwide and advancing members’ business objectives.Near field communication, abbreviated NFC, is a form of contactless communication between devices like smartphones or tablets. Contactless communication allows a user to wave the smartphone over a NFC compatible device to send information without needing to touch the devices together or go through multiple steps setting up a connection.Near Field Communication utilizes electromagnetic radio fields while technologies such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi focus on radio transmissions instead.Bluetooth. Radio-frequency identification. QR codes. The modern world is ever expanding and with it comes new technologies that change the way we communicate and interact with each other.Who benefits from near field communication?- Busy moms checking out at the grocery store- Businessmen and women riding the subway to work- Businesses looking for faster, more secure payment methods for customers- Students touring a museum- And many moreNear field communication (NFC) technology lets smartphones and other enabled devices communicate with other devices containing a NFC tag. Whether swiping your smartphone at the checkout lane in the grocery store, waving it over a display at a local museum, or bumping phones with a friend to share the latest games, near field technology lets you pay, play, and learn easily.
Open Connectivity Foundation
Open Connectivity Foundation
Billions of connected devices (devices, phones, computers and sensors) should be able to communicate with one another regardless of manufacturer, operating system, chipset or physical transport. The Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is creating a specification and sponsoring an open source project to make this possible. WHAT ARE WE DOING?- Defining the specification, certification & branding to deliver reliable interoperability -- a connectivity framework that abstracts complexity- Our open specification allows anyone to implement and it is easy for developers to use- It includes predictable IP protection & branding for certified devices (via compliance testing) and service-level interoperability- There is also an Open Source implementation of our specification - IoTivity Project- This Open Source implementation is designed to enable application developers and device manufacturers to deliver interoperable products across Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, Tizen, and more.WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?- We want to connect the next 25 billion devices for the Internet of Things.- We want to provide secure and reliable device discovery and connectivity across multiple OSs and platforms.- There are multiple proposals and forums driving different approaches... but no single solution addresses the majority of key requirements.- To get industry consolidation around a common, interoperable approach.- To build a broad industry consortium of companies to create a scalable solution.WHO NEEDS THIS?- Consumers, Enterprise, Industrial, Automotive, Health, etc. who want smart devices to easily interconnect and communicate with appliances, embedded devices, etc.- Developers of operating systems, platforms, and applications who want their products to interoperate seamlessly across many brands and ecosystems.- End users who want consistent levels of security and identity across smart devices down to the smallest connected appliance
