Product description

Jump into the world of Near Field Communications (NFC), the fast-growing technology that lets devices in close proximity exchange data, using radio signals. With lots of examples, sample code, exercises, and step-by-step projects, this hands-on guide shows you how to build NFC applications for Android, the Arduino microcontroller, and embedded Linux devices. You'll learn how to write apps using the NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF) in PhoneGap, Arduino, and node.js that help devices read messages from passive NFC tags and exchange data with other NFC-enabled devices. If you know HTML and JavaScript, you're ready to start with NFC. Dig into NFC's architecture, and learn how it's related to RFID Write sample apps for Android with PhoneGap and its NFC plugin Dive into NDEF: examine existing tag-writer apps and build your own Listen for and filter NDEF messages, using PhoneGap event listeners Build a full Android app to control lights and music in your home Create a hotel registration app with Arduino, from check-in to door lock Write peer-to-peer NFC messages between two Android devices Explore embedded Linux applications, using examples on Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone

Author information

Tom Igoe teaches courses in physical computing and networking, exploring ways to allow digital technologies to sense and respond to a wider range of human physical expression. He has a background in theatre, and his work centers on physical interaction related to live performance and public space. He is a co-author of the book Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers, which has been adopted by numerous digital art and design programs around the world. Projects include a series of networked banquet table centerpieces and musical instruments; an email clock; and a series of interactive dioramas, created in collaboration with M.R. Petit. He has consulted for The American Museum of the Moving Image, EAR Studio, Diller + Scofidio Architects, Eos Orchestra, and others. Don leads the mobile practice at Chariot Solutions, where he gives equal love to all things web and native. He's the author behind the PhoneGap NFC plugin and secretly likes Windows Phone 7. Chariot Solutions is a consulting firm based out of Philadelphia with a strong focus on mobile, especially PhoneGap. Brian Jepson is an O'Reilly editor, hacker, and co-organizer of Providence Geeks and the Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire. He's also a geek-at-large for AS220, a non-profit arts center in Providence, Rhode Island. AS220 gives Rhode Island artists uncensored and unjuried forums for their work and also provides galleries, performance space, fabrication facilities, and live/work space.
