The focus of TagItSmart will be to create a global-scale IoT platform – built using open-source architecture – to support trillions of intelligent items and the data they generate. The platform will provide compelling functionality and full interoperability in order to seamlessly integrate with a vast array of IoT-centric tools, technologies, and software.
TagItSmart will help organizations effectively address challenges regarding the management of IoT products and related services as they seek to capitalize on the growing “sensorization” of objects. TagItSmart will deliver a range of functional capabilities, including 1) the creation of smart markers using NFC or functional codes, 2) the secure acquisition and consumption of contextual data, and 3) the efficient creation and deployment of IoT-based services. To boost platform adoption, a set of industrial use cases will be identified and demonstrated.
Thinfilm’s NFC OpenSense technology will be featured as a key component of the TagItSmart platform, and end-users will be able to access several related use cases that highlight commercial deployment of NFC OpenSense in market.
Thinfilm will collaborate with several key partners on the TagItSmart project, including Siemens, Unilever, EVRYTHNG, VTT and the University of Surrey.
