This WI will define the requirements and consequent TSs for a SAI enabler aimed at improving the information exchanging between Smart Accessory and Smart Devices, and usability of Smart Accessory. Please refer to the outlined use case.
A smart accessory is a class of product that really focuses on doing a very specialized task that works in conjunction with your smartphone or tablet.
Whilst the Smart Accessory is becoming increasingly growing, Smart Accessory based services is heavily fragmented due to the multitude of disparate services, implementing a “walled garden” approach.
Up to today, there is no existing standard or de facto standard for Smart Accessory Interface. Application Developer and Accessory Manufacturer have to develop and use different and dedicated interface method, data format, protocol and server model.
This proposed work item to define an Smart Accessory Interface(SAI) is the opportunity to resolve the situation and to produce a standard relevant for the all industry.
