NFC Security Guard Systems NFC Security Guard Systems Presentation Transcript

  • NFC security guard systems 1.NFC 2. Functional Phones in a work environment
  • 1. NFC (near field communication)
  • NFC in brief
    • a convenient way to transfer data between a phone and other devices by touching them together
    • turns your phone into a smartcard
    • make purchases by tapping your phone to an NFC reader
    • use your phone as a travel card at an NFC ticket gate
    • NFC typically works over a distance of a few centimetres
    • uses a smart chip to store credit and travel card details securely
  • Brief Technology description
    • What is NFC?
    • communicates via magnetic field induction and operates in the radio frequency of13.56 Mhz, with a band width of 14 kHz.
    • Exchanging information between phone and a device:
      • an NFC credit card reader,
      • an NFC ticket gate
      • an RFID tag
    • RFID (Radio-Frequency IDentification)
    • Compact wireless technology capable of transmitting a unique identifier such as a unique serial number across a distance in response to a query from a reading device.
    • The RFID tags utilized in the Security application are passive, meaning that they lack batteries and obtain their power from the query signal of the NFC reading device itself.
  • NFC Practical Examples
  • First test project - Security tracking
    • NFC solution keeping track of security guard routes:
      • Last time they logged
      • stations where they scanned
    • Example of control level shown in page below of Vittoriosa waterfront.
  • Next Project
    • Very Big brewery in Malta …
  • 2. Functional Phones in a work environment
  • Common applications
    • A big Market for lone workers
    • - Future EU employment laws converging to a situation where an employer will be needed to be more responsible for the safety of their ‘lone worker’ employees.
    • prevention
  • On the job Applications
  • So we need a phone which has
    • GPS on Board
    • An alarm button
    • Very long battery life(2 months standby)
    • Water proof (eg keep in the water for a time)
    • Shock proof (drop on concrete)
    • Men Down Functions – volunteer
    • 3 messages (Freefall – impact – no motion)
  • This phone exists!!!
  • ...And we create the applications
    • Example
    • GPS track and trace
    • End to end check (Are you still alive?-10mins)
    • If no motion we play an audio file on the loud speaker of the phone… “Help me! … Help me!! … Help me!!!”
    • Battery check of the phone from the server- constant reminder to charge tonight
  • Thank you For your attention
  • Questions???
    • General – Now
    • Technical – After the presentation
