This course provides an introduction to Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which is a short-range wireless communication technology that allows for easy and secure communication between devices. The course covers the fundamental concepts, principles, and applications of NFC technology, and its role in enabling secure and convenient communication between devices.
The course begins with an overview of the basics of NFC technology, including its history, development, and key features. It then covers important NFC concepts such as signal transmission, data modulation, and security. The course also explores important NFC applications such as contactless payments, ticketing, access control, and data transfer.
The course will include a combination of lectures, hands-on exercises, and assignments that will provide students with practical experience in working with NFC technology. By the end of the course, students will have a strong understanding of the key concepts and applications of NFC technology and will be able to develop NFC-enabled systems and applications.
Prerequisites: Students should have a solid background in computer networking, wireless communication, and programming. Familiarity with mobile device platforms such as Android and iOS is recommended.
- Understand the fundamental concepts and principles of NFC technology.
- Gain practical experience in developing NFC-enabled systems and applications.
- Understand the applications of NFC technology, including contactless payments, ticketing, access control, and data transfer.
- Learn to work collaboratively on NFC projects.
- Develop critical thinking skills to evaluate the effectiveness of NFC technology in different contexts.
Assessment: The assessment for this course will be based on a combination of assignments, quizzes, exams, and a final project. The final project will require students to design, implement, and evaluate an NFC-enabled system or application.
Textbook: The required textbook for this course is "Near Field Communication (NFC): From Theory to Practice" by Vedat Coskun and Kerem Ok. Additional resources and recommended readings will be provided throughout the course.
