Enabling Living Spaces Through Customizable NFC-Enabled Smart Table System

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


This paper presents a near field communication based smart table with a cloud-based web user interface for controlling. The user needs for a smart furniture system were gathered and based on the expert stakeholders, the main needs were synthesized into 1) environment supporting the resident's possibilities for communication and participation, 2) simple to use, easy to modify, unnoticeable, 3) supports several actions. Based on these needs, the technical development work presented in this publication was carried out. As proof-of-concept applications, the system allows the user several functionalities: sending text message, sending email, making phone call, playing music, opening coffeemaking tutorial or useful contact information. Preliminary testing for system functionality and practical use were conducted. The testing results indicate that the system is working reliably. Also, the NFC tags integrated performed well in terms of read range and surface reading area. The paper presents an innovative platform for smart home applications.
