Aiming to enable mass market products to join IoT world by combining functional ink technology, printed NFC, crowd sourced secure scanners and cloud based data analytics. TagItSmart project is a part of the IoT European Platforms Initiative (IoT-EPI).
- Functional ink is used to print QR codes with embedded ability to sense temperature, humidity, elapsed time etc. which combined with printed NFC gives not only the unique identity to each item, but also ability to understand the environment and the context of the item throughout the product lifetime
- Smart phones and smart glasses based scanning, combined with appropriate incentives facilitate involvement of consumers in the process giving them additional information and services related to the item they are using, while at the same time providing valuable information to the manufacturers about how their products are used
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 688061.
