Pr. Serge M. Miranda,

Univ of Nice Sophia Antipolis (France), Scientific Director of DreamIT University Foundation on New Technologies  (

In July 2010, more than 5 billions of Earth inhabitants (out of 6.8) had a cell phone (Ericsson Study) with more than 2 millions of new subscribers a day in 2010. We expect 3.3 billions of Smartp      hones in 2015; Google announced mid November 2010 that their Nexus "S" smartphones will be NFC ((Near Field Communication, [1], [2], [3]) by the end of 2010.  This drastically changes the landscape of information service engineering. QR Code tags, RFID tags and NFC standard in cell phones will be cornerstone of the ICT future in this new paradigm of "local wide web": "Smart objects with smart phones on …smart LOCAL places is a summary of our digital future; digital divide will not be on infrastructure but on SERVICES" [5].


"Mobiquity" is a recent word bearing the IT strategic convergence of mobility (of the cell phone becoming a real computer, a …smartphone) and ubiquity (of Internet among things becoming broadband in the pocket). The next big shift on Internet is mobile! We are endorsing this IT strategic vision of smart (mobiquitous) spaces in our digital information-centric future. Mobiquity is a BRIDGE between the real world of objects and the VIRTUAL world of Internet, between the tagged real world and the world of INFORMATION. Two major mobiquitous agents will induce fast development of innovative mobiquitous services: "TAGS" (mainly 2D/QR Code or NFC) and "AUGMENTED/REDUCED  REALITY" (with smartphones). 

Mobiquitous information services (MIS) of the future will be location-based, time based, pic/scan-based, profile-based and touch-based:

location based ? GPS or Galileo Satellite, MNOs (Mobile Network operators) triangulation and NFC will be used for outdoor positioning while NFC and 2D Tags will be used for precise indoor positioning (shops, library, museums, restaurants,..);

touch-based or picture-based ? The "tag" can be either visual like 2D barcode (QR Code, datamatrix, French flashcode, [4]) or wireless like RFID (Radio-Frequency IDentification) tag without battery but with an antenna (this technology has been well known since 1945).

RFID and QR Code tags will replace traditional 1D barcodes for product labeling. NFC tags (Near Field Communication) are standardized variants ( of RFID tags with a tag reader potentially integrated into a NFC cell phone and very-short range scale to "touch". These tags will provide access to or allow generating new information with the mobile phone either by photographing/scanning the tag (QR Code) or by "touching" it (NFC). Wide range of applications accessible on the NFC cell phones will be defined for citizens, students, tourists, …, along with new communication and marketing approachs.



In this tutorial we give an overview of a portfolio of NFC innovative services prototyped at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis in France since the inception of the standard in 2004, infer some architectural and economics lessons, focus on NFC service development framework within a SIM card, discuss the TSM (Trusted Service Manager) role for dynamic application deployment over the air (OTA) onto a secure element, and propose some key areas of innovation and research : the banker of the future, the guide of the future, the nurse of the future, the keys of the future…will be in your pocket : it will be your own NFC smartphone!


We finally focus on

Mobiquitous payment (with FIRST project for unbanked people in India with Tata CS and Gemalto) and

Mobiquitous tourism with its attached paradigm switch ("from MAXI MIN of the past to MINI MAX of the future") with multidisciplinary aprroach:  ICT (NFC smartphones), economic, sociological, marketing and cultural dimensions should be integrated in a portfolio of services.  


Research presented in this tutorial has been conducted under grants from the Ministry of Industry (IPER) and DreamIT University foundation.
