NFC technology or looking for a new way out in the logistics industry?

As we all know, NFC technology belongs to a branch of RFID technology. The slow development of NFC technology in recent years is mainly caused by the limitation of its application. With the popularization of mobile payment in recent years, people's food, clothing, housing and transportation can be solved through a mobile phone, which greatly improves the efficiency of people's work and travel. NFC is used to conduct anti-counterfeiting traceability verification, anti-counterfeiting payment, social sharing, etc., and NFC technology has gradually been recognized by the public.
There are some problems in the actual application of QR codes. For example, the complicated payment method will cause a lot of queues, the security factor is not high, it is easy to steal information, the payment environment must have a good network, etc. The damage of the QR code will also affect us. Payment, travel experience, etc.
So people began to seek a more convenient and safe payment method, so the two-dimensional code was born at the same time as the two-dimensional code. NFC, which was prepared as a demand for information transmission and upgrading, has re-entered the public’s field of vision and has gradually become familiar to people.
Using a mobile phone with NFC function, you can pay directly by sticking the back of the mobile phone to the place where you need to swipe the payment, or directly use it as an access card to quickly pass through the security channel. Its fast and convenient features directly hit the shortcomings of the QR code application. In terms of payment, there is no need to go through the Internet, and you can pay directly without revealing information. It can be said that it is the first choice to replace the QR code as a mature and safe payment method.
NFC (NearFieldCommunicaTIon) near field communication technology, also known as short-range wireless communication, is a short-distance high-frequency wireless communication technology that allows non-contact point-to-point data transmission (within ten centimeters) to exchange data between electronic devices. This technology evolved from contactless radio frequency identification (RFID) and is backward compatible with RFID.
Like RFID, NFC information is also transmitted through electromagnetic induction coupling in the wireless frequency part of the spectrum. NFC and RFID look very similar at the physical level, but they are actually two completely different fields, because RFID is essentially an identification technology, and NFC is a communication technology. NFC exchanges data through non-contact point-to-point data transmission (within ten centimeters) between devices. This mode is similar to infrared and can be used for data exchange, but the transmission distance is shorter, the transmission creation speed is faster, the transmission speed is faster, and the power consumption is low.
When NFC came out, it was placed high hopes, and there was a certain development abroad, but because smart phones were not popular at that time, and the corresponding software and hardware needed to be installed, the transmission protocol did not reach a consensus, and the transmission speed was no longer sufficient. People's needs nowadays are gradually forgotten by people.
Now that the Internet and smart phones have become popular, NFC has gradually been applied in many fields.
1. Financial Payment
Mobile = bank card. It realizes that current bank cards can be used for flash payment function, but in order to use offline payment more efficiently, various manufacturers have added wallet functions to their mobile phones, through NFC functions such as ApplePay, SamsungPay, MiPay, etc., you can directly Pay with your mobile phone card.
NFC financial payment
2. Traffic
Traffic can be said to be the most basic function of NFC applications. The gate can be automatically opened by touching the card reading area of ​​the gate by the NFC device. This is the integration of the function of the city traffic card into the NFC device, which is realized by card simulation . NFC can help the transportation system to improve the efficiency by an order of magnitude, and the transportation system's support for NFC will also boost NFC to complete the initial and basic framework of a good ecosystem.

3. Tags
 NFC tags have contact-through applications, which are similar to RFID applications, such as community access cards, but this is less common on mobile phones. There is also contact browsing, which is mainly used to identify and track objects with NFC information, such as Nintendo 3DS game consoles. The amiibo figure is identified through NFC, and the corresponding content will be displayed on the screen. The amiibo figure is an NFC tag. In addition, some NFC electronic tags can write simple commands to activate the specified functions on the phone, such as writing a command to switch the silent mode on the tag. When the tag is close to the phone, the phone will automatically go into silence.

 4. Communication
NFC inherits the human-computer interaction, machine-machine interaction and other functions that RFID should have. It will go out of professional factory applications and go to people's daily home appliances, realizing people's simple and controllable home appliances. Nowadays, there are more NFC home appliances applications such as NFC digital cameras and NFC smart TVs. Needless to say, NFC mobile phones have become the most commonly used electronic devices in people’s daily lives. With the rise of the concept of the Internet of Things, NFC will gradually enter people’s lives. .
5. Retailer Super
The application of NFC in retail takes the French Casino supermarket as an example. In October 2012, the French Casino supermarket chain announced the pilot of the world’s first NFC supermarket. In the supermarket, users read the NFC tags of the products on the shelves through NFC mobile phones, and then customers The NFC mobile phone will display the product ingredient list, supply information, video data, price and other related information, and the supermarket can understand consumer preferences through the number of tag readings, and further arrange the humanized display of shelves to promote consumption. At the same time, it can be combined with a virtual APP to increase or decrease the purchase of products, so that consumers can see the products they purchase at a glance, and know the amount of consumption in advance, and NFC payment can also be combined.

6. ​​Safety traceability system
The NFC peace of mind rental system launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology of South Korea. After passengers download the system APP, they can scan the NFC tag in the car to obtain the taxi's license plate number, driver number, driver name, contact information, and road section information. Passengers can send the letter to their family members or relatives and friends' mobile phones in the form of text messages, and simply swipe the label to add peace of mind to night travel, so that family members and friends will no longer worry about waiting. Nowadays, the accident-prone taxi-hailing software is not as good as this NFC system in South Korea, which can match the corresponding NFC rental system, then the safety factor of shared travel will be greatly improved!

7. Advertising interaction
Using NFC tags for advertising interaction, it has been used as early as 2012, and Australia promotes its latest Halo 4 game. The promotional poster has an NFC tag and a QR code. The two methods are complementary, and the biggest feature of this event is that the first player to read the NFC tag can get a unique reward, while subsequent readers can only get basic Propaganda content, this propaganda method can arouse players' enthusiasm for treasure hunting, search NFC ads throughout the city to get rewards for the first reading. Moreover, the in-depth browsing of advertisements has been strengthened a lot, which is also a perfect combination of online and offline, virtual and real activities.
8. Book Publishing
For books, whether e-books will replace paper books has always been controversial, and now the arrival of NFC technology will also change the original book publishing model. In October 2012, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA launched NFC books at the Hot Air Balloon Festival. These books integrate eight kinds of NFC chips, which can be read by NFC devices to browse multimedia, interactivity, infotainment, personalization, social media, etc. It can be added to bring a different reading experience, especially after adding videos, games, and social functions, paper books become rich and colorful. Publishing is more than just books. NFC can also be applied to CDs. The first is to prevent piracy. Although the two-dimensional code also has a certain anti-counterfeiting function, its reproducibility is too strong, and it is difficult to compare with NFC in terms of security.
NFC technology can be applied to scenarios such as warehousing, picking, and distribution in the logistics industry. For example, label scanning, food and drug traceability, the most important thing is that it can solve the problem of difficult to grasp the transportation details in the distribution process. In some industries, it is also possible to directly interact with users. Users can directly feedback their needs when purchasing products.

The large-scale progress of NFC technology has promoted the development of NFC technology, and has also increased the popularity of this technology to a certain extent. Provide a large amount of data and a good platform for the development of subsequent applications. With the maturity of NFC technology, the application scenarios will become more and more extensive.
