Jump into the world of Near Field Communications NFC , the fast growing technology that lets devices in close proximity exchange data, using radio signals With lots of examples, sample code, exercises, and step by step projects, this hands on guide shows you how to build NFC applications for Android, the Arduino microcontroller, and embedded Linux devicesYoull learn how to write apps using the NFC Data Exchange Format NDEF in PhoneGap, Arduino, and nodejs that help devices read messages from passive NFC tags and exchange data with other NFC enabled devices If you know HTML and JavaScript, youre ready to start with NFCDig into NFCs architecture, and learn how its related to RFIDWrite sample apps for Android with PhoneGap and its NFC pluginDive into NDEF examine existing tag writer apps and build your ownListen for and filter NDEF messages, using PhoneGap event listenersBuild a full Android app to control lights and music in your homeCreate a hotel registration app with Arduino, from check in to door lockWrite peer to peer NFC messages between two Android devicesExplore embedded Linux applications, using examples on Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone
