My vision of the Internet of Things, there are not only sensors, wired or wireless devices, but in my opinion, it is possible to give life to things on the Web without the use of active devices.
By this vision I have derived two approaches:
- classic IoT applications, albeit with a look at mature technologies which will inevitably be with us for some more years, and those more recently introduced, such as BLE and NFC. This approach allows the use of almost all mobile devices, not just the latest generation. In this context I design and make both software and hardware;
- dynamic and intelligent QR Code based applications, which give new life to a tag at each new step, accompanying a service or a product during its life along all its steps, and at the same time returning different contents depending on the context or used app. From this project derived the spin-off Flipp and a scientific paper with Kaunas Forestry and Environanmental Engineering University of Applied Sciences in Lithuania.
