Device Coordination Use Case

Case 1.

  • A user finds her favorite shoes at a shoe store in a mall. She obtains information by reading the RFID tag attached to the shoes with her personal device. Basic information (e.g., price, some product information, and recommendations) can be stored in the device. In this way, the user can acquire information on all her favorite shoes throughout the mall.
  • The user meets her friends and goes to a cafe. They each transfer acquired information from their personal devices to a large-screen display device on the table via the cafe’s network. They can then compare information regarding their favorite shoes. Related content is searched for in the mall databases and on the Internet, and then the information acquired from the various sources is compared.
