Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring connectivity options, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- We talked about faster and smaller,…but what about other ways to connect?…Well, a lot of Android devices right now…have what's called Near Field Communication or NFC.…It's being used across industries for both…being able to detect close proximity to a device,…similar to the way a badge reader might be used…to allow you into a door in a corporate environment,…NFC can be used to have your phone record…that you were in the proximity of a security station…or a warehouse location…or in a particular department of a company…saying you got there, you checked out what was going on,…and you can verify you were actually…in the right place at the right time.…
Beyond WiFi and Bluetooth,…there's other kinds of radio communication…that are coming down the road.…They'll be additional kinds of higher speed…than Bluetooth low energy and richer connectivity,…maybe a higher level of abstraction then WiFi…coming to Android devices in the not too distant future.…So, just don't limit yourself to thinking…you can only do it the way you've always done it.…
