Following on the heels of Nice, the French Riviera is planning to implement its own mobile tour guide system based on NFC technology.
Dubbed the CHEMIN project, the system offers visitors multimedia content, including audio, text, photos and videos, for each town and village visited. The media is accessed by waving an NFC handset over specially marked tags at historical points of interest.
The system, which employs the use of 2D bar codes in addition to NFC tags, also contains an interactive element that allows visitors to leave digital comments on the places they visit as well as the presented media.
CHEMIN will be officially launched Saturday, June 26 at 9:30 in Place de l’Eglise, Gorbio.
