The Internet of Things will be a key topic at Cartes & IDentification 2009 in Paris Nov. 17-19. This new event is expected to provide attendees an opportunity to view future applications related to mobile payments, home automation, remote management and geo-location.
The Internet of Things is expected to cover the European Casagras project, an EU funded program which stands for coordination and support action for global RFID-related activities and standardization. It includes participants from France and the United Kingdom, as well as China, Japan and Korea, all which are working to establish standards for the communications and encoding used by these new technologies.
Currently, more than one million machines, such as electricity meters, photocopiers, navigation systems and more, already exchange information across wired or wireless networks which lack proper compatibility. They are progressively migrating towards “all IP” and the new “network of networks” as a result of the convergence of wireless and contactless NFC technologies.
The CARTES & IDentification Trade show at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, is expected to attract 20,000 visitors and 1,500 delegates. Russia will be the guest of honor.
