MOBILE NFC DEVELOPMENT:   Successful TagBuddy Trial

TagBuddy is an example of Crisp's cutting edge, design implementation and testing of secure mobile solutions. It is Crisp's secure service discovery system that makes use of RFIDs, NFC phones, apps and back-office server systems. Trials and demonstration are being carried out with Transport for London and a famous picture gallery (hear one user's account). The project which arose from Crisp's tagging R&D activities was  supported by the UK Technology Strategy Board.
