Benefits and opportunities of NFC technology have been discussed for
many years. Continuous promises of handset manufacturers to embed
this technology into their series of devices anytime soon have been
fulfilled only partly so far. Contrasting with that, research and
practice have outlined a number of applications that yield great
attention among users. Among these applications are Smart Posters.
However, the prevailing low market penetration of NFC-equipped
smartphones poses a barrier for the implementation of many Smart
Poster scenarios. Accordingly, this paper proposes to switch the
role between fixed tags and mobile phones by affixing mobile phones
to posters and hand out the much cheaper tags to the users instead.
The paper describes the approach and shows its feasibility by
reporting lessons learned of a case study.
