RFID Meets Bluetooth in a Semantic Based U-Commerce Environment
The authors present a novel resource discovery framework for u-commerce. Both the original RFID data exchange protocol and the Bluetooth Service Discovery Protocol have been extended in order to enable support for the semantic annotation of products and goods. Given a request, the approach they propose allows an enhanced discovery process exploiting the semantics of resource descriptions available in a u-marketplace. The enhancement is backward compatible with both the original discovery protocols, thus allowing the smooth coexistence of the resource discovery and/or identification approaches.
