NFC and the Vehicle

Testing the linux NFC stack

The use cases for NFC in modern vehicles are growing with the number of NFC-enabled smartphones. Establishing a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection or opening the car by simply touching it with your smartphone are just two examples.

To support advanced use cases Linux currently offers a solid NFC stack: neard. However, thorough testing will be crucial to enable this stack for use inside a car.

In this talk Timo Mueller will give a brief overview about the NFC functionality that is currently supported and the testing mechanisms that are available. Furthermore, Timo will talk about the idea of using a virtual NFC adapter to allow testing of the complete stack in a controlled environment without the need for actual hardware.
