The Physical Web in Smart Cities [article]

Dmitry Namiot, Manfred Sneps-Sneppe
2015 arXiv   pre-print
With this approach, we can navigate and control physical objects in the world surrounding mobile devices.  ...  In this paper, we discuss the physical web projects based on network proximity for Smart Cities. In general, the Physical Web is an approach for connecting any physical object to the web.  ...  But the process of forming mesh networks for Bluetooth devices could be very similar (conceptually) to Wi-Fi Aware.
