Project description

This project builds on the Grey system, which is a set of software extensions that converts an off-the-shelf smartphone into a tool by which its owner exercises and delegates her authority to both physical and virtual resources. The objective of this project is to use Near Field Communication (NFC) to make Grey easier to use, by developing an Android app for NCF-enabled phones. Instead of selecting items in menus or taking a photograph of a 3-D barcode, a user will instead be able to simply swipe her phone against an NFC door label to gain access or another NCF-enabled phone to initiate communication.
