Supporting NFC on Linux IVI Systems - Samuel Ortiz, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Linux recently gained NFC (Near Field Communication) support, from kernel NFC sockets up to a proper and simple NFC D-Bus API. During this presentation I will explain how we can use this new Linux feature to improve and facilitate the automotive user experience on Linux based infotainment systems.
I will first present the Linux NFC architecture and design, show how it's built around standard and simple APIs. As this stack aims at being as hardware independent as possible, I will also go through the list of supported NFC chipsets and features. Then I will describe where we want to take this NFC  stack in the future.Finally, I will focus on a specific NFC feature that could be of great interest for the automotive industry. The NFC handover can drastically simplify the Bluetooth pairing process in cars and I'll describe how that can be achieved with the Linux NFC stack.

I work as a software engineer at the Intel Open Source Technology Center. There I maintain a few kernel subsystems, among them the NFC one.I also maintain and implement the NFC userspace stack and mess with connection managers. | My speaking experience include giving talks about various connectivity and wireless topics at the Embedded Linux Conference, the Plumbers Conference or the MeeGo one, among others.
