본 논문은 근접 무선 통신 기술(NFC)을 적용하여 박람회 지원 시스템을 구축한 사례와 관람객 행동 데이터(POB: Point of Behaviors)의 분석을 수행한 사례를 소개한다. NFC 기술이 박람회 공간에 적용됨에 따라 관람객은 휴대폰을 통해 다양한 정보를 획득하고 저장, 관리함으로써, 새로운 경험을 하게 되고, 전시자는 NFC 시스템을 통해 획득한 관람객에 대한 데이터 수집 및 분석이 가능하게 되어 관람객과의 CRM 기회를 갖게 된다. 본 연구에서는 ‘2013 내나라 여행 박람회’에 적용된 근접 무선 통신 기반 박람회 지원 시스템의 구축 내용을 소개하고, 수집된 NFC 태그 터치 데이터를 기반으로 날짜 및 부스 별 관람객 수, 관람객의 박람회 체류시간, 관람객 방문 부스 등의 분석을 수행하고, 박람회 현장에서 설문 조사를 실시하여 인구통계학적 정보, 박람회 만족도 등의 데이터를 수집하여 터치 데이터와 교차 분석을 수행한다. 또한 연관 규칙 분석 기법을 이용하여 관람객들이 방문한 부스들 간의 연결 관계를 분석한다.

A Case of NFC-based Exhibition Support System for Analyzing Visitors’ POB(Point of Behaviors)


This research introduces a case of NFC (Near Field Communication) – based exhibition support system for analyzing visitors’ POB (Point of Behavior) data gathered from the system. The application of NFC technology to an exhibition space allows visitors new experiences of exposition and exhibitors to collect and analyze data about behaviors of visitors. The NFC-based exhibition support system is applied to the ‘Korea Travel Expo 2013.’ The visitors’ behaviors are analyzed based on collected NFC tag touch data and association rules among booths are extracted. Furthermore, the tag touch data are integrated with the survey data for catching the demographics-based implications.

The world of ubiquitous computing is one in which we will be surrounded by an ever-richer set of networked devices and services. Especially, mobile phone now becomes one of the key issues in ubiquitous computing environments. Mobile phones have been infecting our normal lives more thoroughly, and are the fastest technology in human history that has been adapted to people. In Korea, the number of mobile phones registered to the telecom company, is more than the population of the country. Last year, the numbers of mobile phone sold are many times more than the number of personal computer sold. The new advanced technology of mobile phone is now becoming the most concern on every field of technologies. The mix of wireless communication technology (wifi) and mobile phone (smart phone) has made a new world of ubiquitous computing and people can always access to the network anywhere, in high speed, and easily. In such a world, people cannot expect to have available to us specific applications that allow them to accomplish every conceivable combination of information that they might wish. They are willing to have information they want at easy way, and fast way, compared to the world we had before, where we had to have a desktop, cable connection, limited application, and limited speed to achieve what they want. Instead, now people can believe that many of their interactions will be through highly generic tools that allow end-user discovery, configuration, interconnection, and control of the devices around them. Serendipity is an application of the architecture that will help people to solve a concern of achieving their information. The word ‘serendipity’, introduced to scientific fields in eighteenth century, is the meaning of making new discoveries by accidents and sagacity. By combining to the field of ubiquitous computing and smart phone, it will change the way of achieving the information. Serendipity may enable professional practitioners to function more effectively in the unpredictable, dynamic environment that informs the reality of information seeking. This paper designs the Serendipity Service based on NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. When users of NFC smart phone get information and services by touching the NFC tags, serendipity service will be core services which will give an unexpected but valuable finding. This paper proposes the architecture, scenario and the interface of serendipity service using tag touch data, serendipity cases, serendipity rule base and user profile.

This research aims to design and analyze a ubiquitous customer relationship management system based on near field communication which can be applied to stores in off-line environment. The existing customer relationship management system has been used mainly for stores in off-line environment to issue a royalty card, to stamp a seal on the purchase goods, and to manage the history of customers’ visits and purchases. But, the existing system has two weaknesses; it makes difficult for a store manger not only to acquire a wealth of customer data but also to systematically manage the acquired data. In particular, the effectiveness and efficiency of the royalty card are questioned when a customer makes purchases in the store in that the customer frequently does not carry it or loses it. So, this research suggests a ubiquitous customer relationship management system where a tag for near field communications is attached to a store in off-line environment; a store manager can collect and manage easily customer’s dada and customers can seamlessly acquire store’s information. To do this, this research conducts the followings. First, we review the previous researches of customer relationship management to examine the concept of ubiquitous customer relationship management. Second, from the examination, we draw the factors to be considered in ubiquitous customer relationship management system based on near field communication. Third, we propose a scenario where the suggested system is used. Fourth, we analyze the participants’ values and the process that will be used for the suggested system. Finally, we discuss the possibility of the application of this system to real business environment from various viewpoints.
