OBJECTIVE: To control the time and day care, if the user is handing over the material and how many bags consumes. Miscellaneous statistics for both user, address, and civic, neighborhood and station operators.

TOOLS USED: Mifare 1k RFID tags to identify the user boxes, mobile NFC devices to read and write tag (Nokia 6212 or Samsung Star NFC), Web server system administration, database sql postgres to manage data, language Java programming.

ADVANTAGES: using a mobile phone with RFID reader nfc low cost to read and write data, the device can be used as a business phone to capture pictures and to report events. The data are transmitted to the server in real time. Real-time interaction between device and server (messages between server and device, sending photos to the server), ease of reading and writing tags, security in the tag management (NFC, Mifare extension), low-cost GPRS data traffic (about 100byte per transaction, average cost traffic 1 € / MB)

EXISTING SYSTEMS COMPARISON: low-cost device, usually are used dedicated terminals. Interface with GPRS data transmission in real time, existing systems usually store data in internal memory and discharge data are in manual mode often forget to download the data and / or memory device reaches its limit. Web based administration system, existing systems typically use dedicated client applications. Software developed in Java, platform independent.
