CARTES

How smart and contactless technologies are changing everyone’s lives
Asian Sesames to reward innovation on 29 March 2011 at CARTES in Asia
 
Imagine a world where there are no fake goods, no one needs to carry a wallet or where cars make meals. In just a few years, smart and contactless technologies such as NFC, RFID and the ‘Internet of Things’ could make this possible.  
 - Wallets may become a thing of the past. According to a recent (February) report sponsored by Mastercard, mobile and contactless payments will experience immense global market growth over the next five years, reaching US$680 billion and US$320 billion, respectively. In Beijing, China Unicom launched its SIMpass in January, giving the public contactless mobile payment on thousands of buses, taxis and in businesses, including the car parks, supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies, cinemas, public telephones. SIMpass has more than two million users in more than 20 cities and provinces of China, including Beijing, Hunan and Jiangsu.

 - In the future, fake goods may become obsolete. All products including pharmaceuticals could be tagged with RFID (radio frequency identity) chips to prevent fakes. For example garment manufacturers such as Gerry Weber already implant chips into their care labels to stop copying.  In just a few years, these RFID chips will be so small that they may be used to tag all manner of products to prove authenticity.
 - Machines will talk to each other to make peoples’ lives easier. When people arrive home by car, the car could potentially switch on the air conditioning unit, the air conditioner could switch on the TV and microwave and so on. According to Analysys Mason, the consumer ‘Internet of Things’ will grow to almost 16 billion connectable devices worldwide by 2020.
Innovations such as these and many more will be showcased and discussed at CARTES in Asia exhibition and conference on 29 – 31 March 2011 at AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong.  Over 170 exhibitors and more than 4,000 trade visitors are expected.
 
On Tuesday 29 March, 2011, the first day of CARTES in Asia, The Asian Sesames Awards will announce the most innovative smart technology application in Asia Pacific. Jury members include Frank Xu, chairman of the Smart Card Forum of China and Greg Pote, chairman of the Asia Pacific Smart Card Association. Last year’s winning product was Watchdata’s DBS Live Fresh 3-in-1 credit card that combined banking, transport and retail payments on a single chip dual interface smart card and used in Singapore.
Professionals from the fields of banking, security, IT, electronics, retail, telecoms, logistics and government who are responsible for innovation cannot afford to miss this trade show and conference.

智能及非接觸式科技正改變每個人的生活
 
一個沒有膺品、沒有人攜帶錢包又或是一個連汽車也能夠做飯的世界,並不是天方夜譚。在數年後,智能及非接觸式科技例如:NFC、RFID 及Internet of Things (物聯網)等技術將能夠把以上提及的想像實現。

 - 錢包可能已經成為歷史的產物,最近由Mastercard贊助的報告指出,移動及非接觸式付款將於未來五年會經歷鉅大的全球性增長,預計增長額分別可達六千八百億及三千二百億美元。在北京,中國聯通於一月亦時推出非接觸式流動付款產品SIMpass。SIMpass除了能夠繳付公車及計程車的車資外,用戶更可在停車場、超級市場、餐廳、藥房、戲院以及公眾電話使用SIMpass進行交易。直至現時為止,在全國包括湖南、江蘇在內的二十多個省市已有超過二百萬名SIMpass使用者。

 - 未來,膺品可能不再出現。所有包含藥物的產品均可配置RFID 晶片以預防偽造。成衣製造商Gerry Weber早已在旗下產品置入晶片以阻止產品被抄襲。而在短短數年間,這些RFID晶片將會變得更微細,可於更多產品內植入以作辨別真偽之用。

 - 機器之間的連接及溝通將會令人類生活變得更方便。當我們駕車回家,汽車可以控制開啟空調;空調又控制電視機等。根據Analysys Mason表示,於2020年全球Internet of Things 的消費者將會與超過一百六十億部物聯裝置連接起來。
 
以上提及的創新智能科技將於亞洲博覽館舉行的第二屆亞洲智能卡展中展出,並且會在2011年3月29至31日的各會議中討論。而今屆亞洲智能卡展預料將會吸引超過170個參展商及超過4000名商貿來賓參與。
在2011年3月29日 (星期二),亞洲智能卡展的第一日展期,The Asian SESAMES Award (亞洲芝麻獎) 將會揭曉去年在亞太地區,最創新的智能技術應用項目。今屆評審包括中國智能卡協會主席 Mr. Frank Xu及亞太智能卡協會主席Mr. Greg Pote。而去年The Asian SESAMES Award得主則由Watchdata為星展銀行推出,於新加坡使用的Live Fresh 三合一信用卡。(信用卡內置含銀行服務、交通及零售繳付功能的雙面智能卡)
來自銀行、保安、IT、電子、零售、通訊、物流及政府,為創新智能科技發展的各專業界別人士絕對不能錯過第二屆亞洲智能卡展及展會中的研討會。
