New iPhone App launched for SSDC (Singapore Safety Driving Centre)

The SSDC iPhone app will give you an insight into the services provided by Singapore Safety Driving Centre (SSDC). One of the biggest and oldest driving centres in Singapore.

SSDC, a private organization was established since 20 July 1983 as a pioneer driving centre in Singapore. SSDC started training for motorcycle riders on 1 April 1985 and motorcar drivers on 1 September 1985. Their mission is to promote road safety and support the long term road safety strategy of the Government. Our vision is to foster both drivers and riders with excellent skills, knowledge and manners for safe driving and riding.

In year 2005, SSDC was awarded the tender to build the first multi-storey driving circuit in Woodlands. With a total land area of 25,000 square metres, it housed a 3 storey driving circuit and a 5 storey administration block that allows training and testing for all classes of licences including Class 4 and Class 5 under one roof. It also houses all complementary facilities like theory lecture rooms, a vehicle repair workshop and petrol pumps.

SSDC has spared no effort in providing students with the best facilities and instructions for training on road safety. It also conducts defensive driving and riding courses, refresher driving course for qualified license holders. Our rapid development has not gone unnoticed as we were regularly invited to conduct courses in Malaysia, Indonesia, People’s Republic of China, Ghana, India, Nepal etc.

Virtual grocery shopping for train commuters using QR codes.

Several special ‘grocery aisle’ billboards that display images of grocery items are adorning several Korean train stations. Next to these images are QR codes where customers can simply snap up a code using their smartphone. The codes go straight into a virtual shopping cart and when you’re ready to pay you proceed to your virtual check out, and the products get delivered to your house. Simple, effective and efficient! And not to mention bloody brilliant!

Near field communication (NFC)

Near field communication

Near field communication

Near field communication, or NFC, allows for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other, usually by no more than a few centimeters. It is expected to become a widely used system for making payments by smartphone in the United States. Many smartphones currently on the market already contain embedded NFC chips that can send encrypted data a short distance (“near field”) to a reader located, for instance, next to a retail cash register. Shoppers who have their credit card information stored in their NFC smartphones can pay for purchases by waving their smartphones near or tapping them on the reader, rather than bothering with the actual credit card. Co-invented by NXP Semiconductors and Sony in 2002, NFC technology is being added to a growing number of mobile handsets to enable mobile payments, as well as many other applications.

The Near Field Communication Forum (NFC Forum) formed in 2004 promotes sharing, pairing, and transactions between NFC devices and develops and certifies device compliance with NFC standards. A smartphone or tablet with an NFC chip could make a credit card payment or serve as keycard or ID card. NFC devices can read NFC tags on a museum or retail display to get more information or an audio or video presentation. NFC can share a contact, photo, song, application, or video or pair Bluetooth devices.

RFID vs NFC

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a tagging technology that is gaining widespread attention due to the great number of advantages that it offers compared to the current tagging technologies being used today; like barcodes. Near Field Communication, or more commonly known as NFC, is a subset of RFID that limits the range of communication to within 10 centimeters or 4 inches.

RFID uses radio frequency waves that are either passive, active, or a combination of both. Active RFID tags have a power source that helps extend their range even further while passive devices rely on the energy that it receives from the interrogating device to send its own information. Among the advantages of RFID is the very small size of the tag that made it possible to be used with small products or to be hidden away neatly. Another excellent advantage is that it doesn’t need a direct line of sight for the information to be read. This is very desirable in baggage tracking application where speed is very essential.

In their words:

Every day we see merchants willing to spend thousands of dollars on tradeshows, magazine / print, and website campaigns. And then they end up selling at a discount anyway as it’s such a crowded market. We’re not telling merchants what to do, and there are some benefits to tradeshows obviously, but if the world is going to mobile (which it is) and you can easily afford to give it a try (which now you can) then we’re finding that people will do that.”

myApp4KIDS is free to download and use and costs a small monthly fee per advertisement. There are no commissions on sales. Merchants can register at www.myappalogues.com and use the Ad Wizard to easily create instant mobile promotions for their products.
