Abstract

WiFiTag is a simple and low cost solution for associating the real world to the online media such as web sites and YouTube. Our idea is to redirect a user's access based on the information of surrounding WiFi access points. Compared with WiFi-based indoor positioning system, our system requires no calculation and no much access points. This is because our system associates the digital content not with the location but with the AP itself. as the information of AP, we use ESSID, BSSID, and RSSI. by uploading a scanned WiFi information to the WiFiTag server, a terminal can get the proper URL as a response. Relationship between the WiFiTag and the URL have been defined ahead. WiFiTag realize "real to virtual" connection easily. for example, by associating lab's SSID to lab's HP, a visitor can access a lab's HP easily and directly, when the visitor comes to our lab. a camera required for QR code don't need for our system. in addition, a special card reader and touch action required for NFC are also unnecessary. If WiFi has already exist, no additional cost is necessary for our system. in this paper, we describe a overall concept of WiFiTag and show the availability and feasibility of our proposed system through some experimental evaluation results.
