Implementing Physical Hyperlinks for Mobile Applications Using RFID Tags
Hyperlinks are a well understood and widely used concept in many applications. Particularly the Web has promoted the concept of “clickable” links to users. Typically, hyperlinks are only used to interact with applications and content in the “virtual” sphere of information systems. However, the basic idea of a hyperlink, which is creating an inviolable link between two resources, can be extended to the physical world as well and then allows a much closer and more intuitive interaction with information systems in many scenarios. We describe how RFID tags can be used to implement physical hyperlinks that establish a direct connection between a physical object and a mobile information system. Any kind of mobile, objectcentered information system, such as the PDA-based visitor information system for museums MoVIS presented in this paper, provides a richer experience for users when it is extended into the physical world with physical hyperlinks.
