NU VODAFONE MOBILE FOR GOOD UNIT

Vodafone Egypt Foundation Mobile for Good research unit exists in Nile University under the WINC division. The unit was established to encourage research and development in the field of mobile innovations. The innovations are focused on fields that are most relevant and beneficiary for the community such as healthcare, safety and education. The unit is equipped with mobile phones, medical devices for healthcare and other wireless sensor platforms necessary to conduct research.

Since its establishment, the unit has incubated many diverse projects ranging from graduation projects, research projects and entrepreneurial start-ups. One of the notable research activities under this unit is an undergraduate project concerned with designing, developing and prototyping electronic keys using NFC-enabled smart phones. This is achieved through the use of smart phones to complement traditional keys with "electronic" keys that can be opened and shut using the smart phones, on the spot or remotely. This is envisioned to not only bring an extra dimension of safety and security to households in Egypt (against trespassers) but also adds the flexibility (to open the door remotely using the smart phone, when needed) and complements the traditional keys we use today to which the system falls back in case of power outage. This can also be further developed to serve the needs of the handicapped as it enables them to open doors and control devices with just a touch on their smart phones.
