2017 - Conférence sur la sécurité de l’Internet des objets (IOT)

Dans cette conférence, présentée par MM. Ygal Bendavid et Samad Rostampour, nous discutons de l’Internet des Objets en mettant l'accent sur le volet de la sécurité informatique. Des applications actuelles et émergentes servent de mini-cas d’études pour mettre en évidence les défis sécuritaires auxquels nous devons faire face.


2017 - Improving logistics processes of surgical instruments: case of RFID technology

Since mid-2000s, hospitals have begun implementing radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology in order to improve their operations. The purpose of this paper is to explore the potential of RFID technology in improving the traceability of surgical instruments in a hospital environment.  A case study is conducted at a teaching hospital in Montréal. BPR approachand simulation  techniques are used to assess the realistic potential of RFID technology. The application of different scenarios adn how they influence the efficiency of process flow between the central sterilization department and operating rooms of the hospital is investigated

2016 - Building theory from consumer reactions to RFID: discovering Connective Proximity

Academic research into RFID technology has largely neglected ethics. What scarce research was being performed has now dwindled despite having some consumers continue to express their ethical concerns. This article aims at reducing this apparent void by exploring the antecedents that cause the public to react when consumers are targeted by RFID technology. Through the analysis of 11 real RFID implementations used to target consumers, our research indicates that several factors can influence consumer response through the distinct nature of the technology, namely, (1) Customization of communications, (2) Imposition of tag use, (3) Segmentation and targeting, (4) Modified role of the sales representative, (5) Physical distance between the consumer and the tag, and (6) Security of transactions. The article then proposes a construct to determine the risk of raising consumer ethical concerns. The construct of “Connective Proximity” and its three components (physical proximity, exposure time, and information proximity) are defined. Our research highlights the need for further studies on the ethical considerations of tagging humans and specifically tracking consumers when performing marketing activities with RFID technology. Our article aims at invigorating research on this topic, which has a lot to contribute to both society and corporations.

Towards Ubiquitous Computing and the Web of Things

The Internet of things (IoT) is emerging as the next technological revolution and with it, it opens up a new research field. In particular, this new field needs to be studied in conjuction with adequate theories, disign principles and user acceptance. As such, a number of technologies become relevant and intertwined with this new trend. In particular, IoT is an effort to reach out the into the real world of physical objects. In regards, technologies like RFID, short range wireless communication, RTLS and sensor networks ubiquity contribute to make IoT vision a reality...

A "Living Laboratory" Environment for Exploring Innovative RFID–Enabled Supply Chain Management Models.

The purpose of this paper is to present a "living laboratory" research environment, analyse its role for exploring innovative supply chain models, and discuss the methological approaches used in the laboratory during the front end phases of a new product/service development process.
