ZigBee Alliance develops retail services

AUTHOR: Inavate

The ZigBee Alliance has begun the development of ZigBee Retail Services, a new standard focused on the retail experience.

The new standard will define applications for mobile terminals and offer plug-in modules to simplify adoption.

Zigbee is expected to find applications in a number of systems such as in-store information, location services (tracking, arrival alerts), Supply chain management and regulatory compliance. ZigBee is also expected to find its way into energy management systems.
