The StoLPaN project turned NFC enabled mobile handsets into multifunction terminals with bi-directional interaction between the NFC chip and the wireless communication channels. It demonstrated the use of this generally applicable new technology in mobile micro payment transactions and in retail operations.

Besides technical research and development the project work included research activity related to security, legal, privacy and consumer protection issues relevant in case of RFID-NFC usage.

The 25 member international consortium, representing 6 countries and industry leaders like Motorola, Sun, NXP, T-Systems, AutoIDLab, Deloitte, was working under the technical management of SafePay.
