D2.2: Set of use cases and scenarios

Potential Scenario  Title:
 Identity in the Ambient Intelligence Environment, IPTS



The use of RFID technology for even simple innocuous applications may suffer from the ‘function creep’ issue, thus the subsequent misuse to which it may be put is of real privacy concern and needs to be addressed. 

However, given that RFID technology will most probably become widely accepted and ubiquitous, it is feasible that the profiling technologies being developed for applications such as supermarket loyalty cards can be utilised to reveal extensive descriptions of behaviour, belongings, personal preferences and daily habits, to name a few.  

Worryingly, research has shown that public perception of such developments is negative, yet apathetic. Ultimately, people seem to have concerns about the technology, but have resigned themselves to its inevitability.
