Innovation Coupon 2009

Within the "Innovation Coupon 2009" action of General Secretariat of Research & Technology, we had the opportunity to cooperate with the Telecommunications Systems Institute in order to develop an algorithm that will allow the fast data transfer between a hub and a mobile device. The algorithm is applying compression techniques to compress and decompress the data transferred from and to a bluetooth access server, with zero data loss.

Although the research has started prior to the roll out of fast and efficient mobile data networks and respective smartphones with big storage capacity, the results of the research have still valid applications in the market for:

- in-store or for localized bluetooth based promotions

- infokiosk systems

- museums or galleries for multimedia content

- or any relevant application that may require fast download of data from a local spot

The successful completion of the project added another tool in the broad list of promotional activities offered by MobileMedia.

The research project 91703367-05-000002 "Innovative Data Compression Algorithm for mobile data via bluetooth access", is implemented within the framework of the Action «Cooperation 2011- Partnerships of Production and Research. Institutions in Focused Research and Technology» of the Operational Programme «Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship» (OPCE ΙΙ), (Action’s Beneficiary: General Secretariat for Research and Technology- MIA-RTDI), and is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Greek State.
