GAMBAS Final Review Completed

posted Mar 23, 2015, 10:23 AM by Marcus Handte

Today, we are happy announce the succesful completion of the third and final GAMBAS project review in Madrid. During the review, the members of the GAMBAS consortium presented the work that has been executed during the last year. In addition, the members presented their ongoing and upcoming exploitation activities. The review started and ended with a number of live demonstrations of the different applications that have been developed in GAMBAS including:

  • City-wide precise navigation using the buses of EMT Madrid and the GAMBAS Madrid Navigator application for Android.
  • Highly accurate mobile speech recognition using a customizable embedded speech recognition engine.
  • Peer-to-peer secure location sharing using the GAMBAS middleware and the GAMBAS Locator application.
  • Environmental monitoring using mobile pollution sensors deployed on public buses.
Many of these applications are available on Google Play. Make sure to check out our apps section and test them today!

GAMBAS Exploitation Update

posted Mar 11, 2015, 1:54 AM by Marcus Handte

We are happy to announce that NUIG has secured around €250k of funding and investment to realize the exploitation plan for GAMBAS by working closely with Enterprise Ireland (EI) in building Innovation Partnerships with Irish Industries to access research outcome from GAMBAS and OpenIoT projects towards developing new and improved products, processes or services, or generate new knowledge and know-how.

Via Innovation Partnership Program, NUIG has been reaching out to various industries to exploit GAMBAS’s technology with great support from EI’s “Collaborate-with-Industry” funding scheme. As a result, NUIG was awarded three small grants to carry out the three trials with there industrial partners in different domains. These trials act as feasibility studies for bigger investments in building innovative products for the industrial partners.

In parallel, NUIG is working towards commercializing GAMBAS’s technologies and middleware via EI’s commercialization funding scheme. NUIG’s application for a Commercial Case Feasibility Grant has accepted for a grant that enables NUIG to investigate, scope and develop a commercial case for exploiting technologies of GAMBAS and OpenIoT. Via this grant, NUIG will further investigate potential routes to exploitation to the economic benefit of Ireland in the context of such technologies.

We are happy to announce that last week, the Madrid Navigator has been installed by 500 individual users. Since the end of January, our backend services have computed more than 4000 routes.

In addition, we have received more than 40 comments and suggestions for improvement and we were able to collect more than 350 responses to the built-in questions. We would like to thank everyone who used the application for the active participation in the evaluation of the Madrid Navigator and the GAMBAS middleware.

We are currently testing new features that have been requested, including bookmarks for places and real-time departure information. If the tests are positive, we are planning on releasing them at the end of the week.
