Spectrum Databases for IoT & Future Wireless Networks (Fisseha Mekuria, CSIR Meraka Institute)

A novel tool set to change frequency spectrum allocation, management and regulation.

  • Until recently it was tedious to check unused frequency channels. The technology to allow sharing of frequency channels by secondary broadband wireless networks, was unavailable.
  • Sharing of white space spectrum channels: Model-based Spectrum Toolbox: Techniques of Sharing and Reusing the spectrum without any interference, 5G, LTE-U, ……
  • The CSIR has developed a national geo-location spectrum database – a technology rooted in information and communication technology and Wireless Communication Networks. Enabling successful testing of spectrum sharing networks.

Testbed: Cape Town Spectrum sharing TVWS Network

Passion for life – the digital heath preventor platform (Jan Aidemark & Linda Askenäs, Linnaeus University)

“Passion for life” is a spread concept that makes people aware of what they can do in their daily life to live healthy longer. It is about breaking common patterns, be aware of improvements, proceed from theory into action and make changes in your own life. The program consist of six areas; empowerment, safety at home, nutrition, active living, social life, medications.

Our idea is to bring this proven and spread concept to a new area were we bring the most out of ICT to assist in the goal. By co-designing and developing a platform, integrating technologies and tools we would like to support all six areas.
