Assisted Living Using GPS and mobile technology we can provide greater independence and freedom to vulnerable members of the community. GPS technology accurately calculates an individuals location and uses the mobile phone network to send that location to the carer. An example being the buddi (www.buddi.co.uk)
What does the South West UK have to offer? The South West is well positioned to contribute to the GNSS downstream and upstream value chains through the following sectors: Microelectronics Aerospace Creative Biomedical
Microelectronics The South West UK has the largest concentration of silicon design engineers in Europe, second only to Silicon Valley in the US The region employs 25% of the UK’s microelectronics manpower 5,000 people in around 400 companies Multi-nationals such as STMicroelectronics, Broadcom, Infineon, Toshiba, HP, Intel, Gooch & Housego and others The region has a world-class microelectronics R&D cluster, with; 200+ prime design and development companies 100+ systems integrators. Significant subsectors are; Silicon Design (including RF ICs, ASICs, Analogue Mixed Signal and Power ICs) Optoelectronics.
Aerospace One of the largest and most significant aerospace clusters in the world, with; 18,000+ employees Ten of the top global aerospace companies (BAE Systems, Airbus, Rolls-Royce Defence Aerospace, MBDA and AugustaWestland) 700+ supply chain companies A prominent player in civil projects led by Airbus and Boeing as well as defence projects such as Typhoon Joint Strike Fighter and the A400M. A world leader in; airframes, engines, equipment, rotorcraft and UAVs. World class research facilities such as Atkins, QinetiQ, Halcrow, Fraser Nash and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) Defence Equipment and Service (DE&S) in Bristol employs around 7000 people and controls a $25 billion budget covering acquisition of ships, aircraft, vehicles and weapons, as well as information systems and satellite communications.
Creative Bristol has the strongest digital media supply chain outside London. Nokia and HP, two of the largest names in content development for web and mobile, have facilities in Bristol. BBC Bristol is a centre of excellence in High-Definition production Animation in the South West is internationally recognised; for example the Oscar winning Aardman Animations. The University of Bournemouth is home to The National Centre for Computer Animation, the UK's leading centre for computer animation. The South West generates £153m of television production each year with 700 hours of daytime TV made each year in the South West. 11 production companies from the South West feature in Broadcast Magazine's 2007 'top 50 by turnover' survey.

Review of the TRM day Use of novel feedback platform – this allowed the capture of broad and multi-layered information from a high number of delegates. Initiative has a business need bias and focus – 62% business, 24% Public Sector bodies, 14% Higher Education Institutes. Thematic areas of interest: Transport solutions Next generation phone apps through technology transfer Antenna, tracking device and remote sensor design Transfer of augmented reality technology to other sectors
A - Transport solutions Utilisation of safety critical software across the transport sectors Bicycle tracking through enhanced use of visualisation and tracking data Developments in remote sensing and GIS for UAVs and ROVs
B - Next generation phone apps through technology transfer Use of established Human-Machine Interface platforms Integration and testing of GPS signal data into apps
C - Antenna, tracking device and remote sensor design Integration of tracking technologies to monitor farmed and wild animals Application of mathematical rigour in antenna/tracking device design
D -Transfer of augmented reality technology to other sectors Training of surgeons and clinicians using established augmented reality platforms Visualisation and monitoring of nuclear reactors through augmented reality Automotive mobile communications enhancement through use of augmented reality Design of buildings and visualisation of environmental impact.
Your chance to comment and participate Do the identified thematic priorities have research, commercial or technological resonance in your region? If so, please tell us who you are, who you represent, and how you would like to participate collaboratively and commercially in our initiative.
e.g. I am A N Other and I work for Newco, we have a new tablet platform and we're looking for LBS content to populate our platform, so you create it and we'll test it and provide the marketplace.
Are we missing other opportunities? What have we missed? Are there other growth fields that would offer better commercial results?
EENSW Support EENSW will now support this initiative by: Facilitating the development of the 4 thematic themes Leverage the Enterprise Europe Network to identify international companies which can make a positive contribution Help broker engagement of the supply chain in future collaborations Help accelerate the commercialisation of the outcomes
Case Study: B - Next generation phone apps through technology transfer Distanc---er™This product allows you to measure the distance to the vehicle in front by processing visual information and will assess if you are at a safe breaking distance for your speed. This South West UK SME would like to collaborate to develop this patent protected technology as an augmented reality mobile app and invites expressions of interest.
