UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, is organizing a national pavilion at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 trade show, in Barcelona (Spain), one of the world’s foremost events for mobile telecommunications, services and content.
The French Pavilion will be the largest at the 2014 trade fair in terms of surface area and will feature French-based businesses and agencies from sectors including telecoms infrastructures, mobile-telecoms applications, mobile advertising and marketing, mobile games and accessories, as well as engineering and financial services.
The pavilion’s area will consist of three islands in Hall 5 (Booths 5B41, 5B61 and 5B71) and, for the first time, an island in Hall 8 (Booth 8.1D41) called App Planet, which is entirely devoted to new mobile-telecoms applications, and which features 200 businesses every year.
There will be 15 innovative companies gathered under France’s banner in Hall 8, within the App Planet area, including Adxperience, Altheia, Appsfire, Aquafadas, Axway, Capptain, Goodbarber, Madgic, Profil Technology, Rezopep, Smartadserver, Summview, Twinlife and Xtraball.
The French Pavilion will also be hosting several partner regions, including Brittany, Ile-de-France (i.e. Paris and its region), Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrenées and Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, as well as two competitiveness clusters — Systematic Paris Région, from Ile-de-France, and Solutions Communicantes Sécurisées, from Provence (in South-Eastern France). Finally, Invest in France Agency (IFA) will be represented on the French Pavilion: it is the government agency in charge of inward-investment promotion for the whole of France.
In its role as organizer of the French Pavilion, UBIFRANCE is also in the process of setting up B2B meetings between exhibiting French businesses and major telecoms-industry groups such as Telefonica, Vodafone Spain, Singtel and Samsung.
Below is a selection of the must-see innovations to be featured this year on the French Pavilion.
This product detects new mobile applications while acting as a promotional launch pad for iOS and Android, thanks to its innovative tools.
G2J’s MyEasyVision® makes video-conferencing easily accessible to all members of staff in the client entity. MyEasyVision® is the unique entry point for real-time booking, monitoring and reporting features. This application is available through all web browsers and mobile devices (Android, iOS, etc.), and is compatible with all the technologies currently used by manufacturers and network operators.
CopSonic, developed by Pixerlis, is the first patented universal technology for mobile payments. It is compatible with most mobile devices on the market and represents the future of secure, hands-free payment systems, explains the company. Using sound waves as a means to exchange secure consumer data, this system is able to turn any telephone into a contactless payment device.
Twinsee, developed by specialist company Twinlife, is a free video-call service based on WebRTC. It can be used to call contacts, friends or family from a tablet, smartphone, Android television or Google Chrome browser on a PC or Mac. Twinsee is the first mobile application to provide a free video-call service in high definition based on the Web RTC standard. It works in peer-to-peer mode on Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G/LTE.
The hi-tech solution developed by Wysips has the potential to revolutionize telephone charging through the use of a solar cell which is integrated into the mobile device’s screen, thus preventing the wireless device from ever running out of battery power. Wysips will showcase its technology at the trade show.
Xooloo™ is a parental-control tool developed by the company of the same name, which uses internet filtering in order to allow children to surf the web safely and securely. It is compatible with Android smartphones and tablet devices using versions 2.3 to 4.2.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.

With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

For the first time, Fraunhofer IKTS shows additively manufactured hardmetal tools at WorldPM 2016 in Hamburg. Mechanical, chemical as well as a high heat resistance and extreme hardness are required from tools that are used in mechanical and automotive engineering or in plastics and building materials industry. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden managed the production of complex hardmetal tools via 3D printing in a quality that are in no way inferior to conventionally produced high-performance tools.
Fraunhofer IKTS counts decades of proven expertise in the development of hardmetals. To date, reliable cutting, drilling, pressing and stamping tools made of...
At AKL’16, the International Laser Technology Congress held in May this year, interest in the topic of process control was greater than expected. Appropriately, the event was also used to launch the Industry Working Group for Process Control in Laser Material Processing. The group provides a forum for representatives from industry and research to initiate pre-competitive projects and discuss issues such as standards, potential cost savings and feasibility.
In the age of industry 4.0, laser technology is firmly established within manufacturing. A wide variety of laser techniques – from USP ablation and additive...
Every three years, the plastics industry gathers at K, the international trade fair for plastics and rubber in Düsseldorf. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will also be attending again and presenting many innovative technologies, such as for joining plastics and metals using ultrashort pulse lasers.
