ExpeShare partners develop technology for capturing and sharing experiences

30.10.2007
European research partners in Finland, France, Spain and Italy have started a project, ExpeShare, that develops concepts and technologies for capturing and sharing experiences securely, legally and in a simple way.

You are having the time of your life: skiing, visiting a picturesque village or attending an interesting conference or concert. It's so great that you would like your friends to know how it feels. Not to mention you'd like to relive it later. How to convey this experience to others? Why is it so difficult to capture the moment and pass it on for others to enjoy?

The challenge of the ExpeShare project (2007 - 2009) is to make sharing of the experience easy and secure, right where and when it happens. Therefore novel concepts and networking technologies will be created in the project to facilitate sharing of information between mobile devices such as mobile phones, MP3s, DVD players, memory sticks and digital cameras. The project goes beyond web-based sharing of digital multimedia content such as pictures, videos, music and games. It will achieve its goals by innovative mobile peer-to-peer networking solutions, multimedia content and community management facilities as well as interaction solutions that utilise a variety of devices.

Experience is a complex phenomenon that goes beyond the picture or video clip that can easily be captured. The project will attempt to define this concept of experience and develop intuitive tools for capturing, managing, sharing and replaying experiences. Selecting the peer(s) or community with whom to share is another issue requiring innovative interactive solutions.

Peer-to-peer networks suffer from an image of illegality. They are, however, efficient means for distributing information. The ExpeShape project will take the peer-to-peer networking paradigm to the mobile world, while also suggesting ways to secure the legality of the exchanged content. Special attention will be given to the management of content rights and understanding the associated value chains.

The project will set up real-world pilots to evaluate the developed concepts. The pilot environments may be e.g. tourist areas, sports centres, public spaces and events or professional meetings.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
