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 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...

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...
