Description

The main purpose of the project was to study, design, develop and demonstrate a prototype system, which achieved the efficient and self-adaptive transmission of static or animated images between GPRS / UMTS mobile terminals without the intervention of any particular network infrastructure apart from the mobile communication network. The project integrated the technology of digital moving image coding (MPEG, MJPEG, etc.) and broadband mobile communications (GPRS / UMTS), in order to offer novel and cost-effective wireless solutions for wireless surveillance and security systems.

The applications were supported by a combination of the following technologies i) video encoding and ii) new generation mobile communications, opening up new horizons in the provision of advanced surveillance and security services. The basic research objectives of the project included the design of a fully-mobile-to-mobile architecture for video streaming transmission over GPRS / UMTS mobile networks, and the incorporation of transmission rate self-adjustment techniques, based on the varying conditions of the mobile network.

For the demonstration and evaluation of the theoretical results, a prototype system was implemented that integrated these two technologies, supporting easy and efficient supervision and control of remote sites.
