Olympic spirit at CeBIT with demand-driven information for everybody

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Zur Forderung Der Angewandten Forschung E.V. : 10 February, 2003  (Company News)
Outside the sports area the mobile digital companion named FLAME 2008 will offer predominant information-services about the town with its integrated roaming-concept. Once the user has defined his individual profile he will only receive the information he really needs.
Outside the sports area the mobile digital companion named FLAME 2008 will offer predominant information-services about the town with its integrated roaming-concept. Once the user has defined his individual profile he will only receive the information he really needs. The athletes will be most interested in the communication-function of FLAME 2008: during the games the participants have to live isolated in their villages. In Salt Lake City they were not even allowed to obtain letters from their families and friends. With FLAME 2008 they can get in e-mail-contanct with the world outside whereever and whenever they want to.

The digital companion FLAME 2008 works with wearable computers. A predecessor of this need-orientated information service has already been successfully used by journalists at the German Championships in Athletics 2002. In comparison to this version, FLAME 2008 will offer enlarged functions in any case. Digital companions like FLAME 2008 are developed in the Information Logistics Competency Center, which is a think tank created by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and one of the leading institutions for applied research in information logistics.

At CeBIT a prototype of FLAME 2008 will be shown in hall 3, number C03. Innovations for public institutions are presented at the eGovernment-Centre of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (hall 11, A40). The institute is also demonstrating its projects Teachware on Demand and Security Framework at the stand of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (hall 11, A24). For further information about FLAME 2008 and our CeBIT-activities please visite our websites www.sigsit.org and www.isst.fhg.de/cebit/ or contact us directly.
