The ITEA 2 GEODES project addressed power-consumption issues - namely, power reduction - in complex distributed communication systems, from handheld devices to wireless sensor networks. At the end of the project in 2011, the review pointed a number of highly promising exploitation prospects. So, three years on, has this promise been fulfilled?
The simple answer is a resounding yes. In short, the results of the project continue to spawn a series of successful spin-offs, services and products in all kinds of areas, including wireless network communication, TV set-top boxes and video-surveillance systems.
