Pilot application using MEMO technology (DAB + GSM) for the construction industry

The prototype illustrates mobile interactive multimedia services in the construction industry: one for accessing common information (e.g. regulations, codes of practices, technical assessments), another for accessing project related information (e.g. specifications, plans, progress reports). Beside the prototype, a description of end-user requirements and potential MEMO services in the construction industry is available.

The result is the prototype of a new interactive multimedia service for the construction industry. It is based on the generic MEMO platform and allows mobile professionals (e.g. on construction sites) to access Internet sites providing several types of information (regulations, standards, technical assessments on innovative products, etc.). It allows also to access project related information such as plans, technical notes, reports, etc. The DAB technology enables end-users to download rapidly large (multimedia) documents, thus increasing work efficiency on the site.

The other potential MEMO services that have been envisaged are characterised relatively to the information content, the content providers involved, the professional target and the professional context of use.
