MIcrosystems platform for MObile Services and Applications

Objective

The Microsystems platform for MObile Services and Applications (MiMOSA) is an integrated project done by a strong and synergetic consortium. MiMOSA creates a new open system platform for context-aware mobile services and applications. The approach is mobile phone based, providing the users with a smooth transition from current mobile services to ambient intelligence services. In the area of short-range connectivity, MiMOSA positions itself to low-cost, low-bit rate territory that can be set up with relatively modest investments in the infrastructure. The main focus of MiMOSA is the development of novel low-power microsystems, in particular wireless sensors exploiting the RFID technology, highly integrated readers/writers for RFID tags and sensors, low-power MEMS-based RF components and modules, low-power short-range radios, advanced integration technology, and novel MEMS sensors for context sensitivity and intuitive, user-friendly interfaces.

MiMOSA extends the area of telecommunication business to ambient intelligence. The MiMOSA project is organized in 6 work packages including management. Its design approach is strongly human-centred. End users and application developers participate in designing and evaluating how ambient intelligence and short-range communication with environment could be best utilised in the everyday life. User feedback guides the design of the core components of ambient intelligence. To demonstrate the generic characteristics of the platform, MIMOSA develops specific applications with particular emphasis on physical browsing, health monitoring, intelligent housing, fitness/sports, context awareness for ambient intelligence and intuitive user interfaces. The defined approach and results will be disseminated and will lead to innovation in other application domains. Tomorrow's ambient intelligence will be enabled by generic technologies such as proposed by the MiMOSA vision in which cultural, ethical and/or gender issues are directly addressed.
