LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six UK mobile companies are battling it out to become the UK’s most innovative mobile company. As part of the Smart UK Project, the six finalists pitch their innovation to a panel of judges at Mobile World Congress 2014.
The six finalists are:
- 5TILES from ETAOI Systems is a keyboard for smartphones and wearable devices that has only five keys. It uses 70% less space on screen than traditional QWERTY keyboards and is simple to learn.
- This app allows mobile devices to capture and reconstruct in 3D what they see in the live video camera feed. The processing happens on the device without the help of additional hardware or external software. The results are a cross between a photo and a 3D model.
- RouteShoot enables anyone, anywhere in the world, to create and share route-referenced video using their smartphone. With full 1080p HD video recording, mapping and GPS functions on the latest generation of smartphones, RouteShoot continuously geo-tags entire journeys at the touch of a button.
- Cyber security specialists SQR Systems has developed a combination of encryption and compression technology for secure and optimised transmission of voice, video and data over low bandwidth networks. The encryption process takes place before the data is transmitted, ensuring content is not exposed to cyber-attacks.
- People carry their mobile with them everywhere, making it a suitable device for management of patients. uMotif’s secure, cloud-based mobile and web apps combine patient-led data inputs, sensor data, health data sets and a range of engaging content to help patients track, monitor and manage their health, while retaining 100% data ownership.
- ViewRanger has built a digital platform and global social network for outdoor enthusiasts. Based around its GPS navigation app and MyViewRanger web portal, users can discover, plan, navigate, track and share their outdoor pursuits and trails.
The six finalists will pitch to the Smart UK Project judges, including Mike Short (Telefonica Europe), Cornelia Calugar-Pop (Deloitte), Antony Walker (techUK), Tom Cheesewright (Futurologist), Roy Gunter (Mobility Ventures) and Neil Crockett (Connected Digital Economy Catapult).
