The global aim of MIMOSA is to make Ambient Intelligence a reality by developing a mobile-phone centric open technology platform. In order to technically achieve it, MIMOSA's concentrates on the following technical objectives:
Enabling platform for Ambient Intelligence
In the MIMOSA vision, the personal mobile phone is chosen as the trusted intelligent user interface to Ambient Intelligence and a gateway between the sensors, the network of sensors, the public network and the Internet. MIMOSA develops an open technology platform for implementing ambient intelligence in different application areas. The well-defined platform allows a fast and focused development of both basic technology solutions as well as system-level applications and services. MIMOSA focuses to develop micro- and nanosystems in several areas of the MIMOSA open platform (indicated using framed boxes in the figure below). Examples of micro and nanosystems developments by MIMOSA are (Environment domain) wireless remote-powered and autonomous sensors exploiting RFID, low-power radios exploiting RFMEMS, (User domain) microsystem-based intuitive user interfaces, MEMS based user-activity and physiological sensors, (Phone domain) MEMS-based inertial, magnetic and audio sensors.
