Carlos Ribeiro, a researcher from IT in Aveiro, has developed a wireless technology called REVOsdr that allows real-time communication for future 5G systems. With applications that can range from outer space exploration to home appliances and entertainment, this 100% Portuguese technology promises to have a great impact not just in the big companies but also in our homes and daily lives. The project that was already awarded by the Carnegie Mellon University gave rise to the start-up TWEVO (Tactile Wireless Evolution) Lda.
The possibility of using this technology in space exploration might be TWEvo´most exceptional step. Carlos Ribeiro reveals that "one of the most extraordinary meetings I've had in the US was with the CEO of Astrobotics, one of the few North American companies that produces rovers used in the exploration of other planets”. “I couldn´t believe that the company which is creating autonomous vehicles to be used in the colonization of Mars was interested in our technology, "concludes the IT researcher.
However, TWEvo´s mostly focused on drones, more specifically, in trying to restrict the delays that occur in the transmission of data due to the video compression. Therefore, TWEvo's technology is the appropriate solution to achieve greater speed and precision, which will allow high-precision work.
