... Awareness of the existing gap between R&D results and its productive application has led the founding partners, João Matos and Ricardo Abreu from the Instituto de Telecomunicações in Aveiro, to create Built‐In Lda.

Following their line of work over the past years, the main focus of the microcompany is the industrialization of DRSC technology (Dedicated Short Range Communications) that is used, for instance, in automatic road tolling. The industrialization process involves a partnership with a company from the road infrastructures area. By building up experience on hardware design and development, with a special emphasis on wireless communications, Built‐In exists to make its client’s ideas become reality.
