Desired outcome

As a participant of the upcoming symposium “GCCIR Matchmaking Symposium” organized by the GCCIR and Innoget next 19 November 2018 in Barcelona (Spain), the company Baseband Technologies Inc. is seeking for European partners to meet at the Barcelona event to develop a joint R&D project.

Baseband Technologies is the leading software-based low power GPS receiver research house. While Baseband Technologies’ core strength has been in advanced GPS algorithmic research and development, the company is currently working to combine blockchain and GPS technologies for the next generation location-based applications.

Using Baseband Technologies’ receiver technologies, location-based products can obtain rapid GPS position fixes using extremely low power. The same ultra-low power technology is ideally suited for Wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) products that find standard GPS chipsets too power hungry.

Ahead of the GCCIR Matchmaking Symposium, Baseband Technologies is looking for multiple partners to spearhead the development of an elegant blockchain architecture and then integrating the company’s technology into different use cases. Baseband’s ultimate goal is to offer token sales in the form of an ICO in the near future which will likely be held in the EU due to its friendlier regulations.

In case you are interested in meeting Baseband Technologies Inc. at the Barcelona event to discuss a potential collaboration, please register for free to the symposium through the orange button provided above.

Details of the Technology Call

Baseband Technologies’ Ultra Low-Power GPS receiver technology adds geolocation function to small battery operated devices without impacting the battery life Compared to standard GPS chipsets, Baseband’s receiver consumers a fraction of the energy by utilizing two in-house developed patents to:

  1. Capture a position using as little as 2 milliseconds and,
  2. Predict satellite orbits using an advanced 28 Day extended Ephemeris algorithm.

In terms of product life cycle, the company’s current ultra-low power GPS technology is in the Technology Demonstration stage where they have already attracted two well-known chip manufacturers and a few consumer/industrial electronics manufacturers to integrate their receiver into their products. The company anticipates a worldwide product launch from one of these companies within the next 3 months and production will begin in Q2 2019.

In this way, Baseband’s next push is to add blockchain features to their ultra-low power GPS technology to solve a critical location-based problem that can be used for multiple market segments..

Baseband has created a cutting-edge concept using the latest technological achievements and proprietary GPS techniques that operate at the intersection of Internet of Things and blockchain. To realize the company’s vision, they are looking for multiple partners to spearhead the development of an elegant blockchain architecture and then integrating the company’s technology into different cases. In particular, Baseband is looking for multiple partners to participate in the following areas:

  1. Blockchain developers
    1. Blockchain architectural design
    2. Logistics & supply chain
    3. Personal identity
    4. Asset tracking
    5. Geolocation games
  2. MCU (microcontroller) manufacturers
    1. IoT (Internet of Things)
    2. Wearables
    3. Asset tracking
