Förderjahr 2017 / Project Call #12 / ProjektID: 2110 / Projekt: SoniTalk
Matthias Zeppelzauer is a senior researcher at the Institute of Creative\Media/Technologies at St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences (Austria) since 2013. He received his PhD in Computer Science from Vienna University of Technology in 2011 with highest distinction. His research focuses on multimedia signal processing and machine learning. He is an active member of the research community and acts as a reviewer for numerous high-impact conferences and journals. Matthias received several performance scholarships from the Vienna University of Technology and was awarded by the Austrian Computer Society for outstanding achievements in the area of pattern recognition. He is currently leading the NetIdee Project "SoniControl" which focuses on the development of a privacy preserving app for mobile devices that notifies and blocks ultrasonic tracking information. Recently, he got a second NetIdee Project "SoniTalk" funded which is focusing on the establishment of a secure and privacy-oriented protocol for ultrasonic communication.
SoniTalk SDK and Demo App Launch!
We are pleased to announce that the SoniTalk SDK was released on GitHub !
SoniTalk - Towards a first open standard for data-over-sound
We submitted a first version of a protocol for communication via sound (and in particular via near-ultrasound) to the IETF. Our goal is to have it published as an Experimental RFC document. See: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-zeppelzauer-data-over...
SoniTalk Permission System
End-users should receive proper information about the use of ultrasonic communication in their apps. We offer three levels of permissions, and people can then decide how fine grained they want to control the emission and reception of messages.
SoniTalk prototype for Android is working !
These past months we were working on the SoniTalk prototype for Android, composed of an Encoder app to send messages and a Decoder app to receive them. Both components are now able to communicate with each other !
SoniTalk at Ars Electronica
From the 6th to the 10th of September we presented the prototype of SoniTalk at Ars Electronica Festival in Linz. A great opportunity to meet the users and listen to their ideas, wishes, feedback, ... Very valuable inputs for the next steps of our pr...
