ICT Results is an editorial service created for the European Commission to showcase EU-funded ICT research and activities. ICT is currently charged with the mission of making European industry more competitive by conducting research in technology, science and industry. ICT Results was formed in 2003 and reorganized in 2007 for the purpose of creating a marketing, editing, research and communication entity. ICT's primary purpose is to account for funding and communicate to members, the public and governments the nature of their research in technology and science. ICT Results has a permissive attitude toward republishing their work and some stock photos. ICT Results only asks for a “Source Credit” and notification of the use of their work via the drop-down e-mail form. This is for the purpose of tracking interest in their work.
Cut-and-paste simplicity for computer animation
Tools developed by European researchers bring cut-and-paste simplicity to gaming and animation. Users will be able to cut-and-paste complex elements like emotion, tone of voice and facial expression, making compelling new ...
Virtual island could revolutionize tourist trade sector
Three-dimensional versions of Mediterranean islands will be updated virtually automatically with current information from a range of public and private databases. The European research project may launch a “revolution” ...
Light-generating transistors to power labs on chips
(PhysOrg.com) -- What started out as 'blue-sky' thinking by a group of European researchers could ultimately lead to the commercial mass production of a new generation of optoelectronic components for devices ranging from ...
Europe's first mobile robotic bin-on-call
European researchers have built a robot for 'on-demand' rubbish collection - just make a call and it will soon arrive at your door. It's ideal for collecting waste in the narrow streets of many historical towns.
The brain: probing its deep mystery
(PhysOrg.com) -- We know more about the cosmos than we do about the human brain, but work by European researchers will now allow scientists to probe further into the mysteries of our grey matter.
Machine-learning revolutionises software development
(PhysOrg.com) -- Automation technology has revolutionised the fine-tuning needed to maximise software performance on devices such as mobile phones.
The internet of cars
(PhysOrg.com) -- An internet of cars promises a road system designed around cooperative technology enabling each element of the traffic system -- cars, drivers, traffic lights, signs -- to cooperate proactively to create ...
Mixed reality cookbook
What we perceive in the world is highly influenced by what we are looking for. That is old news. Now European researchers have used this theory to create a convincing and engaging 'mixed reality', and they have put together ...
When noise becomes the signal
(PhysOrg.com) -- European researchers have developed a new class of electronics that uses noise -- normally a problem -- as part of the signal. It means better, faster electronics.
Slam dunk for future smart robots
(PhysOrg.com) -- 'What does the world look like' and 'where am I' are two questions robots must solve if they are to act autonomously in an unknown environment. Work by European researchers will help future robot generations ...
