On 12 April, in the run-up to CEBIT 2018 in Hannover, the CEBIT Roadshow @ Station F in Paris offered a taster of the key topics coming up at the world’s largest exhibition dedicated to digital technologies. The preview event also included an exciting competition, with 12 specially selected B2B digital startups getting the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges in a bid to secure a turnkey trade fair stand in Hannover. In the end, the panel was most impressed by STIMSHOP and its new ultrasound-based wireless communication technology. This Paris-based start-up aims to make the most of its fantastic opportunity to win over a huge international audience with the benefits of its concept.
The patented ultrasound signal STIMcom from STIMSHOP is an exclusive ultrasound protocol for transferring data wirelessly. It is intended for use wherever conventional radio waves - which are essential for WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G - are either ineffective or not permitted, such as in potentially explosive atmospheres. Conventional speakers and microphones - like those found everywhere in devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers – can be used as transmitters and receivers to send signals. That means this new technology could establish itself in a very short space of time and spread far and wide. The next step for STIMSHOP is to build a plug&play connector with STIMcom inside as a simple means of integrating the new communication technology into devices that are not already compatible.
