PALCOM, Palpable benefits for high-tech start-ups and European universities

46 views

This video about PALCOM is part of a package that shows five examples of trans-national EU-funded research projects involving SMEs. This includes both SMEs with their own in-house research capacity and those who need to acquire new knowledge from research service providers such as universities or research organisations. The case studies cover a variety of sectors: food, security, environment, electronics and material engineering. The aim of PALCOM is to produce the software and the hardware needed to develop the right responses to any need for information encountered in emergency situations. PALCOM starts off with a real life situation which needs computer backup and intends to develop electronic applications which meet the needs of their future users 100%. The PALCOM team follow fire services, doctors and police to find out more about the problems typically encountered. This work approach can be applied to any type of electronic development. The PALCOM team is busy on a whole series of original applications in the world of surgery, landscape architecture, helping premature babies, in the field of major accidents, physical therapy for Down syndrome children and support for pregnant women. The first line of thought for the PALCOM team is to design a wireless system to give professionals on the ground full, instant information, which, above all, is accessible. This rests on the assumption that in crisis situations, time saved can really save lives.
