MOSAIC 2B – Mobile Empowerment for the Socio-Economic Development in South Africa

2013-2015

2013-2015

MOSAIC 2B is a European research project, funded under the seventh framework program, aiming to develop and test a new framework that uses cloud-based applications, innovative low-cost internet delivery mechanisms (delay tolerant networks and opportunistic communications) and affordable mobile technologies to unlock new mobile business opportunities, especially in rural villages.

A consortium of European and South African partners builds upon the use case of mobile digital cinemas to run real life experiments demonstrating and evaluating the technological and economic viability of according innovations.

Concept and Objectives
MOSAIC 2B is aiming to develop and test a new framework that uses cloud-based applications, innovative low-cost internet delivery mechanisms and affordable mobile technologies to unlock new mobile business opportunities for micro-entrepreneurs, especially in rural villages.
In essence the MOSAIC 2B framework will provide technologies, such as delay tolerant networks and opportunistic communications, to implement:

  • low-cost mechanisms to deliver multimedia content via mobile devices.
  • mechanisms to identify and protect the copyright of the multimedia content delivered.
  • mobile business services to suit the needs of micro-entrepreneurs (e.g. Edutainment services to rural communities).
  • multi-cultural mobile interfaces (to visualize delivered content and to gather usage statistics, to identify cultural differences and specific requirements).
  • user-friendly visualization and analysis tools to integrate, correlate, fuse, analyze, process real-time data (from multiple sources and data-sets).
