The Multimedia and Telematics Services Group (MTSG) is part of the Wire Communications Laboratory (WCL) of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department of the University of Patras. Today it occupies 11 persons as researchers, lectures, postgraduate students and support personnel, who are mostly funded by research projects. Its equipment consists of educational systems, modern computational systems and workstations for research and development of telecommunications and informatics products.
MTSG began its activities in the area of classic telephony systems and expanded to the modern state-of-the-art technologies of digital telecommunications switches and networks, multimedia systems and communications, telematics services, digital speech and image processing, computational linguistics and electro-acoustics. These technologies properly combined offer the capability to develop integrated telecommunication/information systems supporting natural language man-machine interaction.
The educational activity of MTSG includes today the provision of 7 semester lectures in the areas of Telecommunications, Informatics, Multimedia seminars, diploma and theses. MTSG is also active in postgraduate studies, and it also participates in Engineers’ continuing education programs in the area of the design of digital telecommunication products.
WCL’s research activity is mainly application-oriented. During the last years, it included the areas described below and it had produced important results. This activity is funded from the EU, the Greek Secretariat for Research and Technology, the OTE (Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation), the Greek Ministry of Education and the Industry and it also leads to publications and presentations to major international conferences and scientific magazines. More specifically, MTSG is involved in the:
• design and implementation up to industrial prototype of digital telecommunication products
• design and implementation of telecommunications - telematic services
• design and implementation of multimedia networks and user oriented telematic services (tele-medicine, tele-education, tele-working, etc)
• optimisation of telecommunication networks
• implementation of protocols for digital communications in medicine (support of the DICOM standard)
• medical images processing
• modern technologies voice networks (ISDN, ATM, etc)
• Next Generation networks
Especially, in the area of telemedicine MTSG has focused on:
• User-behaviour modelling based on the outcomes of previous EU-funded programmes (RACE, TELEMED and TELEMATICS).
• Development of application prototype over different technologies telecommunication networks (ISDN, IP and ATM).
• Interconnection of medical devices to the main application prototype
• Market research to estimate the user acceptance
• Evaluation of application prototype by end-users.
• Trials of the final product in real conditions
• Dissemination of the results.
