Apart of that based on measurements we elaborate such models by means of which inter-effect of various mobile technologies can be planned. We wish to take into account also the effects of other, non mobile, but broadcasting technologies (e.g. radar). In view of realization of access network modeling of the behavior of the radio technology, elaboration of electromagnetic field calculations, furthermore the possibly more exact knowledge of wave propagation features seem to be important for the cell design Hungarian-Japanese Conference

  31. MIKProfessional program (2.) • Improving quality of the radio transmission • Goal of the project is research, development and implementation of techniques which enable increase efficiency of radio data transmission. The activities cover among others intelligent antenna systems, investigation of wave forms of radio interface and B3G detection techniques • Defense against adverse phenomena affecting propagation of radio waves and aimed to parlay of these effects methods have a great significance in view of broadband, economically effective and environment saving radio data transmission.

The artificial speech functions are also included into access techniques (e.g. automatic text read out, control by speech, speech recognition etc.), which enables also integration of handicapped people into the information society Hungarian-Japanese Conference

  41. MIKProfessional program (9.) • Studies on user’s behaviour • Preliminary goal of the project is wide investigation of user's behaviour and use of results in other projects of the Centre. • Spread of various mobile technologies affects and changes behaviour of users. The Internet and the next generation mobile technologies have been bringing unimaginable before applications and services, these will affect significantly behaviour of the users, again. Behaviour of individual users is different, but contain similar elements too on daily, weekly or even yearly level, which can be shown up by appropriate methods (e.g. sociological, network analyses, multivariable statistical and data mining methods). Knowledge of these behaviour samples promotes identification of various user groups and providing suitable for them electronic services and required content, prediction of expected acceptance of new applications. Handling of more and more complicate end equipment can be provided only by adequate multimodal user surfaces. Hungarian-Japanese Conference
