Awesome drones for uploading exclusive photos by using selfie ?! it maybe come true anytime soon.III initiated the Innovative Digital Convergence Value-added Service Awarded ESNC 2016 Asia Overall Champion.
Research and development technologies of Taiwan once again shine on global stage! With the support of Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs, III Executive Vice President Pao-Chung, Ho supervised the Digital Convergence Crucial Technology and System Development project. III Smart Network System Institute R&D Managing Director Frank Chee-Da, Tsai, Group Leader Hsin-Yi, Lai, teamed up with the group constructed by one of the students of associated unit NCTUEE, Mr. Yun Chen, Tsai, to come up with the service "Digital Media Convergence and Drone Video Capturing with Social Networking – Sharing & Profiting" which out stood in rigorous competition and won ESNC 2016 Asia Overall Champion. The winners of the 13th ESNC award were announced globally and accepted their awards on 25th, Oct (European time).
The technology derived from youngster's eagerness to show themselves off. By applying the latest hit UAVs, the technology uses panoramic and individual high resolution film equipment as well as Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) locating devices so that the participants of huge events such as New Year's Eve Concert, the concerts of pops stars, carnivals and so on could throw away their annoying selfie sticks and enjoy the vivid images shot and provided by UAVs. Furthermore, there would be no worries for photos with only one big head assorting with disturbing background, or one that is so small submerged in the crowd.
Through cloud service platform, users can access to the cameras carried by UAVs to shoot the panorama of the events as well as personal profile videos. Furthermore, after inviting their friends downloading the App on social networking websites, users can immediately share the hottest personal close-up short film and live pictures so as to fulfill their desperate need to express themselves within their groups on social network websites.
III Smart Network System Institute R&D Managing Director Frank Chee-Da, Tsai, who represented the team to receive the honor, indicated that the research and development team dedicated to digital convergence related technologies as well as solution packages. By applying IP based technologies, the team is able to provide video associated emerging value added services. The system combines two important elements, UAVs and social network, to construct a cross industry integrated cloud service platform. It is possible to create a whole new digital convergence service experience by propagating through social network and expanding the audience of live broadcasting as well as to increase audience stickiness by checking in on social websites while live broadcasting.
As a matter of fact, III Smart Network System Institute has long dedicated to the research and development of digital convergence technologies. The research and development fields cover not only video based compound multi-media service which is able to optimize the industry structure of domestic video service, but also recently enter the ICT technology related domains such as machine learning, wearable device computing, community virtual reality, and service robot systems, etc. It is expected that the manufacturing industry of Taiwan could combine its strength with emerging applications and social network service to provide added value. Furthermore, by strengthening cross domain core technology integration, there is the possibility to initiate various innovative services and applications. Winning the award, III expects that the innovative services provided by Taiwanese companies could get the attention from around the globe. In the future, III will dedicate more R&D resources to service innovation so as to expand the soft power of Taiwan to the global market.
【European Satellite Navigation Competition】
European Satellite Navigation Competition（ESNC）is designed to encourage the exploration and use of satellite navigation for applicable business purposes. Participants need to provide innovative ideas associated with domains such as aviation safety, railroad, shipping, road driving assistance system, inland waterway, ambulance, police, firefighting, search and rescue, dangerous good tracking, etc. The participating regions have now covered more than 20 areas across 5 continents globally.
