The Bluetooth Conference System

During September 18 to 22, 2005 a new mobile service system, The Bluetooth Conference System, was introduced as a service to conference delegates participating in the International Wireless Summit held in Aalborg, Denmark. The system is the first of its kind.

The Bluetooth Conference System employs a database-based content management system for the publication and context-based delivery of content. All content is transferred via Bluetooth using network technology (BlipNet components) from BLIP Systems. Using the Bluetooth Conference System, the conference delegates have access to an up-to-date information service that carries information such as the conference program; tourist information; weather information; last minute information such as program changes, special offers, and news; and more. The system delivers content to its users according to time, location, and user profile.

The system encompasses Bluetooth base stations in the Aalborg Airport, the city's Congress and Culture Center, and in five participating hotels. The system caches content on the user's mobile phone so that content is always available.

The Bluetooth Conference System is the result of an exciting, collaborative venture among two companies in Aalborg, N'volve and BLIP Systems, Daisy, and CISS at Aalborg University. The project was supported financially by two foundations, Det Obelske Familiefond and Spar Nord Fonden, in addition to the participants.
