Privacy, safety and trust for ‘clearly connected’ devices

Release from Thu., February 14, 2013

At Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, the international webinos project demonstrates how open source technology ensures privacy and safety for connected devices, and puts you in control of your data.

Berlin, February 14, 2013 - The webinos project consortium invites all visitors of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Barcelona (Spain) to meet with their international project members and learn how its secure open source is transforming connected devices. The webinos technology is best described as a "next generation browser" connecting all of your devices across a secure personal cloud and adding powerful APIs that allow your browser to connect to the real world, and not just the virtual one.

webinos will showcase demonstrations in the App Planet Hall (8.1) at the W3C booth 8.1H49 as well as at Mobile Monday Athens' booth 8.1K30 (Greek pavilion).

The demos are:

  • webinos Connected Car
  • webinos Connected TV
  • webinos Connected Sensors
  • webinos Party Player
  • webinos Cross Device Payment
  • webinos Shopping and NFC
  • webinos Creative Notes
  • webinos Emergency Warning
  • webinos File Share

File ShareSecurity and privacy are at the heart of webinos. For that reason, the demos being shown use an “open” private cloud model for connecting all devices, large and small. Furthermore, the visitors of the booth will learn about the “Personal Data Gateway” which allows consumers to take explicit control over their data and their devices. A set of open protocols to ensure maximum interoperability and avoid lock-in to suppliers, as well as a set of powerful APIs that allow Web-based applications to fully integrate with the target devices (TV, Car or Mobile) are important components of the demo. The open source code Web platform itself is running on Arduino, Mac, PC, Linux and Android, and across all device types.
