Telematics & New Services

The Lab of Distributed Systems and Telematics works on the developments of advanced Telematic applications, focusing in Open and Distance Learning (both Synchronous and Asynchronous), Teleconference, and Voice over IP (VoIP). The Lab contacts research in advance Telematics services with the use of Real Time Protocols (RTP, RTCP, RSVP), multicast technologies (simulcast, multicast congestion control, multicast of layered video) and new session initialisation protocols (SIP) over next generation networks. In addition, the Lab has significant activities in the area of Virtual Conference Services. The above technologies will support the next generation Telematics applications.
