Three ECU research projects have been named as finalists in the 2008 Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards (WAITTA).
The WAITTA program showcases the best of WA's IT and telecommunications research developments, and ECU has been very successful this year, with more finalists than any other WA university.
The winners will be announced at an Awards Dinner on Friday, 13 March.
Dr Alfred Tan and Dr Douglas Chai have developed the Mobile Multi-Colour Composite (MMCC) 2D-Barcode, a finalist in the Innovation category.
Professor Daryoush Habibi and PhD student Justin Wyatt have developed the Wireless Token Network (WTN), to improve the quality of service for data streaming services that are time sensitive.
The WTN, also a finalist in the Innovation category, ensures the quality of voice and video-over-IP for applications such as Skype.
The third project, a new program to assist nursing students studying pharmacology, is a finalist in the Student Project category.
