Slowly yet steadily, the world of tech is moving towards a completely wireless future. We all remember a time when everything was wired, and cables ruled the roster but now, going wireless is the name of the game. There are numerous devices that use wireless communication to transmit and receive data. However, there are certain applications that are critical and require ultra-low latency, which can’t be achieved via traditional wireless means. Here’s where the winner of EIT Digital Challenge in the Digital Tech category comes in.
Winning the first prize at EIT Digital Challenge, R3 Communications is a startup from Berlin that offers an exciting device called EchoRing, which is said to be almost too good to be wireless. EIT Digital, Europe’s leading accelerator, hosted the competition to identify innovative ‘deep tech’ scaleups of the continent. Dr. Mathias Bohge, Managing Director of R3 Communications, received the prize at the EIT Digital Accelerator where over 279 scaleups competed.
