SignalGeneriX has grown out of several decades of industrial experience and consulting mainly in the UK. It was formed in Cyprus with a vision to become a leader in delivering state-of-the-art Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and Communications solutions. The company is deeply involved in Research and Development and has amassed a broad portfolio of intellectual property rights covering core signal processing algorithms, telecommunication networks, and wireless sensor applications. The company’s advanced DSP algorithms and processes, its ultra-low-powered hardware, novel smart antenna components and remote monitoring platform are incorporated in commercial systems and processes for modern high-tech industries such as the Communications, Medical, Security, Military and Environmental Monitoring industries as well as more traditional industries such as Agriculture and Farming.
SignalGeneriX is actively participating in various national and European projects in its area of expertise. The company has recently completed two FP-6 projects where applied its DSP expertise in the development of a new ultrasound biosensor for the early detection of prostate cancer (TAMIRUT - IST project), and exploited its advanced knowledge of smart antenna algorithms for the development an indoor wireless localisation system (RESOLUTION - IST project). SignalGeneriX secured two FP7 for the benefit of SME projects for developing the FPGA processing board and image processing algorithms of a portable asbestos detector device and for investigating ultra low-power wireless body-area-networks (Wear-a-BAN SME Association project). The company has also recently been awarded the EUREKA label for its participation in a Medea+ project in the area of high speed communications and a Eurostars project in the area of robotics. The most recent EU project that the company is involved in an FP7 integrated project in the area of medical body area networks. The company is also participating as coordinator or partner in various national projects, funded by the Research Promotion Foundation, in the area of wireless communications, image and video processing and compression, wireless sensor networks, infrastructure monitoring and NDE.

The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the two national engineering schools in Switzerland. It delivers Engineer and PhD degrees in 12 engineering fields. The School has a staff of about 2400 people including professors, scientists and administrative personnel. The participating EPFL laboratory to IcyHeart is the Embedded Systems Laboratory (EPFL-ESL) headed by Prof. David Atienza Alonso and consisting of 18 members. The ESL personnel have a long and deep experience in embedded system design and optimization methodologies for them, and have been interacting with companies such as Sun Microsystems, Philips-NXP, IBM and Freescale on these topics. For several years now, ESL has been active in the design and optimization of wireless body sensors-enabled personal electrocardiogram (ECG) mHealth systems. ESL multi-disciplinary team spans the various disciplines needed for a truly ultra-low-power design, namely wireless body area protocol optimization, ultra-low-power dedicated signal processor design and low-complexity, energy-aware and real-time embedded ECG signal processing. In particular, ESL has the demonstrated the first real-time compressed sensing-based personal electrocardiogram monitoring system, within the Nano-Tera project “BioCS-Node”. Relevantly, it has also demonstrated a real-time wavelet-based electrocardiogram delineation system.
