ITTC Project

Interoperability Testing of Bluetooth Devices: Prototype & Implementation

Project Award Date: 08-15-2003


The Bluetooth Specification is full of possibilities for product manufacturers, and it allows implementers to refine how a device is thought of and created.
ITTC intends to fill a role complementary to the certification process and aims to measure the interoperability and ease of use of Bluetooth products. It is a "top down" approach, testing devices the same way that users will use the devices. Researchers will develop test suites and perform those corresponding tests with Bluetooth devices.
This strategy consists of two phases: prototype and implementation. The prototype phase will explore the foundations and present concepts and preliminary results. The implementation phase will expand testing, fully implement the test application tools, and generate comprehensive data.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
