Yesterday saw the official opening of the innovITS ADVANCE facility near Coventry, a unique test capability for  intelligent mobility -

Some 6 years ago or more VCE worked with UK Government to establish innovITS and has supported their Board over the years, as it secured multi-million pound funding to establish this world leading facility. Advanced realtime modelling and RF processing allows a vehicle to experience position-related multipath GPS reception as it drives around the test track, experiencing simulation of driving through a city or other (programmable) environment ... now all we need to do is work with innovITS and Ofcom to do the same with LTE !  There is some real potential here, which VCE is keen to make available to the global industry.  We will say some more about this at our members' day on 27th July.

Yesterday also saw the start of the Cambridge Wireless' 2011 Future of Wireless International Conference which this year is exploring "Networks Under Stress" - the opportunity of success. The conference dinner in the evening was attended by delegates from over 20 countries and addressed by the BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan Jones.  Some good networking going on, which will continue today no doubt.
