Software & Demos

Available Software
PLaTHEA SourceForge The official website of the PLaTHEA localization system open source project. The project also contains an up-to-date version of the PErIcLeS performance evaluation platform.

PErIcLeS over PLaTHEA Demo (2011) This demo provides an old distribution of PLaTHEA localization system (without source code) with the first version of PErIcLeS performance evaluator.  A sample evaluation can be performed offline.
PLaTHEA Demo (2014) This demo provides a distribution of PLaTHEA localization system (without source code) with an integrated PErIcLeS performance evaluator.  A sample evaluation can be performed offline.


Currently Involving Projects
VOICE is a virtual business incubator for startups. Its uniqueness is that it is globally accessible around the clock, open to anyone with an interesting idea, unlimited in space, open and practically boundless in providing services, information and practical guidance, in contrast to the traditional - physical - incubators.

 Past Projects
TOBI is a large European integrated project which will develop practical technology for brain-computer interaction (BCI) that will improve the quality of life of disabled people and the effectiveness of rehabilitation.
