IP protection




Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
Wireless transmission and reception methods and the relative transceivers apparatuses are known such as for example Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Such methods and apparatuses can be used in a predetermined area substantially limited in which normal radio frequencies have not adequate performance. Moreover, in such known methods, the transmission and reception is based on a communication protocol normally in conformity with ISO-OSI model (International Standard Organization – Open System Interconnection). 





What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
A transmission and reception method according to the present invention is used for the wireless transmission and reception of signals between a first transceiver device and at least a second transceiver device. The transmission and reception method provides a step of distributing a plurality of intermediate transceiver devices disposed in a non uniform manner between the first and the second device so as to form a chain or strip of linear transmission and reception. 





What is the potential for further research?
The idea behind WiWi can be extended to other particular, non-linear, topologies. In the published papers tree topologies have already be considered, although never tested with the prorotype. For example, rings, fault-tolerant double rings, grids could be studied. 






What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)
It is already a P.C.T. application. 






What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
It is already a P.C.T. application.The costs of further protection depend on where the application will be confirmed as national or regional phases.







What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
Based on the PCT patent search report all the filed claims are patentable being based on novelty and inventive step.
