Chirp

Send any data with sound.

Chirp technology encodes data into a series of audible or inaudible near-ultrasonic pitches and tones to form a ‘sonic barcode’. Data is encoded on a sending device before being transmitted, over the air, to a receiving device, or group of devices where it is decoded.

  • Chirp's technology suite of interoperable standard SDKs works on many different technology platforms and they can develop custom SDKs for our partner's specific requirements. Powerful error correction and patent-pending decoder technology makes Chirp technology bulletproof.


    Why audio data encoding
    • Does not require an existing audio signal to operate on.
    • Encode and decode information in real-time, without external components
    • Good fit for compact, dynamic payloads - appropriate for creating network-like communication links between devices
    • Relatively high throughput making it suitable security-critical applications


    Developer friendly
    Easy to set up and integrate in an app or product.

  • Chirp: Activision Blizzard 'Skylanders Imaginators' Offline Character Transfer
    - Provide a real world experience to ‘Skylanders Imaginators’ players, allowing them to share characters that they have created in the game with a companion mobile app where it can then be turned into a 3D figure or a trading card- Enable sharing whilst game and companion mobile app are offline to meet the requirement of parents who prefer not to connect their kid’s console to the internet for safety reasons- Accommodate the transfer of millions of variable designs, abilities, catchphrases and musical themes that an ‘Imaginators’ character consists of- Remove dependency on console manufacturers to provide connectivity - Optimise ‘Toys to Life’ revenue opportunities for Activision through ease and reliability of sharing
    Chirp: Equipment Monitoring/ Data reporting for Integrated Energy Company
    Our client (confidential), a major provider of Nuclear Energy in the UK and Europe were looking to enable equipment monitoring and data reporting capabilities in their nuclear facilities for increased operational efficiency. In these facilities, the use of Radio Frequency based networking is prohibited and therefore, an alternative solution was required.
    Chirp: Amdocs Digital Commerce and Payments experience
    - Enable Amdocs to provide their telco and retailer customers with a next generation digital commerce and payments experience. - Power the transfer of data through the entire consumer purchase journey originating from a marketing message to a purchase in store and in ongoing loyalty programmes. - Ensure compatibility with a multitude of devices including multi-media broadcast, smartphone / tablets and retailer ePOS and customer management systems - including those without other networking or connectivity capabilities.

    Arduino
    Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. All this is defined by a set of instructions programmed through the Arduino software. Arduino was born at the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. As soon as it reached a wider community, the Arduino board started changing to adapt to new needs and challenges, differentiating its offer from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT applications, wearable, 3D printing, and embedded environments.
