SmartBlaster

Abstract


Start: 01-02-2003
Completion: 04-11-2003
Type: EU Research Project

Objective

Multiplayer games have become very popular in the PC market. Almost none of the current games are shipped without some support for multiplayer gaming. At the same time mobile devices are becoming more powerfull and popularity of games on these platforms increases.

However there are almost no games that support multiplayer gaming, derspite the multiple options of these devices to connect with each other and build mobile ad hoc networks. Reasons for this lack of multiplayer support are the high diversity of mobile devices as well as the different protocols and their properties that these devices support.

With "SmartBlaster" we developed a multiplayer game for several different platforms that is using several different channels (Bluetooth, IrDa, 802.11) to communicate between them. We thank Microsoft Research for their support of this project.
