Every Place Has a Story (EPHAS): Phase 2

Challenge Launch Date:


Challenge Deadline: 


Challenge Statement:

Collaborate and explore technologies related to an Ericsson Story telling platform incl Front End and Back End components involving but not exclusive to 5G, Edge, Augmented Reality (AR).

Project Partner:

Ericsson Canada Inc.


4 months starting in 21Q1

Available Funding:

Up to 500 000$ CAD

Project Details:

Ericsson is exploring technologies related to location-based storytelling that will leverage capabilities of 5G, Edge computing and Augmented Reality.

The project will build on an existing prototype and focus on integration with and advanced use of point cloud solutions to deliver a capable yet easy-to-use story telling experience. The project will also look to leverage 5G edge computing to improve system performance. The system will be validated by implementing selected use cases in the industrial as well as consumer space.

Without the combination of 5G, edge computing and the platform, it will be difficult for story tellers and consumers to connect in diverse locations.

Project Goals/Outcomes:

  • Deliver an enhanced, functioning platform and associated documentation as well as working with validation partners to validate technology in specific use cases.
  • Readiness to participate in further phases of the project.

Applicant Capabilities:

  • Experience in developing data applications executing on the Edge based on existing Edge frameworks.
  • Experience in front end development of applications for smart phones, tablets and PCs.
  • Experience in developing AR projects in Unity AR
  • Previous experience developing and deploying application on public clouds such as AWS and Azure.

Additional Information:

  • This technological challenge is part of a larger initiative

How to participate:

  • Each SME interested to participate to this challenge must have an Encqor iPaaS access (free) in order to understand the 5G technological stacks they will work with for the challenge. SMEs with no iPaaS access need to apply here and select ‘Ericsson Call for projects ‘Every place has a Story : Phase 2’ in the first drop down menu
