Better antenna ‘former Philips CEO Roel Pieper comes in cars




The Dutch Antenna Company will use its last year presented Super Shaped antenna in cars. This is the first application for the antenna of the company’s former Philips CEO Roel Pieper.

Before the Dutch Antenna Company has an agreement concluded with Velio, a Hong Kong company that provides equipment to monitor cars. The companies have created a cabinet that fits into the diagnostic port under the dashboard of cars. Thanks to the antenna according to the companies a stable connection and may locker data on car forwarding via mobile internet.

The ‘SuperShaped’ antenna has found a different application than was the original intention. Pieper wanted to wear his technology to makers of smartphones, appeared at the presentation almost a year ago, though the company already then in-car systems mentioned as an option.

That the antennas are more efficient, would be due to the Gielis formula. This formula, which the 51-year-old Dutch scientist Johan Gielis doctorate a few years back at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, contained natural forms such as flowers and starfish in a mathematical formula. Gielis itself as a product planner involved in the business. This formula has been used previously in graphics applications for rendering images. Thanks to the formula that can be done with less power.

By varying the shapes and dimensions could be provided, the antenna signals at different frequencies and make it as “ultra-wideband’ antennas as possible, so that only one antenna is needed for, among other Wi-Fi, GPS and GSM.

Behind the company are included the investor Marcel Boekhoorn who invested earlier example Telfort. As director Roel Pieper attracted, who was previously CEO of Philips and the computer company Tandem led to a takeover by Compaq.

Boekhoorn Pieper worked together with the company The 5th Force that a compression would exploit that would have been invented by a Dutch engineer. Engineer, Jan Sloot, however, died a day before he was to deposit the source code of its technology at the notary. Or that technology really existed, has never been demonstrated.
