At the World Nuclear Exhibition 2016 (WNE 2016) that takes place in a Parisian suburb Le Bourget from June, 28 to June, 30 Samsung Electronics and Intersoft Eurasia OJSC – a Skolkovo Technopark resident – showcased the core for personal radiation monitoring device DO-RA. Core based on the proprietary technologies. This innovative device measures background radiation level of the environment and by synchronizing with a smartphone shows this information on a display using a specialized mobile app. The new product was made on the basis of Tizen secure mobile platform with the application of personal environment and food radiation monitoring technology.
DO-RA is an affordable and compact dosimeter-radiometer, equipped with solid silicon detector DoRaSi, reading electronics and energy-efficient components. In its standard configuration the device measures MED of ionizing radiation and provides broadcast data transmission over Bluetooth Low Energy profile (BLE). The first version of DO-RA allows to exchange data between smartphones based on OS Tizen over a sound channel with data integrity and adequacy check. In perspective it is planned to increase measuring capabilities of the DO-RA.Core base version by adding specific sensors and expanding data communication channel to Bluetooth 2.0 by means of hybrid Bluetooth.
The showcased DO-RA device functions on the basis of Tizen mobile platform and Samsung Z3 smartphone. The mobile platform enables effective use of a hi tech pack – DO-RA measuring device and a smartphone for solving any monitoring and analytical issues.
“Recently we presented a corporate version of Samsung Z3 smartphone based on Tizen, which was a very important step for us in the OS extension in Russia. Today we are happy to start the new phase of our work and demonstrate DO-RA technology as yet another innovative solution made in cooperation with a Russian company. I am sure, that the new device is going to become common use in our country and will provide Russian consumers with additional benefits,” –commented Alexander Terekhov, Head of B2B Mobile at Samsung Electronics in Russia.
The World Nuclear Exhibition is being held since 2014 and is one of the most significant events in the area of nuclear solutions and innovations harnessed for peaceful uses. The main theme of WNE 2016 is The role of nuclear industry in the global energy mix. As expected more that 10 000 people from 71 countries will visit the exhibition of nearly 700 innovative solutions. The event is organized by the Association of French Nuclear Export Industries (AIFEN).
“The Intersoft Eurasia’s project is a vivid example of Skolkovo Foundation commitment to supporting commercialization of radiotechnology solutions and solutions in B2C segment,” – said Igor Karavaev, Vice-president and CEO of Cluster Nuclear Technologies at Skolkovo Foundation.

WhatsApp’s voice calling feature is available for Android users, and it looks like customers who purchased the Samsung Z1 have something to rejoice about as WhatsApp for Tizen has been updated with voice calling support as well. If you’re the owner of the Samsung Z1, you’ll just need to launch the WhatsApp app and you will see the new feature available for your use.
At this point in time Samsung Z1 owners will only be able to call Android devices who has the updated feature, or other Samsung Z1 owners. This effectively brings the voice calling feature to two platforms – Android and Tizen, with iOS users left having to wait for their update which has been scheduled for a rollout in the coming weeks.
As pointed out by SamMobile, the reason why the Tizen version of WhatsApp managed to get this feature ahead of a more “prominent” platform like iOS is because the Tizen version of WhatsApp is an emulated version of the Android app. This means that it is possible for Tizen users to receive the same updates and features as its Android counterpart without too much fuss or hassle.
Like we said iOS users will still have to wait a couple of weeks for their feature, and there’s still no word on when voice calling will be rolled out to users of BlackBerry or Windows Phone platforms.
