Dr. Michel Fattouche
A keen understanding of technological trends and computer engineering
experience brought Michel Fattouche to invent Cellocate, a network-based
wireless communications device capable of a variety of uses.
Cellocate works once listening posts, wireless communication devices
designed to "listen," or pick up signals from beacons, have been installed
in a particular geographical area. At that point, a Cellocate beacon can
be attached to whatever a customer is interested in tracking, thus
enabling service. Potential services include wireless Internet services,
tracking systems, traffic monitoring or even on-line fleet management.
Educated formally as an electrical engineer, Fattouche studied at the
University of Toronto, earning his PhD in 1986. The same year, he accepted
a research and teaching position at the University of Calgary in the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Fattouche is currently on leave from the U of C, allowing himself to
dedicate more time to technology development at Cell-Loc, the company he co-founded in 1995, to further
his digital wireless communication technologies.
Long an industry authority on digital wireless communication technology,
Fattouche has published numerous articles on the subject and is the holder
of multiple patents in both Canada and the United States.
He is a member of Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and
Geophysicists of Alberta (APPEGA) and, in 2000, was named Ernst and
Youngs Prairie Entrepreneur of the Year in the Communications and
Cellocate is currently being produced by Calgary-based iQ2 Communications.
They purchased the license to commercialize the product in all of Alberta.
