Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Artificial vision system for the semaphoric control of the access to parking and garages, through the monitoring of pedestrians.The research group “Intelligent Vehicles and Traffic Technologies” of the Automation Department of the University of Alcalá has developed a procedure for the semaphoric control of the access roads to parkings and garages by monitoring pedestrians using artificial vision. It is a road safety system that ensures that the exit access of the vehicles from the parking is performed safely for pedestrians, by monitoring the different access points to the parking, using a stereoscopic vision system with infrared lighting. The images provided by the stereoscopic vision system are processed by a computer, obtaining information regarding the presence of pedestrians in the vicinity of the monitored access point. This information is used to act on a traffic light that controls the exit access of vehicles. The group looks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the sector of transport infrastructure and traffic safety.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Autonomous vehicles for transport of materials in warehousesBased on current SLAM techniques, researchers have developed new algorithms with important improvements in the map creation, association and location processes. In this way, the vehicle reaches a better adaptation to the space and organization of the warehouse. In other words, the vehicle can be adapted to the place and it is not necessary to adapt the place to the vehicle. The main innovative aspects are: • The vehicles have a high level of autonomy, due to the dynamic planning of paths. • Avoid collisions because the system can modify the path in real time. • The definition of new paths without modification of the environment avoids costly investments.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Biological control of pests: breeding protocol for Sphaerophoria rueppellii for use in biological control of aphidsMembers of CIBIO Research Institute, led by Professor Maria Angeles Marcos Garcia, head of the Associated Unit to CSIC, have developed a method to raise the dipterans predator Sphaerophoria rueppellii. This insect is known for its efficiency and high specificity predatory sirphid being more suitable as biological control agent against agricultural pests from aphids in a Mediterranean climate crops. The use of this natural enemy for biological control of pests will reduce pesticide use in both agricultural crops and in urban gardens. Have been optimized environmental conditions for breeding, such as diet (both immature and adult stages) to ensure a higher reproductive potential and higher rates of survival. The group is looking for companies interested in acquiring the technology for commercial exploitation. Innovative aspects 1- The only species of industrially produced sirphid (Episyphus balteatus) does not effectively control aphid pests in Mediterranean cultures, this is why the selection of another species of sirphid to act as a viable alternative in the field Mediterranean was needed. The novelty of this specie is that and in most cases of biological control, using species that are commercially available, or not part of the fauna, in this case, we have managed to breed the species in field trials, proved to have the greatest potential for control. 2- This is the first time that this predator specie is bred in the laboratory and maintain continuously during successive generations breeding in significant amounts from individuals. 3- Due to the invention has been developed by a consolidated research group, it will be applied a Quality Control (under the rules of the International Organisation for Biological and Integrated Control), to ensure the viability and product quality

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Biometric identification system based on eye blinkingThe Optics and Vision Sciences research group at the University of Alicante has developed a method for biometric authentication by recognizing the blinking of a subject. The method consists of studying and characterizing the changes in the intensity of diffused light during the blinking process. Those changes are used to classify the blinks using different algorithms. A subject can then be identified according to the parameters recorded. This method allows the authentication of subjects by means of a non-contact procedure, and even unconsciously. Commercial or built-in on mobile devices video cameras or webcams can be used for its application provided that the video is recorded at rates higher than 150 frames per second (fps). We are looking for companies interested in the commercial exploitation of this technology as well as in adapting it for the development of related projects.
