UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:Optical pressure sensor based on zirconia nanostructuresA group of researchers from a Portuguese university has developed the concept of a gas pressure gauge based on the control of the luminescence from zirconia nanostructures. The invention aims to measure the gas pressure based on the nanoparticles emission that is different depending on the amount of gas molecules surrounding the nanoparticles. Comparing with existing solutions, the advantage of this process, which operate in a pressure range of interest for various market sectors (ex. Food industry), is the absence of electrical contacts. The university is looking for companies that develop this type of solution on an industrial scale for the further joint development of specific applications or technology licensing.

For reasons of typical maintenance tasks, often occur spills of fluids and lubricants transmissions machinery transforming the kinetic energy of wind into electrical energy which is sent to the network. These fluids to spill soiled the wind turbine tower. On the other hand, it must undertake periodical cleaning of wind turbine blades on them because remains of insects that collide with the blades are. These remains make the blade is losing its effectiveness. Furthermore periodic revision is necessary due to fatigue that are subjected to wind turbine blades forcing periodic visual inspections to prevent breakage thereof and therefore stopping the wind turbine. Researchers at the University of Burgos have developed a solution that perform such tasks without being necessary that operators should climb the tower of the wind turbine.

Detection of tertiary amines is very important as they are classified in several occasions as toxic analytes and/or contaminants. Among the tertiary amines capable of being detected by the developed method it is possible to include: pyrrolizidines, tropane alkaloids (scopolamine, atropine and cocaine), Opiates (Morphine, Codeine, Heroin).

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Ultrasonic localization and positioning system for extensive indoor spaces.GEINTRA is a research group from the Department of Electronics of the University of Alcala. The group has developed an ultrasonic system, with a friendly configuration, calibration and deployment, which can be intended to cover extensive indoor spaces. The system works in a GPS-like mode. It uses active beacons and is privacy-oriented, without any node limits being located at the same time. The algorithms used allow to deal with noise problems, multipath propagation and near-far effectswhat gives the system a centimeter precision. The group is looking for companies working in automation, computer or telecommunication sectors to achieve technical collaboration agreements.

IMIM Institut Recerca Hospital del Mar posted this:New phenolic natural extract obtained from olive and herbal spices with proven cardioprotective effect.This product consists of a natural extract wich combines olive oil phenols and other bioactive compounds from herbal species. The bioactive compounds of the natural extract have been characterized and quantified. Its use allows a novel therapeutic approach by means of the combination of complementary antioxidants from different origins that provides additional health benefits. Consumer acceptance has previously been assessed by conducting a panel test. Data from a randomized, controlled, crossover, clinical trial showed an improvement of vivo endothelial function and HDL subclass distribution, in humans. These effects were obtained with a low daily intake of the extract.
