Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:High-precision environmental monitoring UAV-mobile systemNovosibirsk State University has developed a UAV-mobile complex for high-precision environmental monitoring. Due to the use of a high-frequency magnetometer, highly sensitive gamma-ray spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, the costs of environmental monitoring are reduced significantly, often by more than 3-5 times. The University seeks partners for scientific cooperation and service agreements
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Comprehensive method to assess the technical condition of the pressure equipment of installation operated in the chemical and petrochemical industryA comprehensive method to assess the technical condition of the pressure equipment of installation operated in the chemical and petrochemical industry, with the use of acoustic emission signal analysis, structure stress field and the degradation st The algorithm for the assessment of the technical condition of pressure equipment of chemical and petrochemical installations, subjected to the long-term operation, allows to determine the damage degree of the material and allows to predict the further development of degradation processes in a function of time. The proposed approach to the problem of safe operation of devices is fundamentally different from the solutions which are currently used in industrial practice. Currently, the supervision of these objects is based mainly on standard non-destructive testing methods. The main limitation of used methods is the lack of the possibility of both examining the object in its entire volume and testing the device in working conditions. Developed algorithm allows to effectively solve current problems in the diagnosis of chemical installations related to the assessment of their technical condition and determination of the conditions for further operation in real time. The algorithm is particularly recommended for monitoring devices in which adverse damages occur due to the long-term operation.

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.

IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Ecological assessment of groundwater and groundwater dependent ecosystemsAn integrated management of groundwater resources requires a complete monitoring of biological, ecological and physical-chemical water properties in order to enhance our understanding on the ecosystem services they provide. IMDEA Water offers environmental services and fauna survey in groundwater (GW) and groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDEs) (i.e. the hyporheic zone of rivers, wetlands) for the groundwater resource sector. In order to ensure an adequate quality of groundwater for urban and rural consumption and considering the protection of aquatic resources to accomplish the directives regulations concerning water resources (Water Framework Directive, WFD 2000/60/EC, Directive on Environmental Quality, DEC 2008/105/EC and Groundwater Directive, GWD 2006/118/EC), we offer our integrated environmental consulting service on ecological assessment of GW and GDEs using a combination of traditional and innovative techniques for monitoring, evaluation and ecological analysis of GW biotic communities. We provide cost effective project solutions and outstanding client relations by delivering scientifically rigorous surveys on groundwater ecosystems.
Fundació URV posted this:A robust breast cancer computer-aided diagnosis systemWe analyze breast cancer in mammographies, ultrasonographies, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and thermographies. Our analysis includes mass/normal breast tissue classification, benign/malignant tumor classification in mammograms and ultrasound images, tumor detection in thermograms, mammogram registration and analysis of the evolution of breast tumors. We also quantify and visualize the evolution of breast tumors in patients undergoing medical treatment. While the previous works mainly focus on analyzing one type of breast images, we implement a robust CAD system for detecting, classifying and studying the evolution of breast cancer. This CAD system analyzes breast cancer in several types of medical images. To implement our CAD system, we use computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning methods. We also need to collect a large scale breast cancer dataset from hospitals. This dataset should include mammograms, ultrasound, thermograms and MRI images for the same patients. Our CAD gives accurate diagnosis results because it gathers information from different sources.
