Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:A wireless Augmentative and Alternative Communication SystemThis new system is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication system (AAC) that allows people with language disabilities to communicate through icons without the intervention of external support. The design is formed by two low-cost separated blocks (selection of the symbols and voice reproduction) with a wireless communication, so it facilitates its scalability, to adapt it to user's vocabulary, and mechanical and intellectual skills. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

LRRK2 is a key player for the development of both genetic and sporadic forms of Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Industrial partners from pharmaceutical industry are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

Emotongue is not a simple app, it is the app that everybody was looking for! It had been designed for a research project carried out in the Department of Sciences of Education of the University of Alcalá, Spain, but due to its features and the great benefits it has, now it is available for every customer interested in improving his/her resources for managing his/her emotional world. Emotongue has been created for helping people to know their emotions, connect with them and learn how to manage them. The app is a tool easy to use, with a colored and dynamic design. It sends the user 5 notifications per day, and she/he has at his/her disposal 2 hours to answer each notification either by a written message or by an audio. The app is available in every country in which people speak English and/or Spanish. An improved version of the app could send users a feedback about their evolution in their management of their emotions and their use of the app. A part from the app, the authors could offer a service to companies interested in it, by creating courses about emotional management, designed according to the company’s needs, something very difficult to find in the trade market.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Biotechnological production of 11α hydroxylated steroids using recombinant bacteria.CSIC has developed a procedure for the biotechnological production of 11α hydroxylated steroids by generating and subsequent use of recombinant bacteria. These recombinant bacteria allow to perform microbial biotransformation processes that result in 11αhydroxylated steroid compounds from raw materials such as phytosterols and intermediate products efficiently and economically. These compounds have numerous applications in pharmacology. Companies are sought for implementing and commercializing the new technology under patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

These codes (one unique code for each LED lamp) will be decoded by light detectors included in smart-devices, or by detectors designed particularly for this purpose. From the code information, the device positioning can be determined with high precision.

Giving intelligence to these services means having an extensive network of sensors and the management of information supported by the Internet of things (IoT). Wireless sensor networks present two major challenges: efficient communication and energy autonomy. Event-based sensing techniques help to optimize both by analyzing the information registered in the sensor and making it available to the network only when necessary. In the GEINTRA group, we have experience in event-based sensing techniques and their application to the field of Smart Cities.
