Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:A sea wave detector for improved autopilot systemsA new method for processing the signal from a speed log meter enables rapid and cost-effective wave detection, which in turn improves autopilot performance and provides safer operation in rough seas. We are seeking partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial and technical cooperation agreements.

Cracow University of Technology posted this:A propulsion/drive system of aquatic vessels.Both proposed side fins drive systems have similar features which are realized by slightly different mechanisms dependant on the room inside vehicles hull. Those features are as follows: - multi-functionality, - ability to generate an extra driving force, - significant increase of swimming speed, - reduction of robot unwanted hull movements during swimming with side fins enabling proper work of onboard equipment and sensors etc. (for solutions in robots imitating fish); - increasing the dynamic of swimming depth changes; - wide range of change of direction of thrust force (also reverse thrust). - unlimited range of change of thrust around axis of rotation of side fins, - ability to dynamically stabilize heel movement of the hull - no change in the direction of rotation of the main engine transferred into oscillatory motion of lateral fins, - less energy consumption, - frequency of oscillation at a level of several Hz
University of Vigo posted this:Automated thickness measurement system for pantograph contact stripsUVIGO researchers have developed an accurate and reliable system for monitoring the durability of pantograph components preventing manual operator inspection. Based on artificial vision, this system measures the remaining thickness of the graphite layers of the collector strips. Automatic processing of collected data generates a 3D model of the strips, analyzing it to detect cracks and wear, which is crucial for pantograph maintenance.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:LARES Robotic Solutions for telecareThe research group in Intelligent Systems GSI, from the Automatic Department of Alcalá University, proposes a solution for telecare and telemedicine based on a network of sensors, an autonomous robot and a health database, designed to prevent accidents of dependent people in an efficient way and offering solutions to different needs still not covered in the market. This service focuses on dependent patients and their caregivers to improve their quality of life. The system also proposes e- health databases for new medical applications with large data volumes.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Location system and navigation assistance for blind people, using artificial vision.Robesafe group from Alcalá University is developing an assistance navigation system for blind people to guide them in structured indoor environments (such as corridors, distributors, rooms ...) and outdoor environments as well, using the merger between a GPS sensor and artificial vision. The system will show the path to follow to get to a destination, using acoustic information obtained by a synthesizer voice, similar to how the current GPS navigators do it. The group is interested in reaching commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies dedicated to the designing of mobility assistance systems for blind people.
Technology Transfer Office
CITCEA-UPC posted this:Technology transfer in renewable energies, power electronics, energy control, electrical vehicles...CITCEA-UPC is a technology transfer center which was created in 2001 within the UPC (Universitat PolitÃ¨cnica de Catalunya, BarcelonaTech), and it is specialized in responding to electrical and electronic technological challenges. The aim of the center is to receive these challenges and solve them by creating a functional prototype that will serve the companies to eventually develop a new commercial product or to solve a new technological problem created by the growth and evolution of the society.
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.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Intelligent Transport System for the optimzation of indoor shared resources: routes, communication channels and sensor networks.GEINTRA is a research group from the Electronics Department of the University of Alcala. The group offers solutions for route selection and digital control with adaptive sampling. It is an useful system for transport optimization and functionality of indoor mobile units. With competitive advantages such as travel time optimization, selective use of the wireless communication channel and energy cost reduction for sensors distributed in the environment. The group is looking for industrial automation companies to achieve technical cooperation agreements and licensing agreements.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Control system that allows drones to flight autonomouslyResearchers from the University of Alicante have developed a control system, which allows a greater versatility in flight for UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles also colloquially called drones). With this system a vehicle can switch between different flight plans or define in real time the optimum aircraft movement depending on the environment and the information received by its sensors. Moreover, this system also includes a communication mechanism that allows a ground station to define new flight plans while the aircraft is in the air. This system is a significant advance over existing systems, as latter ones require prior planning to take off and have a reduced flexibility when the vehicles are in flight. It is applicable to all types of aircraft using the communication protocol MAVLINK.
