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:System for fixing armours during concretingThe research group “Materials and Construction Systems for Buildings”, from the Building and Urbanism Department of the University of Alicante, has developed a new and simple system that allows to fix any type of armours in concrete construction elements during the concreting process. This system avoids the movement of the armours in an efficient, technical and reusable way, and, therefore, also avoids future expensive treatments in case of unwanted movements. This new system is characterized by its low cost, light weight, ease of use and versatility for any constructive element. The research group is looking for companies interested in commercial exploitation.
University of Huelva posted this:Manual Handler of Concrete SleepersThe machine was designed to disengage steel bars from prefabricated concrete sleepers manually, which allows to increase production, safety at work and to improve the technical properties of the final product. The stretcher has two benches that allow movement in two directions, longitudinal and trasnverse. The process is done in such a way that the four active screws are de-stressed at the same time, avoiding damages.
Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:All-natural hydrophobic oil absorbent powders and granules for environmental & industrial purposesThe technology consists of an original industrial process by which natural materials can be turned into products with hydrophobic oil adsorbent properties. The captured oil can be extracted and recycled, and the product can be reused several times over. These products can be developed as powders or granules with varying levels of hardness, water resistance, size, and density for diverse set of applications.
University of Huelva posted this:Method for the combined foaming/modification of bitumens for use in pavingThis patent describes a cost-effective foamed bitumen process to be applied for cold recycling of aged flexible road pavements. Additionally, the base bitumen used is in-situ modified during the process and, consequently, both low and high temperature properties result remarkably improved. Finally, waste gypsum and phosphogypsum are preferably used to form the foam
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Vibroacoustic spectrometry system for the non-destructive analysis of materialsThe research group "Radiation and Sensing Group" of the University of Alcalá presents a system of non-destructive analysis of materials and structures, by spectral study of the indirect vibroacoustic excitations of the materials analyzed. By means of this system it is possible to perform in situ the analysis of materials and structures without previous treatments, solving with that the need to use coupling liquids that the current ultrasonic based systems currently use. The group seeks to reach licensing agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the agrofood, pharmacy, construction, ceramics, wood, cork and other materials sectors.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Ventilated facade building system of folded sheet without frameA research group from the Department of Architecture of the University of Alcalá (Spain) has developed a ventilated facade system characterized by the incorporation of a folded sheet placed in the middle of the section, which acts as a structural element of the façade and holds the rest of the materials and constituents of the facade. The sheet is folded forming ribs on both sides of the sheet, strengthening the façade and producing suitable modulations for both fixing the outer finishing material and transmitting the loads (own weight and horizontal actions) to the structure of the building by means of fastening elements located in the edge of the floor slab. The group looks for companies in the building sector and manufacturers of facade systems to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance and patent licensing agreements.
UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:Innovative water saving technology, based on recirculation of the same water when it is warming upThe present invention has the following advantages comparing to existing technologies: 1 - It is easy to mount, either in new construction or in existing, because it is a kit and does not involve works of alteration; 2 - It is modular, which allows scaling the technology to all sites or only where the highest consumption occur; 3 - It is reliable because it is based on components with many years of use in hot water systems; 4 - It is automatic, as it connects with the movement of opening a hot water tap on and automatically shuts down ; 5 - it is economic because while consuming electric power, consumption is very low and only for a few seconds; 6 - has a high cost-benefit ratio, it can generate savings that make the return on investment in short times.
University of Huelva posted this:Construction procedure of vertical wells with interior claddingThe invention is about a method of constructing vertical large wells, which are excavated by bivalve spoons, and are composed with an inner cladding based on cylindrical rings of reinforced concrete. The invention is especially intended for the excavation of wells in soils with clayey or silty layers, which do not easily disintegrate and therefore make it difficult to lower the cylindrical rings which will form the inner coating or cladding.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Building and Architectural Acoustics LaboratoryBuilding and Architectural Acoustics Laboratory (BAAL) is a part of Building Physics Lab. Our mission is to help architects and structural designers make their buildings acoustically better. We also help building material manufacturers to develop or improve acoustical performance in their products. We offer consulting services in the field of acoustics from the design phase until final building or product testing.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Laboratory of Photochemistry and Optical SpectroscopyDesign and synthesis of new photoinitiators dedicated for cationic, free-radical and hybrid photopolymerization. The research are performed to improve the speed of the curing processes of polymer coatings by developing innovative polymerization photoinitiators having a very better parameters than those already used in industry. The search for more effective initiators are fully justified from the practical point of view in industry photocurable polymer coatings.
University of Vigo posted this:New non-destructive method for “in situ” monitoring of anticorrosive protection of organic coatingsThe main novelty of the device and procedure is the new portable sensor adaptable to virtually any surface. The device, fixable by vacuum to the surface under study, makes possible the measurement of the electrochemical interfacial impedance, that is the main parameter of interest for adherence quality and anti-corrosion performance.
University of Vigo posted this:Lateral connection system by removable clamps for I or H profilesThe presented system allows detachable lateral connections, at right angles, type ‘cross beam to column flange’ of I and H standard profiles made of steel. The system uses standard mounting clamps without previous specific machining operations (as may be welding or drilling).
