Universidad de Alicante posted this:Machine-to-Cloud Management System of Distributed Heterogeneous DevicesThe Specialized Processors Architecture Laboratory (SPA-Lab group) research group from University of Alicante has developed a system which improves remote control systems processes of different kind of devices geographically spread, through the Cloud. This suggested system provides independence between application layer and remote-controlled devices. Its main advantage is the homogeneity of mechanisms and functions for their interaction with the devices no matter their nature and the scope of the application. The supplied technology may be used in sectors needing monitoring and controlling a wide range of devices. The research team supplies the companies both the “know-how” for the necessary adaptation and implementation of the system and the possibility of licensing this technology.

This method consists in separating the two signals which comprises the probe signal to obtain the difference between amplification band and attenuation stimulated band or vice versa. The group is looking for companies in the technology sector and telecommunications to reach licensing agreements, collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New reusable, lightweight and economical formwork elementThe research group Materials and Construction Systems for Buildings of the University of Alicante has developed a reusable formwork element to implement joints with continuous reinforcement armours in reinforced concrete construction elements. It is easy to adapt to any construction element currently available in the market. It is a low cost element, quick and simple to use it, and it allows to obtain clean and geometric concrete joints. The research group is looking for companies interested in license agreement or other kind of cooperation.

The developed system uses phase change materials (PCMs), not only in the window protection but also for the complete shutter solution, which allows its optimization and uniqueness for solar gains. The system developed is adaptable to any type of weather conditions.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Innovative thermal conditioning panel in ceramic material able to cool or heat any environment in a simple, sustainable and energy-efficient wayThe main advantages of this technology are: - The technology consists of a cooling and heating system more sustainable and efficient. This system allows the usual air conditioners, forced air convective or hot water radiators to be replaced. - The installation and fastening system is very simple, so the panels could be easily mounted and dismounted. - Panels can be arranged horizontally, vertically or any other inclination, applied on walls and ceilings. - The use of ceramic materials enables greater lightness, so it can take larger formats (up to 300 x 100 mm; thickness 3 to 5 mm) - Ceramic material panels are more resistant to the effects of humidity, condensation, adsorption of dirt and moisture, as well as a higher mechanical strength. - Ceramic materials provide greater flexibility in terms of aesthetics and design, so different colour, texture or image could be applied to the walls and ceilings of a room.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New method for evaluating the durability of concrete by using conductive gelsThe main system innovation is the use of ion conductive gels as reservoirs of chlorides in migration assays. Until now the techniques had to start with the full saturation of the specimen and keeping it in contact with a chloride ions solution during diffusion or migration tests. This guaranteed the absence of other transport mechanisms (such as capillary absorption) and avoided surface moisture changes. This new method is simple to implement and allows the elimination of these requirements. Another innovative feature is that the system allows greater measuring accuracy of the advancing chloride front, because this advance occurs more homogeneously than in conventional tests in contact with liquid solutions.

It also allows dynamic strain measurements completing a full strain measurement per second in each of the 50000 measurement points.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Home automation and smart environmentsThe Group has been working in the development of technologies that integrate the management of the entire set of electronic devices existing in a home. The group is specialized in providing home automation solutions to people with mobility problems, such as elderly people, children or disabled people. It also is experienced in the development of computer systems for energy management of housing. Innovative aspects The research group has significant experience in developing automated systems for all types of environments. The possibility to develop specific integration solutions for any type of device used in a home (lighting, security system, wireless appliances and entertainment equipment, sensor network environment, etc.). They can also integrate all kinds of control systems and power generation to facilitate saving and energy efficiency of buildings. The group is able to develop new solutions based on the requirements and user needs. Main advantages of the technology The technology developed by the research group is established in the project metalTIC - Digital Home. This project, conducted for the Federation of Employers of the Metal of the Province of Alicante (FEMPA), has been the design and development of a set that simulates a house with the latest innovations in TICC to provide services at home. The 50 square meters house has a living room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, showing key concepts such as energy control, monitoring and security, comfort and leisure, communications, accessibility and management.

The offer is an innovative mathematical approach based on area partition by time optimized trajectories. It offers new models based on wind/tidal stream/river current in marine/air (drone) navigation and trajectory planning, making use of perturbation (winds/currents/streams) instead of proceeding against them.
