Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Novel acoustic wave device and filter for its use in high frequency applicationsAn acoustic wave device with one or more dielectric compensating layers that compensates the spurious signals by substantially temperature-independent nonlinearities occurring within the device has been developed. A direct application of this device has been the development of a novel acoustic filter. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Procedure and system for the passive location of wireless nodesA procedure for positioning wireless nodes under a passive approach, i.e., just listening to the radio medium has been developed. Thus, each regular location process run to locate a specific wireless node in the network yields to several nodes knowing their own position. Partners to further develop the system and/ or to establish commercial agreements with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Process and system for calculating distances between wireless nodesA novel procedure to calculate distances between wireless nodes that do not require hardware customization has been developed. This procedure and the system associated with it allow location systems to be easily developed using almost any technology (e.g. IEEE 802.11). Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Novel sensor for in vivo nano-mechanical characterizationA nanoforce sensor has been designed to be able to work in aqueous environments. The system is based on a motion amplifier mechanism that allows to amplify extremely small displacements (nanometers) up to 200 times, providing the possibility to characterize the mechano-transduction mechanisms either of a single cell or a tissue in a 3D gel scaffold. Partners to further develop the system applying to specific assays and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
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.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:A low-complexity and low-power receiver for wireless communicationsA superregenerative receiver for digital phase-modulated signals has been developed and patented. The technology described herein extends for the first time the conventional superregenerative receiver to be able to detect PSK signals with a minimum of additional circuitry. Taking advantage of both the lowcomplexity and low-power from superregenerative receivers and the more efficient power transmission achieved by PSK modulations. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:In vitro method for designing a customized therapy for a subject with Parkinson´sDisease CSIC, Université de Lille, INSERM and Centre Hospitalier Regional Universitaire de Lille have developed an in vitro method for designing a customized therapy for a Parkinson ‘s Disease patient through the determination of the presence of a centrosomal deficit from that subject and therefore susceptible to receive a therapy based on a LRRK2 inhibitor. 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.
