UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:3D printer for the in-situ building of habitable modules with a raw mixture of binders and the soil of MarsA student of the University of Aveiro did the “spin-in” of an invention that started to be developed with the collaboration of teachers and investigators of several departments. The invention, that’s been arising interest in the business sector, locally and nationally, aims at the production of habitable modules using the soil in inhospitable locations, and it was specifically thought for Mars. The advantages of this process are the total automation, and it distinguishes itself from other solutions proposed until now for providing a closed construction, airtight, with total habitability, safe against cosmic radiation with other devices, and the possibility of holding distinctive functions. He University is looking for partners that may be interested in financing the development of this tool.
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.
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.
DIT Hothouse posted this:UPQC: A Device for Power Quality EnhancementUPQC (Universal Power Quality Conditioner) allows optimal control of a power electronics-based conditioner. Comprising both shunt and series elements (inverters), UPQC compensates for sags and swells, unbalance and distortion (harmonics)in the supply current and supply voltage respectively. UPQC delivers cost savings, increased reliability and enhanced electrical power network functionality. It also employs modular control software and novel techniques for load side short circuit protection of series inverters.
DIT Hothouse posted this:Strata Vision: Automated Scanning and Fault Detection for PPEDIT Hothouse is seeking a suitable commercial partner to take this technology to market. The establishment of a start-up software business or a licensing agreement with a clean room services company are two possible routes to market. Industry partners will have the added benefit of a highly experienced DIT project team to help deliver the final product. StrataVision has featured strongly in national (Enterprise Ireland) and international (Hong Kong PU) enterprise awards.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Acoustic propagation model and location systems for underwater environmentsGEINTRA, a research group from the Department of Electronics of the University of Alcalá, provides a model for studying the acoustic propagation in underwater environments. This model is useful for communications and positioning systems. The proposed model provides the channel response for the usual environmental phenomena. The model simulate how these phenomena affect a particular acoustic signal, and therefore, the performance of an underwater system based on acoustic signals can be evaluated previously to its deployment. The model has been tested for the case of underwater localization systems. GEINTRA is looking for companies working in telecommunications and IT sectors or performing works related to exact science and physics to achieve technical cooperation agreements.
