USP Innovation Agency posted this:CHEMICAL SENSOR, FABRICATION PROCESS AND ITS USE IN pH MEASUREMENT IN MICROFLUIDICS SYSTEMSICurrently, chemical processes that use water as substance for chemical reactions are very common. In such processes, it is important to obtain parameters of water quality, in order not to interfere with chemical reaction results. In this regard, this invention shows chemical sensors, which are used to measure pH in liquid medium, organized on a substrate where there is a hole through which the sensor comes into contact with the liquid medium whose purpose is to know the liquid’s chemical properties. In addition, this invention also introduces a method of manufacturing chemical sensor in which chip is electrically connected to the substrate by welding.

Fundació URV posted this:ELECTRE-H software package: a tool for data analysis and decision aiding with hierarchical criteriaThe ELECTRE-H Software Package implements two new methods for ranking and ordered classification decision problems considering multiple criteria structured into a hierarchy. The hierarchy of criteria is a tool that allows the decision maker to better organize the problem based on its domain knowledge and needs, decomposing the general problem into smaller sub-problems. Both methods follow the well-known outranking model and belong to the family of ELECTRE methods. The ELECTRE approach is inspired on the voting-like procedure based on the opinion of the majority but also respecting the minorities (by allowing veto power). The software available to use ELECTRE methods does not allow a hierarchical decomposition of the problem, but on a flat organization of criteria. The ELECTRE-H for hierarchical sets of criteria was defined by Dr. Del Vasto and Dr. Valls (from URV) and Dr. Slowinski and Dr. Zielniewicz (from Poznán University of Technology, Poland). The papers can be found here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0957417415001153 http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10844-015-0362-7 The novelties of these two methods are the following: -It fully applies the standard outranking procedure of ELECTRE at all the levels of the hierarchy of criteria (concordance and discordance indices are obtained from the results of the previous layer and exploited at each node to generate new results). -The user will get a result (a ranking or classification) at each intermediate node of the hierarchy as well as the root (or overall) node. -Preference uncertainty can be managed at each node of the hierarchy with its particular discrimination threshold values. -Veto power can be given to the appropriate nodes in the hierarchy, to avoid compensation with the rest of related criteria. -Different scales of measurement can be used both in the elementary criteria and in the intermediate criteria. -For the case of sorting, simple IF…THEN… decision rules are used to define the categories. The novelty of the software ELECTRE-H is that it is the implementation of these methods given by the authors. This guarantees that the program is fully following the methodology proposed. Its main features are: -Clear and easy-to-understand user interface. -Data can be easily provided using an Excel file. -All the parameters of the model can be easily changed in the user interface. -The results obtained can be graphically displayed (i.e. partial pre-orders, rankings) and exported into a PNG image or text files. Also, the calculations of the results are provided in log files. -Additional statistical tools to compute correlations for different ranking and classification results on the same set of alternatives and hierarchy are available. - A distance-based statistical tool to compare partial preorders is available. -The “Simos revised procedure” to calculate numerical values for criteria weights is available. -Analysis of the results can be done at different levels of the hierarchy. -The software supports large number of alternatives and criteria. Also the structure of the hierarchy is only limited to be a tree (each node has a single parent). The software is designed to be easy to use while providing the full functionality required in these two methods.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Laboratory device to measure gas diffusion coefficients at real conditions.The Applied Petrology Group of the University of Alicante has developed an automatic device and a method to determine gas diffusion coefficients of single gases from a gas mixture under atmospheric conditions. The device works in a wide range of relative humidity and temperature and can be employed to test any permeable or porous material. The procedure allows to calculate the gas diffusion coefficients for samples with different size and nature (soils, rocks, concretes, synthetic materials, etc.). It is a non-destructive test that can be used to calculate the gas diffusion coefficients of more than one gas at the same time. It is looking for companies that are interested in this technology for its commercial exploitation.

This process applies techniques of the digital image processing such as pixel segmentation, recognition and selection of regions, as well as operations in the regions found within digital images with the purpose of detecting nudity. The segmentation under the colour HSV model is used for locating and separating the pixels corresponding to human skin, as well as the algorithm RSOR for recognising and separating the region with the highest number of skin pixels within the segmented image (highest region) and evaluating the digital images.
