USP Innovation Agency posted this:DENTAL RADIOGRAPHIC INDIVIDUALIZED POSITIONERRadiography of periapical region has become an ordinary and indispensable examination in several areas of dentistry. The high quality, definition and fidelity between the images are fundamental requisites for a correct interpretation and reliability in the use of these results in researches and aid for the construction of clinical diagnosis. However, errors in the radiographic technique application, mainly errors of angulation, are often reported. With this reflection in mind, research accomplished by the Faculty of Odontology developed an innovative standard device for dental radiography.

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:Automated thickness measurement system for pantograph contact stripsUVIGO researchers have developed an accurate and reliable system for monitoring the durability of pantograph components preventing manual operator inspection. Based on artificial vision, this system measures the remaining thickness of the graphite layers of the collector strips. Automatic processing of collected data generates a 3D model of the strips, analyzing it to detect cracks and wear, which is crucial for pantograph maintenance.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:DriveSafe: App that monitors and scores your driving, generating alerts when it is not safe.The RobeSafe group of the Department of Electronics of the University of Alcalá has developed the application DriveSafe that monitors and evaluates the driving profiles of the drivers generating alerts in real time when they are considered to be unsafe. Placing the mobile device on the vehicle's windshield, the application uses the smartphone's sensors (accelerometers, GPS, rear camera) to get a complete assessment of the driving and create a driver profile that can be checked either on real time during the trip, or reviewed in detail once the route is over. The system requires only a slight calibration. The application has a dual functionality. On the one hand, it provides real-time Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) services, improving the safety of drivers in all types of vehicles (mainly low-end), which otherwise would only be available in premium vehicles high-end. On the other hand, it generates a history of the driver behavior that may be useful to the driver himself or to insurance, logistics or other companies in order to mitigate potential risks and reduce operational costs. The group is looking for companies from the Transport, Insurance or Apps sector to sign technical collaboration agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance and license agreements.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Risk management of the effects of solar activity: Device and procedure of obtaining in real time and high resolution, the Local Geomagnetic Disturbance at middle latitudes.The research team specialized in Space Meteorology within the Space Research Group of the University of Alcalá, has developed a device and procedure that, based on the measurement of the local geomagnetic field, is able to estimate the magnetic disturbance component associated to solar activity at middle latitudes. The determination of the magnetic disturbance component is especially relevant in cases of sporadic but explosive solar phenomena. From the perspective of the actual user, the present invention constitutes an essential element in the risk management of the effects of solar activity on vulnerable technologies, both ground-based and satellite-based (electric power, rail transport, terrestrial and positioning navigation systems, radio and satellite communication systems ...), increasing the capacities of public administrations, civil protection and emergencies and the companies themselves, in order to prepare a successful strategy for adverse conditions related to the solar activity. The group is looking for collaboration and/or commercial agreements with the Central Administration, Civil Protection, Critical Infrastructure, Electric Power companies, Rail Network, Oil pipelines companies, Gas Pipelines companies, Insurance firms, etc...

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 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.
