Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Artificial vision system for the semaphoric control of the access to parking and garages, through the monitoring of pedestrians.The research group “Intelligent Vehicles and Traffic Technologies” of the Automation Department of the University of Alcalá has developed a procedure for the semaphoric control of the access roads to parkings and garages by monitoring pedestrians using artificial vision. It is a road safety system that ensures that the exit access of the vehicles from the parking is performed safely for pedestrians, by monitoring the different access points to the parking, using a stereoscopic vision system with infrared lighting. The images provided by the stereoscopic vision system are processed by a computer, obtaining information regarding the presence of pedestrians in the vicinity of the monitored access point. This information is used to act on a traffic light that controls the exit access of vehicles. The group looks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the sector of transport infrastructure and traffic safety.
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.

They offer solutions for video surveillance and intelligent monitoring from the information provided by different sensors. This technological solution can be use in different applications, among which highlights people detection and object identification and tracking. Their main advantages are its versatility to be used with different objectives and in different operating environments, the intelligence of the process and control system (extracting reliable statistics, position and orientation, size, counting, mobility and other physics of the object). The group is looking for security companies, companies working in events planning or gauging control, to achieve technical collaboration agreements.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Identification of vehicle brands for traffic control and access control applicationsThe research group Intelligent Vehicles and Traffic Technologies of the University of Alcalá presents a device for recognizing vehicle brands based on a classification procedure of the manufacturer's logo. It is conceived as a complement to the classic optical systems of license plate recognition for applications of traffic management, access control or detection of infractions, providing useful information relative to the brand of the vehicle whose license plate, previously or subsequently, has been detected. The research group looks for companies / institutions / administrations in charge of traffic control, access control to restricted areas, as well as those in charge of integrating vehicle violation detection systems, for the signing of collaboration agreements, license agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance.
