Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Intelligent regulation system of pedestrian crossings by monitoring the waiting areas and adaptive traffic light controlThe research group Intelligent Vehicles and Traffic Technologies of the Automation Department of the University of Alcalá has developed a system that allows the intelligent control of the opening and closing times of a traffic light that governs a pedestrian crossing, especially in urban areas. It is a road safety system that ensures that pedestrian traffic at pedestrian crossings is carried out safely, while optimizing the opening and closing times of traffic lights, achieving an improvement in traffic flow in urban areas. For this purpose, the monitoring of waiting areas for pedestrian crossings is carried out by means of a stereoscopic vision system with infrared illumination. The images provided by the stereoscopic vision system are processed by a computer, obtaining information regarding the presence of pedestrians in the waiting areas. This information is used to act on a traffic light that controls the pedestrian crossing. The group is looking for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies in the sector of transport infrastructure and traffic safety as well as public institutions, such as municipalities and councils.

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.

The device consists of a set of cameras located in the environment of each point of interest, an infrared lighting system, an image processing module and a wireless communication system with the train. The system contributes to the increase of safety in rail transport, providing the machinists with visual information about the state of the conflicting points and notifying the presence of obstacles. The system is capable of detecting the presence of objects in daylight and nighttime conditions. The group seeks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies that work in the manufacture of safety equipment for rail transport systems.

The group is looking for automotive companies, road safety, child retention systems manufacturers or telecommunications companies, interested in reaching agreements of collaboration, license or commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Universitat de Girona posted this:OMBR - OMBReuse (MBR retrofit to OMBR)The proposed technology is a concept that combines OMBR (osmotic membrane bioreactor) with MBR (membrane bioreactor) in a single module therefore it reduces the difficulties of installation and simplifies the operation system. Thus, this technology would renew all or part of the existing systems without the obligation to increase the volume installed and associated civil engineering costs. The fact that the OMBR modules are designed like the MBR module allows using the two types of membrane processes in the installed system.

The detection of chlorides is very important both for the pre-diagnosis of diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, and for the water quality control.

It demonstrates what is the mechanical behavior of the skull in case of impact and therefore changes the paradigm when designing cranial prostheses and protective equipments such as motorcycle helmets or dummies.
Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:Pressurized foam fire protection system for large diameter atmospheric storageOne of our partners developed a technology that provides uncompromised safety against full surface fires for large diameter atmospheric storage tanks - even if personnel, water supply, and electrical resources are vague and terrain, room, and climate are unfavorable - without polluting the environment or endangering lives The current ruling procedure is that only rim seal fires have to be taken out. In the case of a large full surface tank fire, the ruling tactic in most cases is to use whatever resources there are to contain the crisis and let the tank burn out. However in this way, the business disruption and environmental exposure is unacceptably huge. If other tanks are nearby, there is little chance of isolating a single tank if supplies are limited, and the whole terminal could be endangered.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Development and method of construction of a new electrochemical sensor of Magnesium (Mg2 +), without the need to add organic salts, additives or organic solvents to the sampleThe research group in Bioelectrochemistry and Biosensors of the University of Alcalá in collaboration with the Textile Industry Research Association (AITEX) has developed an electrochemical sensor of magnesium (Mg2 +) and a construction method based on the formation of a polymeric three-dimensional network that allows the entrapment / immobilization of a selective indicator for Mg2 +, eriochrome black T, by the use of a crosslinking agent and a polymer. The combination of these three reagents allows the construction of the sensor on any conductive surface, avoiding the electro polymerization of the indicator. The resulting sensor allows to measure MG2 + in any type of samples, without the need to add organic salts, additives or organic solvents. The quantification of Mg2 + is done directly by incubating the sensor in the sample containing the analyte, resulting in a modification of the amperometric signal proportional to its concentration. This method has many applications especially in health and biomedical sector since Mg2 + participates in such important activities as neuronal, neuromuscular transmission, or regulation of blood pressure and plays a key role in various pathologies such as vascular and migraines headache. The group is looking for companies in the agro-food, bio-sanitary and environmental sectors, with the aim of reaching technical collaboration agreements, commercial agreements or patent licenses.
