Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this:Shimmer3 Bioimpedance Monitor - Monitoring HR, respiration rate and depth, and the increase in fluid in the lungs to triage and remotely monitor Covid-19 patientsManaging the huge influx of patients in hospitals is one of the most critical challenges of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Shimmer’s Bioimpedance Monitor has the potential to help manage this challenge by monitoring HR, respiration rate and depth and the increase in fluid in the lungs to triage and remotely monitor patients. Background Bioimpedance, specifically across the lungs, has long been studied in Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). This measurement provides useful indicators of respiration, including rate, volume, and fluid in the lungs. Because COVID-19 attacks the lungs, these measurements provide clear indications of the progression of the disease. This information can be used in many ways, potentially including: • Monitoring patients remotely at home to determine, if and when, they will need to be admitted to the hospital • Monitoring patients in a hospital to determine when they need more aggressive treatment (e.g., ventilators) • Enabling the earlier release of non-acute patients because of the ability to monitor at home • Adjusting the treatment depending on the rate of progression of disease
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New lossless data compression system with quick operation and high compression efficiencyA joint UB/UPC team has developed a new lossless data compression system excellent for applications requiring at the same time high compression ratios and quick operation with low CPU load. The system under the named FAPEC (Fully Adaptive Prediction Error Coder) is an algorithm that combines low processing requirements with high compression efficiency under almost any scenario. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish license agreements with technical cooperation are sought.
Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:Novel technology of geological mapping with reduced exploration costsNovosibirsk State University (Russia) has developed a new paradigm of geological mapping of Pacific-type folded belts. It allows to improve the quality of geological mapping and to reduce the cost of geological exploration of natural resources. Exploration costs are cut down by excluding/reducing the scope of surface and subsurface exploration in unpromising areas. The university seeks for partners to sign commercial agreements, R&D agreements, and service contracts.
Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:High-precision environmental monitoring UAV-mobile systemNovosibirsk State University has developed a UAV-mobile complex for high-precision environmental monitoring. Due to the use of a high-frequency magnetometer, highly sensitive gamma-ray spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, the costs of environmental monitoring are reduced significantly, often by more than 3-5 times. The University seeks partners for scientific cooperation and service agreements
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Efficient sensing techniques for smart city applicationsThe city of the 21st century demands a set of digital services that provide citizens with improved access to resources such as transport, education, health care, energy, safety, and the environment. Giving intelligence to these services means having an extensive network of sensors and the management of information supported by the Internet of things (IoT). Wireless sensor networks present two major challenges: efficient communication and energy autonomy. Event-based sensing techniques help to optimize both by analyzing the information registered in the sensor and making it available to the network only when necessary. In the GEINTRA group, we have experience in event-based sensing techniques and their application to the field of Smart Cities.

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.
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...

This device is based on the sequential deposition of self-assembled monolayers of polymers and affinity elements, applicable for the detection and quantification of any analyte or target antigen in a liquid sample, which allows the development of "on-demand" immunosensors. The group looks for companies or institutions from agro-food, bio-sanitary and environmental sector, interested in reaching collaboration agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance or patent licensing.
