Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Procedure and system for the passive location of wireless nodesA procedure for positioning wireless nodes under a passive approach, i.e., just listening to the radio medium has been developed. Thus, each regular location process run to locate a specific wireless node in the network yields to several nodes knowing their own position. Partners to further develop the system and/ or to establish commercial agreements with technical cooperation are sought.
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.

The program has been developed in version 1.0 and it runs integrated into ArcGIS©, for different versions from 10.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Systems and applications based on indoor positioning via led-lightingThe use of LED lamps available for lighting of different parts of a building or room in such a way as to allow the transmission of very high-frequency codes non-perceptible by humans together with the illumination lights. These codes (one unique code for each LED lamp) will be decoded by light detectors included in smart-devices, or by detectors designed particularly for this purpose. From the code information, the device positioning can be determined with high precision.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Location system and navigation assistance for blind people, using artificial vision.Robesafe group from Alcalá University is developing an assistance navigation system for blind people to guide them in structured indoor environments (such as corridors, distributors, rooms ...) and outdoor environments as well, using the merger between a GPS sensor and artificial vision. The system will show the path to follow to get to a destination, using acoustic information obtained by a synthesizer voice, similar to how the current GPS navigators do it. The group is interested in reaching commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies dedicated to the designing of mobility assistance systems for blind people.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Ultrasonic localization and positioning system for extensive indoor spaces.GEINTRA is a research group from the Department of Electronics of the University of Alcala. The group has developed an ultrasonic system, with a friendly configuration, calibration and deployment, which can be intended to cover extensive indoor spaces. The system works in a GPS-like mode. It uses active beacons and is privacy-oriented, without any node limits being located at the same time. The algorithms used allow to deal with noise problems, multipath propagation and near-far effectswhat gives the system a centimeter precision. The group is looking for companies working in automation, computer or telecommunication sectors to achieve technical collaboration agreements.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Acoustic propagation model and location systems for underwater environmentsGEINTRA, a research group from the Department of Electronics of the University of Alcalá, provides a model for studying the acoustic propagation in underwater environments. This model is useful for communications and positioning systems. The proposed model provides the channel response for the usual environmental phenomena. The model simulate how these phenomena affect a particular acoustic signal, and therefore, the performance of an underwater system based on acoustic signals can be evaluated previously to its deployment. The model has been tested for the case of underwater localization systems. GEINTRA is looking for companies working in telecommunications and IT sectors or performing works related to exact science and physics to achieve technical cooperation agreements.
RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Delayed Dictionary CompressionData compression is a preferred solution, since there is no need to dig in the ground for many kilometers in order to build new high bandwidth links. The Delayed Dictionary Compression (DDC) family of algorithms was invented by Prof. Yossi Matias and Mr. Raanan Refua. The motivation was to release the bottleneck of low level infrastructures - data transfer links. Current data compression techniques for packet networks allow a good compression and a poor latency, or poor compression ratio and a good latency. Project ID : 4-2012-319
