University of Vigo posted this:New non-destructive method for “in situ” monitoring of anticorrosive protection of organic coatingsThe main novelty of the device and procedure is the new portable sensor adaptable to virtually any surface. 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.
Barani Design posted this:Helical solar radiation shield for temperature sensorHelical shape provides natural aspiration of warmer air flow. Creates a vortex flow (similar to a mini tornado) which effectively ventilates the inside without a fan. Advanced aerodynamic design techniques from the aerospace industry enable this compact shield to achieve unprecedented levels of accuracy.
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.

Fundació URV posted this:NEW PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING MONOLAYERS OF FUNCTIONALIZED NANOPARTICLESThis new procedure (not described in the bibliography) allows the manufacture of monolayers of metal nanoparticles linked by molecules of organic compounds. As you can see in Specifications, this procedure consists in two successive processes. One of the main advantages of this technology is the minimization of impurities in the functionalized monolayer compared to commonly used techniques. Besides, the manufacture of Schotty diode with this new procedure has been shown for the first time. In the same line, this procedure allows the use of monolayers of metal nanoparticles for metabolite detection. These are two unique and differents aspects of this technology in relation to other known used techniques.
