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.

Pulsa posted this:Weight & gas pressure IoT sensor telemetry solution with machine learning predictive inventoryPulsa provides predictive inventory via purpose-built, connected hardware and an advanced machine learning backend. We are able to understand variable consumption and tell our customers when they actually need to refill or reorder inventory, instead of repeatedly checking every item. We have built our product to address a large portion of the real-time inventory market, and we are initially focused on industrial gas cylinders. We can eliminate production down time due to depleted gas cylinders and reduce the number of cylinders held in inventory. Our solution, compared to other existing in-market solutions, is significantly more affordable (10x more affordable than existing solutions) and easier to set up (out of box set-up, does not require technical experience) than existing inventory telemetry products. It also combines the real time inventory knowledge with an advanced machine learning backend that predicts when inventory needs to be replenished and notifies end users.

Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:Spectral-selective thermal detectors and visualizers of radiation beams of mm and sub-mm rangesA number of thermal detectors and visualizers for inspection systems and quality inspection have been developed in the laboratory of a University (Russia). The design of detectors allows reducing the manufacturing cost as much as possible and combining functions of spectral, polarization and spatial resolution in one device. The authors are looking for partners for commercial agreements, scientific cooperation, and technological cooperation.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:System for reliable detection of occupancy of parking spacesThe research group in “Electronic engineering applied to intelligent spaces and transport (GEINTRA)” of the University of Alcalá presents an artificial vision system with telemeter, which combines the information from a video camera and an steerable telemeter, to inform and guide reliably to the user when finding a parking space for their vehicle in large areas of surface parking such as a shopping center or train station. The combination of those data, makes it possible to easily locate vehicles in the car park regardless of their type or size and the environmental conditions / lighting (e.g. at night). The research group looks for town halls and companies in charge of the management/administration of car parks, to reach license agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance. There is a great added value in an application that combines the knowledge of the free spaces and the vehicles in movement through the parking so it can provide the right indications to the user guiding him to a free space.
