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.

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.

It is used in the Internet of things, blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, key exchange, for example, in instant messengers, or as an independent mean of protection. The cryptosystem is resistant to hacking, including a quantum computer through the use of NP-hard in a quantum sense problem. The university is looking for partners for furtherance on the Russian and international markets.
Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:Resistant to hacking by a quantum computer electronic digital signatureResearchers of Novosibirsk State University have developed a revolutionary algorithm for quantum-stable digital signature based on results of fundamental research in mathematics. Moreover, they implemented the algorithm as a software prototype. The cryptographic stability of the digital signature guarantees information security when using it in e-economics, the Internet of things and other areas in the post-quantum era. The stability of the algorithm is ensured by solving the problem that is an NP-hard (non-polinomial intractable) in the quantum sense. The university is looking for partners to commercialize the technology in international markets.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Cooperative procedure SDN-repair network for faulty paths and network bridgeThe Research Group in Engineering of Telematic Services of the University of Alcalá, presents the following procedure that allows, in a network of transparent bridges equipped with learning functionality of paths of type ARP-Path, in cooperation with the SDN controller, to repair all the paths in use that pass through a certain link when it fails. In this way, when a link or other cause fails, and a path to a bridge terminal has to be repaired, this one informs the controller, sending a Packetln OpenFlow package containing the destination address to be repaired. Its most obvious application is in switches for Software Defined Networks (SDN). The group seeks to reach licensing agreements, commercial or of collaboration agreements with companies from the telecommunications sector, electronic devices and / or computer applications that establish the communications between transparent bridges.
Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology posted this:TRANSPARENCY OF ACCESS IN PEER-TO-PEER FILESHARING NETWORKSWith the use of peer-to-peer file sharing networks like BitTorrent or Freenet, the distribution of files amongst participants has become fast and easy. In a collaborative environment, this kind of data pool often makes sense, but with the drawback that someone who has provided data to the pool, loses control about who had accessed what file. This transparency of access is often required, e.g. for billing purposes or to fulfil the transparency rule of the new general data protection regulation. There are several options to solve this problem including the use of central systems or logging that involves the source of data. Usually these options introduce single points of failure. The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology offers a blockchain based method that is filed as a patent (patent pending) that avoids these single points of failure but still offers the benefits of redundant distributed file storage and still being able to audit selective the access of files.
NDI Foundation posted this:Strain of bacteriorhodopsin-BRBacteriorhodopsin (BR) is the newest biotechnological product that will make a revolution in many spheres of life: from medicine to defense. Data on the production of the BR in the world is hidden. From open sources - the only seller (and, possibly, producer) is an American company SIGMA, selling BR for research. We offer developed strain of BR. A method of producing allows to get BR in large quantities to several kg. The strain is certified and stored in special depositories. BR has unique qualities - the main one is - memory. For BR, it was necessary to find a special strain - producer of BR. Just several countries has the strain (USA, Russia, ..), other data hidden. We also developed such an unique strain.
University of Huelva posted this:New device and system for the recovery of communication equipmentThe present device is focused on the automatic recovery of operating systems for routers and switches, which is one of the fundamental claims on this invention since there are no current devices in the state-of-the-art for such purposes. Another particularity that distinguishes to the present invention is that it is not only software or hardware in contrast to other approaches, but of a complete hardware/software device (i.e, both capabilities are combined). Another of the most significant singularities is its portability, since the invention is based on a reduced size device (non rackable) and made up of autonomous battery. This allows to carry out any function with total freedom to move. Besides the comfort, it contributes a great improvement in working time, since operating with distant devices implies an additional time in turning off, turning on again, and enabling the necessary services to start the recovery procedure. As additional feature, the invention looks for the universality and independence from manufacturers or device model. Besides this purpose, another differentiated function is the capability to store the firmware of the communication devices to be recovered (i.e., the image of the operating system) through an internal physical storage unit of great capacity.

On the other hand, the innovation allows reusing the RJ plug as many times as required until properly assembling the copper pairs. Furthermore, the connector incorporates an identification by color codes for wiring according to the ANSI/TIA-968-A-2002 standard, which is ideal for people with limited dexterity on IT.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Novel Synchronization Process for Multi-carrier or Single-carrier CommunicationsThe research group “Communications, Multirate Systems, and Biomedical Engineering” of the University of Alcala presents a novel synchronization procedure for multicarrier or single carrier systems for narrowband and broadband communications. This procedure allows a precise estimation of the symbol timing offset (STO), and a coarse estimation of carrier frequency offset (CFO). The procedure is based on the inclusion of symmetric extensions in the transmitted symbols for the synchronization, which makes it useful not only for communications systems based on the discrete Fourier transform, but also for transceivers based on the discrete cosine transform (DCT). Among its main applications are communications through single-mode optical fiber, powerline communications, wireless and wireline systems, and in general, all the techniques that use multicarrier and single carrier modulations. The group seeks companies from the telecommunications sector to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreement with technical assistance and patent licensing agreements.

The invention aims to increase the throughput of current cellular communication systems. The advantages of this technology in relation to existing solutions are: 1) the throughput is enhanced and proportional to the square root of the number of transmitter/receiver pairs. 2) the interference is canceled using only outdated channel gain information and the interference removal procedure is distributed. The university is looking for companies on the wireless communications arena interested in improving the capacity of their communication systems.
