This system has a central server that stores a card for each participant entering the event and location constraints expressed by him/her. Once inside the room the participant can view on his/her mobile phone business the other participants’ cards, classified in the following categories: bussines, friends, others,..
The sending system adds a two-way interview request that can be accepted, rejected or ignored by the receiving participant

What we are looking for:
The group seeks to work with mobile operators, handset manufacturers and companies with their own creative development of multimedia applications and services for these terminals who are interested in offering a new application on their portfolio.

Dual-band radiation detector

What we offer:
Two researchers of the University Complutense of Madrid and have developed an optical device for the simultaneous detection of two well-separated bands of the electromagnetic spectrum, as e.g. terahertz and infrared bands or far infrared and visible. The device may work as an individual dual band detector or as a pixel element in an focal plane array detector.
The technology proposed enables the simultaneous detection of electromagnetic radiation in two bands by coupling an antenna to the low-frequency detector. This one acts simultaneously as an antenna for one wavelength and as a lense for the other.
Its main applications lie in defence, engineering and biomedicine.
As advantages: robustness due to the use of both sides of a single substrate and esay adaption to the detection needs

What we are looking for:
We are looking for companies working in the fields of optoelectronics for industrial inspection, biomedicine, defense or aerospatial, interested in the licensing of the patent.
We offer the licensing of the patent and collaboration in the remaining steps leading to industrial production.

Design, testing and characterization tasks can be carried out at the UCM facilities. Fabrication can be contracted in external laboratories. The different tasks performed by the UCM could be transferred to the company when industrial production starts.

Magnetic signature system for document authentication

What we offer:
The Group of Magnetic Devices has invented a system to authenticate documents based on the magnetic signature of a set of magnetic nanowires. The signature is determined by the material of the wires (magnetic, non-magnetic or an alloy), their distribution in the document, and the common direction of the magnetic anisotropy.
The control over the composition of the wires and its distribution in the membrane increases the number of available signatures.
The relative orientation of the wires and the document, together with the higher surface density, enhance signal detectability.
Fabrication costs are lower as compared with magnetic signature systems, because of the reduction in the quantity of magnetic material used and the easier production process.

What we are looking for:
Being a cheap and easy technique, we believe this technology could be of interest to companies of any size in the field of security systems, or companies who produce nanoparticles or nanowires for various applications.
The viability of the detection system has been tested on a laboratory prototype. Companies interested would have to get involved in the remaining process before reaching commercialization status

Rigorous evaluation of embedded and real-time systems

What we offer:
The Testing and Performance Evaluation research group of the UCM studies rigorous techniques to carry on testing and performance evaluation activities. These techniques should be transferred to adequate real systems. In particular, the group would like to apply them to everyday devices.
Quality assurance by using rigorous testing techniques is a protection activity. Its main goal is to detect errors during the initial development stages in order to avoid that these errors are either propagated to ulterior stages or that they become faults of the developed system. Our technologies put an emphasis on temporal aspects that are usually overlooked and produce an increase of the revision and mantenance costs of systems.

What we are looking for:
The research group is looking forward to collaborate with companies producing these devices and that are interested in the application of rigorous techniques to improve the quality of these devices.
The group will collaborate with developers of systems where temporal properties play an important role. Specific examples of this type of systems are appliances and certain devices embedded in automoviles. The cost associated with the integration of this tecnology could be very limited since the technology might be implemented by the same team that it is currently in charge of testing and quality assurance activities.

Dynamic forecast

What we offer:
A R&D group from Complutense University of Madrid has developed a methodology to model the uncertainty through dynamic predictions over time of any event subject to uncertainty. This event may be the flow down of a river in avenue regime, the demand for material to a warehouse, and so on.
The technology is capable of being applied to other contexts with a minimum previous work.
This technology allows a better parametric modelling of problems, to represent by probabilities the information on parameters and to make predictions using probability distributions. Provides solutions to incorporate information from the experts. Provides automatically a quality control.

What we are looking for:
We look for different collaboration projects with companies that need to make temporary forecast and are interested in investing for the fitting of the model. This collaboratioin will include:
• Study of the predicting problem of the client and determination of the way the Kalman filter can be applied to each particular problem.
• Development of the model and adjusting their elements to the historical data to make predictions in real time.
• Development of the computer program applied to the client's needs.
• Training of staff of the company for the better utilization of the program and its adaptation to new situations.
• Assistance, after the transfer process for the resolution of problems, both theoretical and practical, that can appear.

Vision based system for unmanned vehicles landing or docking

What we offer:
A R&D group has developed an approaching system to a platform for unmanned vehicles by means of visual analysis. It makes easier landing / docking and takeoff / departure maneuvering in unmanned vehicles, air and sea respectively.
A platform containing a specific pattern on it is recognized by an image sensor. It is mounted on the UV and takes pictures of the area and analyzes them. In this way it will provide the relative distance between the vehicle and the platform and three needed angles for approaching and landing manoeuvres: yaw, pitch and roll. Also, for UAVs it determines the altitude of the craft.
Then the device actuators can control the manoeuvres from a prefixed position.

What we are looking for:
The group is looking for licensing the patented technology among companies of air or sea transport.
• The system can be used anywhere because it avoids recognizing marks on the ground, natural or artificial, or search in previous databases.
• It reduces costs because the camera uses visible radiation.
• The platform can be placed without any extra on any desired place to land / take off an UAV or to dock / to sail an UVM.

e-Adventure: platform for developing educational games and simulations

What we offer:
The platform is aiming to facilitate the integration of educational games and game-like simulations in educational processes in general and Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) in particular. It is being developed with three main objectives:
•Reduction of the development costs for educational games
•Incorporation of education-specific features in game development tools
•Integration of the resulting games with existing courseware in Virtual Learning Environments
The core of the project is the educational game engine, that runs games defined using the language. Authors can use the graphical editor to create the games or directly access the human-readable source documents that describe the adventures using XML markup. With , any person can write an educational point & click adventure game

What we are looking for:
SME or enterprises that want to create innovative educational content using simulations and games. These simulations and games are very easy to translate to a different language and have a high maintainability.
Specially suited for industries and sector with a high degree of procedural knowledge (medicine, labor risk, defence, etc).
