Internet of things
The UPC develops solutions based on its expert knowledge and experience in applied technology, in response to current smart connectivity challenges. In addition, the UPC is a leading university in the transfer of research results, the creation of start-ups, and the coordination of national and international projects.
The UPC also participates in 5G Barcelona, is a member of EIT Urban Mobility along with the CIT UPC, and is a founding member of CARNET, a project coordinated by CIT UPC and based on public-private collaboration to design the urban mobility of the future.
All three initiatives are an example of the range of areas in which the UPC applies connectivity in a cross-cutting way for a global environment.
MobilitApp: Deep learning to predict the transport mode used by citizens and protect their data securely
MobilitApp: Deep learning to predict the transport mode used by citizens and protect their data securelyMobilitApp is an application capable of predicting the mode of transport used by citizens using a deep learning tool based on three mobile phone sensors.
- The aim of the Muvity project in which the Multimedia Applications and ICTs Laboratory (LAM) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech (UPC) participates, is to develop a gamified physical telerehabilitation application for people with chronic injuries. The user carries out exercises and plays games designed with therapists that lead them to move their arms and legs and thus achieve the established goals.
- Researchers from the Advanced Broadband Communications Centre (CCABA) and the Optical Communications Group (GCO) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech (UPC) participate in the B5G-OPEN (Beyond 5G – OPtical nEtwork coNtinuum) project. This project is funded by the European Union, in the framework of which a new end-to-end integrated packet-optical transport architecture based on multiband optical transmission and switching networks is being designed and prototyped.
- Autonomous vehicles are a reality that we are getting closer to gradually but inevitably. The Centre for Sensors, Instruments and Systems Development (CD6) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech (UPC) has developed technologies for this type of vehicles that improve safety on journeys. To meet the needs of perceiving the environment at long range, a very complete set of sensors has to be developed, including cameras, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and radar.
