Partnering opportunity

ICT applications based on QR codes and RFID in teaching and research laboratories

Summary

A research group from a Spanish university is developing Apps which allow improving the performance of the students and researchers in the measure and characterization of RF(radio frequency) devices, by the description of the devices and the management of the necessary instrumentation. The collaboration types sought are commercial agreements with technical assistance and technical cooperation agreements.

Partner sought

The group is looking for companies in the technology and telecommunications sectors to reach technical cooperation agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance. The group seeks to achieve commercial cooperation with industries of the Telecommunications sector. The technical assistance, regarding cooperation agreements is related to the product implementation, advices and issues arising from this process.

Description

A research group from a Spanish university has developed apps to improve the performance of students and researchers to measure the RF devices. The use of ICT is becoming more widespread thanks to the penetration of portable equipment such as computers, tablets or smartphones, which can facilitate the self-learning by students and researchers in teaching practices. The query of the equipment manuals, devices and instrumentation used in teaching laboratories of RF- through the use of passive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) labels on measuring devices and instruments used in each practice -allows the access to document database or video tutorials in which various aspects are developed related with the practice, such as the description of the devices and the steps to follow to the measurement of its parameters (equipment calibration, wiring, and sequence of the commands), allowing the performance and the interpretation of the measures. The same functionalities can be achieved by replacing the RFID labels for QR codes, whose capture will allow to access to the same database. In this case, a cheapening is achieved since it is not necessary the use of labels or RFDI reader. The implementation of an App to read the label or the QR code, and redirect the user to the information available on the portable device itself or in an external server -through an Internet connection via broadband mobile 4G or Wi-Fi -will provide students and researchers to resolve the doubts rose in the performing of their practices. The group is looking for companies in the technology and telecommunications sectors to reach technical cooperation agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Advantages and innovations

The key features of the system are based on the characteristics of the technologies used, being extended to any area of the laboratory practice of any subject. Thus, the use of ICT is favored by students and researchers, facilitating their access to user manuals of the measuring equipment and directing them to the tasks of self-learning. The innovative aspects of the app are the use of RFID and QR codes in educational environments or research laboratories, the simplification of equipment manuals use, the possibility of inclusion of video tutorials and the strengthening of ICT use in educational environments.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
