Universidad Carlos III of Madrid This innovation enables 3D images of living organisms to be obtained with greater speed and precision. In broad terms, helical optical projection tomography consists in rotating a sample while moving it vertically in order to then obtain a three-dimensional image of it, explain its creators. 4DNature, a company that is a spin-off of the university and which is supported by UC3M’s Vivero de Empresas (Business Incubator) in the Parque Científico (Science...

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid Researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have developed an assistive technology system that works by sounds which contributes to the autonomy of persons with visual impairments. The commercial systems that exist today in Spain for the mobility of persons with sight impairment are insufficient, according to theseUC3M researchers, because they are costly and too bulky. The assistive technology, conceived as a sound guide that gives...

Universidad Carlos III of Madrid Scientists from Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) are participating in ROBINSPECT, a European research project that is developing an intelligent robotic system for the automated inspection of highway and railroad tunnels. Currently, maintenance and safety inspection of tunnels used for vehicular traffic is carried out by direct in situ observation. This process, which is slow and requires intensive labor, requires that traffic be stopped on entire...

Researchers at Universidad Carlos III in Madrid (UC3M) have designed a system that automates the administrative sanctioning process (traffic fines) by applying Communication and Information Technologies (CITs) to traffic flow and using sensors built into vehicles. The goal of the scientists in the Information and Communications Technology Security Group (Seguridad de las Tecnologías de la Información y las Comunicaciones - SeTI) at UC3M who are working on the...

A study by researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Universidad de Zaragoza has determined that when deciding whether to cooperate with others, people do not act thinking in their own reward, as had been previously believed, but rather individuals are more influenced by their own mood at the time and by the number of individuals with whom they have cooperated before. In addition to previous studies, this research is also based on an experiment carried out by the Institute for...

Robotics is an area of research that can help us to innovate and become more competitive in the international marketplace. This was one of the conclusions of RoboCity12, the Robotics Summit that was recently held in Madrid by RoboCity2030, a consortium coordinated by Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M), which is made up of the strongest groups doing research in this area from the Autonomous Community of Madrid. The event, “RoboCity12: Robots para los ciudadanos” (Robots for...

Research at Carlos III University (Universidad Carlos III) in Madrid (Universidad Carlos III - UC3M) is developing an algorithm, based on ants´ behavior when they are searching for food, which accelerates the search for relationships among elements that are present in social networks. One of the main technical questions in the field of social networks, whose use is becoming more and more generalized, consists in locating the chain of reference that leads from one person to another,...

Researchers at Universidad Carlos III in Madrid (UC3M) have developed a system that can be built into virtual reality goggles that help patients with moderate visual impairment move around their surroundings. The application detects the distance and shape of objects and interacts with the user by means of a simple color code. People with moderate visual impairment, particularly those who have difficulty perceiving the full extent of their surroundings, could use the ingenious device that...
