The Universitat Politècnica de València and the World Health Organisation (WHO) are teaching an international course on Big Data in Health.
The Valencia Institute of Technology and the Universitat Politècnica de València have presented the Medicarama Technology and Health Chair of the UPV, whose objective is to develop technologies for health and innovation in digital education within the health field.
Our best wishes for Christmas and a 2023 full of projects.
The solemn opening ceremony of the 2022-2023 academic year had Jordi Garcés as its protagonist. The professor of the Universitat de València has been invested as doctor honoris causa. The ITACA Institute of the UPV proposed his appointment, and the researchers Antonio Mocholí and Vicente Traver were his sponsors.
The Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) has carried out the first massive and simultaneous flight of drones in Europe and presented an innovative platform that helps to avoid collisions in the airspace. It has done so in the framework of BUBBLES, a European project coordinated by the UPV’s ITACA Institute, which aims to ensure the safe integration of drones, with a particular focus on the new European drone airspace management regulations, which will come into force next year.
The first test flights were conducted to validate the separation management concept for UAS proposed by BUBBLES project.
The traffic and variety of personal mobility vehicles (PMV) has grown exponentially in recent years. A study by the MAPFRE foundation estimates that around 1,200,000 people use electric scooters and bicycles daily in Spain. However, despite the emergence of these new forms of mobility, there are still no systems to monitor and control their use accurately and efficiently, which has a negative influence on traffic management, new forms of mobility and, finally, on road safety.
Now, the Traffic Control Systems team of the ITACA Institute, belonging to the Universitat Politècnica de València, has designed, developed and validated the first road sensor adapted to personal mobility vehicles.
CollectionCare aims to develop an innovative preventive conservation (PC) decision support system targeting the needs of small to medium-sized museums and collections. It will integrate IoT monitoring of the environmental conditions of each cultural artefact individually at any location, whether on display or in storage, handling or transport, integrated with multi-scale modelling for the different artefact materials while complying with current PC norms and recommendations.
Our best wishes for Christmas and a 2022 full of projects. Please stay safe.
ITACA’s Biomedical Data Science Lab (BDSLab) of Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) has developed a new mobile application that facilitates continuous monitoring of the quality of life of cancer patients.
This app, called Lalaby, allows the monitoring of the patients’ day-to-day life. It does so from the information collected by the sensors of their mobiles and from other sources stored in them that allow calculating their physical activity (movement and displacement), social interaction (voice frequencies) and activity on the network (amount of data used).
