The TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo chose six submissions from Texas Tech University to be showcased by the TTU Office of Research Commercialization in Washington, D.C. from May 14 through May 17.
The submissions represented Texas Tech University, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso, and GLEAMM technologies from the Texas Tech University College of Engineering. The Office of Research Commercialization and GLEAMM were technology development partners of the conference.
The chosen submissions include the following:
• Electric Current and Magnetic Field Imaging System by Shelby Lacouture, Stephen Bayne, and Argenis Bilbao. They have formed a startup company, Energetrix Engineering, and have licensed the technology to further commercialize and validate the technology. This technology was also a "TechConnect National Innovation Awardee" and the group was selected to present at the "Electronics and Innovation Spotllights with Panasonic, LG, and Energizer" session.
• Robust Droop Control for Parallel Operated Inverters by BeiBei (Helen) Ren. This technology was also a "TechConnect National Innovation Awardee" and Ren was selected to present at the "IoT/Cyber/Grid Innovation Spotlights with DharmaGrowth" session.
• A Simulated Radiation Detector using RFID Technology by Robert Stump.
• Three Dimensional Kinetic Generator by Marc Ordonez (undergraduate student). He has formed a startup company, Polyax Energy, and has licensed the technology to further commercialize and validate the technology.
• PowerAce method and model for accurate and fast power flow analysis by Sajjad Abedi (graduate student).
• A Model for Noninvasive Diagnosis of Eye Tumor and Estimation of Core Body Temperature by Ocular Surface Temperature by Senay Tewolde, Ming Chyu, and Kevin Long.
