10 uOttawa technologies with potential for improving collaborations, the online experiences, and security

The University of Ottawa Technology Transfer and Business Enterprise office is working with several researchers looking to commercialize new technologies with industry partners. Here are some of the technology areas they are working on.   

1.    Real Time HD Video over Public Networks

Dynamic control of HD video transmission by responding to and even predicting network conditions, eliminating buffering delays

2. Collaboration, whiteboarding and gaming using Minimal Bandwidth

Online collaboration, gaming, and teaching tools for mobile, desktops, and white boards enabled by converting animated files into binary commands for rapid communication, storage, transmission, and playback

3.    Panoramic 3D Video Camera

Camera configuration and software to simplify 360º stereoscopic recording to the point that it can be done real time in environments with lots of motion

4.    RFID Security Protocol

Radio frequency identification tags can be secured using minimal processing resources with this algorithm

5.    Authentication protocols for secure access

Increase security of devices through Easy Touch Access that senses biological signals from the user when the device is touched, and the 3D Graphical Password integrates difficult to copy pressure sensitivity on a touch screen as it cannot be seen by eavesdroppers.

6.    Accelerated scalar multiplication on elliptic curve cryptosystems over prime fields

This technology replaces expensive field multiplications by squarings and other cheaper operations in ECC point operations over a prime field.

7. Digital Watermaking for H.264 high definition video

This robust and imperceptible digital watermark scheme can be used to protect digital media from pirating and tampering.

8.    RFID Signal Protection – wireless sensor networks.

Algorithms designed to increase the reliability of wireless sensor networks.

9.    Augmented reality

Concepts for mobile devices to recognize objects and provide information

10.  Service Oriented Virtual Organization (SOVO) for collaborating across organisations

SOVO is a software system design framework that enables independent organizations to collaborate in a value network to achieve a common goal (i.e. delivering value to a customer). Most importantly, it enables the partners to measure the performance of the collaborations while protecting the data of the individual organizations from unauthorized use by the other parties
