NUS Industry Liaison Office (ILO) is the technology translation and commercialization arm of NUS. Over the last five years, ILO has played a pivotal role in getting more than 580 patents granted and more than 60 technology-based companies being spunoff from NUS. In addition to managing and commercializing NUS’ intellectual assets, ILO leverages its deep industry knowledge and network to build strong bonds in numerous technical domains.
Technologies are searchable by category, key word, or phrase and include a detailed description of the technology, inventor and patent information, and contact information to learn more about each technology.
Our available technologies are updated periodically but please feel free contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional technologies and information.
2018-329 – Market Opportunity According to World Health Organization, 60–90% of young population and nearly all adults have dental cavities. A significant increase in the prevalence of dental caries among the young populations is mainly due to unhealthy lifestyle (i.e. fatty and junk food intake), smoking, and excessive consumption of alcohol. Due to the growing awareness of dental hygiene, there is... Read More
2018-222 – Market Opportunity The global Alzheimer’s disease (AD) diagnostic market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10% and reach USD 12 billion by the end of 2022. There is currently no single diagnostic test that can determine whether a person has Alzheimer’s disease. Although there is over 90% probability of making the right diagnosis with a variety of approaches... Read More
16117n – Modern Internet applications, such as online commercial websites and mobile game applications, normally generate a large volume of user behavioral data. Cohort analysis is a powerful data exploration technique for finding unusual user behavior trends from large activity datasets using the concept of cohort. However, one limitation of classical cohort analysis is that time is the only... Read More
2017-286 – Magnetic sensors detect and measure magnetic fields and is a critical component as well as a key limiting factor in terms of sensitivity and spatial resolution in many applications. For example in energy generation and distribution, military, aerospace, medical electronics, automotive, manufacturing and process automation. NUS’ high resolution magnetic sensor is highly sensitive and... Read More
16032n – Market Opportunity More than 20 million tons of electronic waste are produced every year. Cyanide leaching is by far commonly used for the recovery of precious metals, especially gold and silver from ores, concentrates and waste materials due to its high recovery and low cost. However, exposure to large doses of cyanide deprives the cells from using oxygen and hence resulting in cell... Read More
2016-155 – Gas detection and measurement is spread across green building, safety alarms, agriculture and greenhouses, medical field, food transportation and storage. At present carbon dioxide (CO2) detection is becoming more important in areas such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), indoor air quality (IAQ) and automotive applications. Furthermore, monitoring of CO2 in... Read More
2018-004 – The Internet of Things (IoT), while still in its infancy is shaping the future of many industries and will also impact our daily lives in significant ways. One of the key challenges of moving IoT devices from concept to reality is to have long-lasting operation under tightly constrained energy sources, thus demanding extreme power efficiency. IoT devices – such as sensors – are often... Read More
2017-256 – Market Opportunity In hospitals, patients’ vital signs need to be collected periodically at regular intervals. With digitalization and advances in sensors and network technology, there is increasingly more and more wireless wearable vital signs monitoring systems such as temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and ECG. However, one common limitation of current systems is that the... Read More
2018-122 – Industry Problem Air resistance or drag can be divided into pressure drag and skin friction drag. While pressure drag can easily bereduced through streamlining, no such simple method exists for minimizing skin friction drag. Fast streamlinedvehicles such as airplanes, high speed trains and Formula 1 cars experience significant skin friction drag, limitingmaximum speeds and requiring huge... Read More
2018-113 – Industry Problem Traditional shopping carts comprise two wheels, one on each side. There are also multi-wheel (eg. 3-wheel) designs available. Unfortunately, these traditional designs pose certain disadvantages. In traditional two wheel trolleys, the user has to put in more effort to overcome obstacles and experiences jerks when trying to pull the trolley on uneven terrain. In multi-wheel... Read More
