University of Michigan Key Developments

University of Michigan Joins the Apervita Community to Commercialize Health Analytics

Apervita, Inc. announced the University of Michigan has joined the Apervita community to commercialize the university’s portfolio of medical algorithms, assessments and protocols. Through Apervita, an agreement concluded with U-M Tech Transfer will enable leading university clinicians and researchers to author and publish their research as computable analytics, which can be offered to any health enterprise through the Apervita marketplace. Over time the University of Michigan plans to make available a broad selection of their health analytics through Apervita. Initially they will focus on the areas of cardiology, diabetes, and wellness.

University of Michigan Opens MCity

Navistar International Corporation announced opening of MCity, the University of Michigan's one-of-a-kind test site for connected and automated vehicles. MCity is a 32-acre simulated urban and suburban environment that features a network of roads with intersections, traffic signs and signals, streetlights, building facades, sidewalks and construction obstacles. Operated by U-M's Mobility Transformation Center (MTC), the public-private research and development partnership aims to develop a commercially viable ecosystem of connected and automated driverless vehicles. A key goal of the MTC initiative and MCity is to implement a connected and automated mobility system on the streets of southeastern Michigan by 2021.

Tekcapital plc Acquires Licensing Rights to Two Technologies from University of Michigan and Georgia Tech Research Corporation

Tekcapital plc announced that it has acquired the licencing rights to two technologies that are intended to enable the commercialization of energy harvesting from human movement to power mobile technologies. Power Generation Device: Tekcapital has acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to a piezoelectric electro-mechanical device, from the University of Michigan with patents pending (US 2014/012690). This device may be incorporated into footwear, apparel, sporting goods and recreational equipment to harvest the energy generated through vibrations. The device itself is particular in that it combines principles of micro electro-mechanical systems originally designed to capture the energy generated by the vibrations of a beating heart, in order to charge the battery of a pacemaker implant. This patent pending technology goes towards the development of new, super-small, power generation devices that may be incorporated into footwear, apparel, sporting goods and recreational equipment. Battery Charger Circuit: Additionally, Tekcapital announced that it has acquired the exclusive worldwide license to a patented (US 8,368,290) rectifier-free, energy harvester/battery-charger circuit from the Georgia Tech Research Corporation. This technology conditions the AC (alternating current) from a piezoelectric transducer, such as that licensed from the University of Michigan, for the efficient conversion into DC (direct current). The AC to DC conversion losses using this circuit have been demonstrated to be a fraction of the conversion losses experienced when using other more established rectifier based technologies. The DC from this efficient battery-charger circuit therefore has the potential to be used to charge the batteries incorporated in wearable devices, such as smart watches, wearable health monitors and portable devices, such as smart phones and tablet computers. The design of the circuit consists of a piezoelectric-based harvester system, which extracts small amounts of energy from the environment and stores it in a power cache. The Board believes that the key innovation lies in the ability to reliably convert small amounts of energy from a variety of transducers for future use, while minimizing the energy loss necessary to perform the process. This patented and scalable design allows for bypassing input-voltage requirements while providing energy savings and has been shown to induce up to four times more energy than normal rectifier-based harvester circuits.
