TSSG’s Peter Scanlon, Martin Tolan & Ryan Stubbs participate in NDRC’s Pre-Commercialisation Programme run in partnership with EI & SFI.

Martin Tolan of TSSG said the experience is “The ultimate validation for researchers trying to commercialise their ideas is when there is a proven unfulfilled market need for their products. Researchers can often be biased towards the technologies and innovations in their chosen fields without consideration of the market need so having access to this pre-commercialisation program in the NDRC is removing the mystery around and helping us to understand how to get our ideas to market.”

The new NDRC programme is all about connecting research innovators with the business community.

NDRC’s Dublin base will be the headquarters for its five-month Pre-Commercialisation Programme in partnership with Enterprise Ireland and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

14 teams of researchers from nine institutions around the country are taking part in the third iteration of the NDRC initiative.

A wide variety of participants

Participating institutions include two SFI research centres – Irish Photonic Integration Centre and Connect Centre – as well as Dublin Institute of Technology, Waterford Institute of Technology, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, University of Limerick, Maynooth University, Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University.

The programme aims to give research teams key business skills and figure out ways to commercialise deep research, ultimately connecting academic researchers to the business, tech and entrepreneurial communities in Ireland’s buzzing start-up ecosystem.

Smart Glove as developed by TSSG, Tyndall and Design Partners, Cork.

Aimed at virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR) and robotics, the smart glove developed by researchers from the Tyndall National Institute has been designed as a haptic human computer interface system, complete with multiple sensors and actuators distributed across each finger.

To be showcased at CES, the smart glove was developed as part of an innovative project between the Wireless Sensor Networks group at Tyndall National Institute, Ireland and project leads Telecommunications Software & Systems Group (TSSG) in Waterford Institute of Technology. Bray based, Product and Interaction Design Consultancy, Design Partners, were engaged as human factors engineering and industrial design experts for the project.

“The smart glove for HCI is a culmination of over a decade of research in the development of motion sensing for the human body and incorporates the latest sensing technologies needed to bridge the human and digital worlds of Augmented/Virtual Reality and robotics” wrote Dr Brendan O’Flynn, Head of Tyndall’s Wireless Sensor Networks group, in an email exchange with eeNews Europe.
