15066 – Optimization of power consumption by embedded peripherals Abstract The overall cost of an embedded system can be reduced significantly by minimizing its power requirements and maximizing its performance. Typically peripheral power control is static which does not cater to fine –grained intra-operation performance details. Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS) is implemented in systems... Read More
14086 – Algorithm to resolve the subspace clustering problem in image sequences and videos in real-time Abstract Subspace clustering is a major problem in the areas of unsupervised learning, computer vision, disease detection, face clustering, and image segmentation. During the process of dimensionality reduction or clustering a collection of unlabeled data points, it is assumed that the high... Read More
13130 – Novel methodology to transfer HVDC power on existing three phase AC transmission lines. Abstract High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is preferred to High Voltage Alternating Current for bulk transmission of power over long distances due to lower capital costs and reduction in transmission losses. The electric power transmission industry is working to facilitate reliable transmission of... Read More
14240 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize specific combinations of bio-control agents to enhance agronomically important traits such as growth and disease resistance in commercial crops Abstract The question of how to feed the worlds growing population is becoming increasingly important and features highly on the agenda of many countries. By 2050, the population of the world... Read More
12187 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel method for capturing and detecting human noroviruses (HuNoV). A US Provisional Patent has been filed for this application. Abstract Human Noroviruses (HuNoV) are a leading cause of acute viral gastroenteritis worldwide, and cause over 50% of food borne illness in the United States resulting in significant morbidity and...

15124 – NC State is currently seeking a partner to commercilize a a modular green roof system designed for slopes of 25% and greater. Summary Urban sprawl has resulted in a general reduction of green space. Cities are currently struggling to manage storm water runoff, due in part to this reduction in green space. Replacement costs for roofs and general energy use trends are also increasing. ... Read More
14230 – NCSU is currently seeking an industry partner to commercialize new genome editing tools utilising novel Type II CRISPR-Cas9 systems from GRAS organisms. Two provisional patent applications related to this invention have been filed. Abstract In recent years, widespread application of genome editing tools has enabled the ag-biotech industry to breed crops with desirable agronomical traits,... Read More
14138 – NCSU is seeking industry partners to commercialize a novel gene silencing tool utilising the Type I CRISPR-Cas system. NCSU has filed a provisional patent application relating to this invention. Abstract Gene silencing has become an indispensable tool in the biotech industry and has been used to accelerate drug discovery, screening, disease model development and GM crop production. In...

14035 – Innovative software product for Heat Monitoring in Christie Microtiles. Abstract Christie Digital’s modular micro-tiles are widely used to create large video displays for various stage shows and advertisement boards in public spaces. Since these tiles can be arranged to create displays of large complex non-standard shapes, every tile is exposed to varied amounts of heat. Consequently, it... Read More
15001 – An advanced and highly efficient structure for oil mist collection. Abstract Oil mist pollution can damage sensitive electronic circuitry and other industrial machinery leading to lost productivity and increased costs. In addition, long term exposure to oil mist from machine operations has been shown to lead to increased risks of developing certain cancers and presents a known occupational... Read More
