Each year Georgia Tech develops hundreds of technologies, and we seek industry collaborators to license and take those technologies from our labs to the market. 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 the Office of Industry Engagement team for additional technologies and information.
7596 – The assistive stairs reduce the amount of work required for ascending and descending stairs, which could be useful for older adults and those with mobility impairments. Background: Stair movement is a demanding task that limits the independence of individuals with mobility impairments such as muscle weakness, joint pain, or reduced sensorimotor control. Joint movements in the knee are... Read More
7274 – A covalent link used in conjunction with existing medical tubing to reduce/eliminate the growth of pathogenic bacteria in both medical and non-medical applications. Background: Numerous conditions, including ventilator-associated pneumonia and catheter-related urinary tract infections, are linked to the formation of biofilms and colonization of bacteria on medical tubing, which then leads...

7244 – Background: Sitting for long periods of time with little movement can cause a variety of health issues. One of the most common situations that comes to mind are individuals who are wheelchair bound, either permanently or temporarily, and can be susceptible to pressure ulcers. These ulcers can have critical effects in all aspects of life and lead to reduced mobility, longer unemployment,... Read More
5947 – Background: Body, vehicle and other types of armor rely on strength and density to prevent energy transfer from shock or stress. Shock wave and impact forces have traditionally been dealt with through the use of metal, polymer, elastic air cushioned voids, and, in the case of military armor, additional ceramic materials and composites with air voids. While heavy combat vehicles... Read More
6264 – Background: Video streaming on the Internet is exponentially increasing as exemplified by Hulu and Netflix. A video streaming technology called Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) allows video to be in a single large file, or multiple small segments. This flexibility enables companies to utilize off-the-shelf web servers for deployment of a content distribution networks (CDN)... Read More
7614 – Background: “RADAR” was originally an acronym for RAdio Detection And Ranging; hence, the very name emphasizes the natural solution radar provides for down-range profiling. Cross-range profiling in radar, on the other hand, has long been a challenging problem. Georgia Tech offers a breakthrough solution called “Solopulse” for the cross-range detection problem in both azimuth and elevation... Read More
2323 – Technology Three researchers from the School of Physics, James Gole, Peter Hesketh, and Lenward Seals, at the Georgia Institute of Technology have explored the use of porous silicon (PS) for sensor applications. The use of which in the past, in sensory applications, has been limited due to the fact that manufacture of such sensors has not been very successful. Through their research, a... Read More
Mixed Integer Programming Approaches for Treatment Planning in Radiosurgery, External Beam and Intensity Modulated Treatment Planning
2217 – Technology Three researchers from the School of Industrial Engineering, Eva Lee, Tim Fox, and Ian Crocker, at the Georgia Institute of Technology have explored optimization algorithms based on mixed integer programming techniques. During the research of these techniques, an invention for generating high-quality treatment plans for LINAC radiosurgery treatment was developed. The physical... Read More
1945 – Background Currently, heat exchangers on vehicles are typically placed substantially perpendicular to an air flow and towards the front of the vehicle, which requires a large frontal area on the vehicle, thereby producing a high associated drag. Private and commercial vehicles usually employ a heat exchanger commonly referred to as a “radiator” to effect heat transfer. As illustrated, the... Read More
6957 – Background: Interconnects in electronic systems are a basic building block that enable electrical signals to move through the different components of the system. The capability of the interconnect to transport signals reliably is a critical factor in high performance electronic systems. Overcoming barriers in the development of interconnect technology can lead to higher performance computing... Read More
