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.

5003 – Background: Although fuel cells have the potential to deliver clean energy, their promise has not yet been realized. Traditional proton or cation exchange membrane (PEM or CEM) fuel cells are expensive, in large part due to the price and future availability of the platinum-based catalyst. Anion exchange membranes (AEMs) are being investigated as a promising alternative to PEMs and CEMs. Most... Read More
5318 – Background The payload oscillation, inherent to all cranes, makes it challenging for human operators to manipulate payloads quickly, accurately, and safely. Furthermore, typical crane-control interfaces require the operator to push buttons, depress levers, or move joysticks. These devices do not have an intuitive correspondence with the resulting crane motion. Therefore, the operator... Read More
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
