Technology Transfer

We participate in the evaluation of technologies during the entire innovation cycle, starting from technology trigger to the buildup and burst of technology bubble and then to the reemergence and maturity of technology.  During the prototype development stage, we perform validation studies to determine whether a technology is implementable and practice ready.  During the implementation phase, our technology transfer efforts include market analysis, hands-on training, short courses, workshops, conference and symposia exhibits, presentations, and public outreach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Transformational Technologies

We are engaged in identifying futuristic and transformational technologies and then pursuing some of those technologies during different stages of their innovation cycle, including assessment of implementability, prototype development, validation studies, and technology transfer.  In a recent article, HPTech staff identified and listed the following such transformational technologies:

  • Vehicle and highway automation

  • Big data

  • Internet of Things (IOT)

  • Nanotechnology

  • Geospatial data acquisition

  • Advanced computer modeling

  • Carbon sequestration technologies

  • Greenhouse gas emission control technologies

  • Noise and vibration mitigation technologies

  • Next generation air traffic navigation technologies

  • Alternative fuel technologies

  • Critical infrastructure protection technologies

  • Advanced environmental remediation technologies for ground contamination

  • Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology

  • Remote construction quality control/quality assurance (QA/QC) technologies

  • Integrated asset management technologies

  • Advanced highway safety technologies (e.g. enforced speed control)

  • Advanced airport safety technologies

  • Advanced underwater inspection and monitoring technologies

  • Safe hazardous materials transport technologies
