inRes 2016 Teams
at: UPTEC, Porto
The Porto-based team with a Biomechanics
Surf PhD and Mechanical background, All
in Surf has
developed and patented a device that allows data capturing during a water sliding session. Detected by an embedded sensor, all of the athlete’s movements
and the flow of the water moving below the object sailing are recorded. The
data is analyzed by an intelligent algorithm that assesses the performance and
allows the athlete to evolve consciously. More recently it is also being applied to land based sports, such as skate.

Daniela Lopes e Marco Garcia
are representing Helppier on inRes 2016, a startup that helps companies
to create their own tutorials and tooltips directly on their website. This
facilitates new users/visitors, or even new employees, to learn on their own,
directly on the website as they go. It is a new way of customer service that
provides an interactive help guide directly on the page. Helppier is also one
of the 66 selected startups to participate in the Web Summit 2016, in Lisbon.

A startup out of the Instituto de
Telecomunicações in Aveiro, TWEvo, has developed a technology to improve
the video transmission captured by drone cameras. Carlos Ribeiro e Eduardo Castañeda developed a set of connectors that
provide a strong wireless link to the drone’s camera with sub-millisecond
response time. Based on software defined radio concept, this adaptable technology
is able to maintain its high throughput datalink and performance in movement scenarios, like flight.
Incubated at: Institute of Systems and Robotics, Universidade de Coimbra
Smart Insole, a startup based in Coimbra, is working on a flexible
insole, fitted with sensors that make accurate measurements of the feet
pressure distribution and gait, to determine the best corrective shoe or
insole. This flexible insole sensor technology provides a way to comfortably analyze the users’ gait and his/her
particular needs in order to create a tailored product and also, later, check
the adequacy of the product to the user.
Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program’s inRes Sends Four Entrepreneurial Teams to the USA more
inRes 2016 Has Already Started more
Launched in 2014 by the CMU Portugal Program, funded
by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (Portuguese funding
agency), inRes is an intense and challenging program that requires a
great deal of commitment from the teams, but at the same time an
extremely rewarding experience that allows participants to validate and
develop their projects in the future, as they get to contact with
partners such as Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA), and INESC TEC.
