The Office for Technology Commercialization invites you to learn more about emerging software technologies and startup opportunities from the University of Minnesota. Don’t miss a presentation from special guest, University of Minnesota Computer Science Professor, John Riedl, entitled “Motivating Active Participation in Social Media Networks.”

The showcase will feature technologies including:


  • Driver Assistive System: a portfolio of technologies that provide vehicle navigation assistance in low visibility conditions.
  • High Precision Vehicle Navigation: a navigation system utilizing inexpensive inertial and image sensors for precise position and orientation in GPS-denied scenarios, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Autonomous Vehicles.
  • Evacuation Route Planning Software: identifies and highlights the most efficient set of routes to minimize the transit time for emergency evacuations and large event traffic dispersions.

Medical Education & Simulation

  • Novel curricula and simulation models to drive healthcare education from surgery to patient education.
  • A system and method for virtual prototyping, design, verification, and manufacture of medical devices.

Technology in Education

  • Two computer-based assessment technologies that provide educators with screening, progress monitoring and skills analysis tools for elementary education.
