mercializing university intellectual property and conflicts that can be avoided in the process.

Camera-on-a-chip

The early development of this technology was described by its inventor, Eric Fossum, Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College. Originally designed for the U.S. space program and now commercialized, the technology is used in many products, including cell phone and web cameras, automobile safety systems, and medically for swallowable pills with embedded cameras for use in endoscopy.

Small, low cost space craft

The University of North Dakota's program to develop a template for creating a small, low cost spacecraft with the cost of parts under $5,000 was described by Jeremy Straub, Department of Computer Science. The process of designing and constructing the OpenOrbiter is providing valuable educational benefits for students as well as enabling wider future CubeSat applications, said Straub.

In vivo wireless communication

Wireless communications and networking can create a paradigm shift for minimally invasive surgeries, said Gabriel Arrobo and Richard Gitlin of the University of South Florida Department of Engineering. The reliable and efficient wireless radio frequency communications of high-definition video are important issues for in vivo communications. The presenters discussed the beneficial potential for Diversity Coding of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing to improve transmission and reliability for the in vivo environments.

Kerri Killen and Samantha Music, Versor, Inc., described their invention, the "electrogoniometer," which, as an alternative to the use of X-rays, measures the range of motion of the human spine. The device was developed especially for those who have had back surgeries and have repeated X-ray evaluation before and after surgery. They developed and patented the non-invasive device in order to reduce patient exposure to radiation that
