US-based security networks provider MachineTalker has acquired Micro Wireless Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of technology transfer company Utek to enhance its radio frequency product line.
According to the company, Micro Wireless has a worldwide exclusive license to a technology developed by researchers at the University of South Florida (USF), which embeds physical and chemical property sensing capabilities within radio frequency (RF) transmission systems.
Jaideep Rajput, licensing manager at USF said: We are very excited about working with MachineTalker as they help to develop and commercialize our technology.
Roland Bryan, president at MachineTalker said: The addition of these telemetric micro-sensors will permit the formation of wireless clusters of sensors around each MachineTalker to monitor and process patterns of change at a remote location. We believe that with this technology our customers will be able to deploy small detectors, serviced by a local processor as part of a larger network for monitoring intrusion or environmental changes.
Utek is engaged in acquiring technologies from developers and selling it to clients. In July 2007, Utek sold WebMed Technologies to Pathway One, a UK-based IT company and also the assets of Non-Destructive Assessment Technologies to Material Technologies.
