Academe-Industry Collaboration Show Values Helps Epidemic Prevention at the Forefront of Wireless physiology detection,  Highly accuratereal time early warning Reduces the risk of cross-infection
​​​​​​The “Academe-Industry Collaboration by Research Institutes Project” of the Ministry of Science and Technology promotes the commercialization of the academic research and development results, supports value-added technologies in stages, field trials, as well as start-ups and developing start-ups. During the recent rampage of the COVID-19, the Project gave support to Professor Horng, Tzyy-Sheng at National Sun Yat-sen University who finished the “Physiological signals Wireless Sensing Radar Technology” in 2015. It has become the new weapon for epidemic prevention due to its rapidity, massive scale and contactless features.

The establishment of SIL Radar Technology Inc. is the technology transfer result of the National Sun Yat-sen University which implemented the Project. This company has researched and developed a radar which can detect the respiratory frequency, heart rate, body temperature and posture remotely for 24 hours a day, to create a contactless physiological care system. It has been applied in the health care institutions to remotely monitor the physiological status of the patient and provide real-time warning messages, which reduce the opportunity of medical personnel to be in contact with the patient and avoid the risk of cross-infection.

This technology is based on the original one “Self-Injection Locked Radar” by Professor Horng in which radar waves are utilized to detect reflected signals from human bodies and physiology data are collected in a contactless manner via signal processing algorithms. It features high sensitivity (10,000 time that of the traditional radars), low power (one-hundredth of that of Wi-Fi) and low hardware cost. It can steadily detect the heart rate and respiratory frequency of humans and animals for 24 hours a day. With the help of the Academe-Industry Collaboration by Research Institutes Project, and ITRI’s proprietary technology, a compact and modular system has been born and the relevant display models are created. It has granted licensing to overseas stock farmers who use it in their dairy farms. It is used to collect the data about the body temperature, heart rate, and respiratory frequency in a contactless manner so that the farmers are informed of the physiological status of livestock for 24 hours a day. It is also applied in the pigpens.
During the outbreak of African swine fever last year (2019), it helped a lot in quarantine. During the rampage of COVID-19, the contactless physiology care system is applied to the human health detection. It can detect the respiratory frequency, heart rate, body temperature and posture of each patient in a contactless manner while analyzing the physiological status of many patients via the AI in the backend. This reduces the opportunity for the medical personnel to be in contact with the patient and the risk of cross infection. This technology has been used in the negative pressure isolation rooms in Kaohsiung Medical University. In the future, it will be introduced gradually into other medical institutions, which show the unlimited potential of academic research and development strength in Taiwan.

Since its launch in 2015, the Academe-Industry Collaboration by Research Institutes Project has built a diverse interaction channel and platform between the academe and industries by adding value to a variety of technologies in different professional fields. There have been 208 cases which received consulting, which promote the industries to invest NT$ 770 million, develop 161 new products and applications, cultivate 2,265 talents, and establish 15 startups. It also helps universities to conduct the clinic trials across countries such as the United States, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and India, and sign agent contracts with companies. This helps in our outstanding scientific technologies to be implemented in international markets.
