Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?

Today, the technology for the automation of doors and gates, has reached a high degree of quality and reliability since the growing demand for these automated systems,  SEA is able to provide products with the characteristics of reliability, quality and mechanical simplicity and high overall quality and not for residential use. Essential for proper functioning of these automatic devices are radio-controlled components that allow remote management and wireless thereby increasing the comfort and quality of life offered. The system designed by SEA provides multiple advantages to the installer that the user equipment. The OPEN PLUS system (programmer-transmitter)allows programming and operation of radio receivers and systems, the file management system, editing, and tagging and remote management of PCs. The intuition and the innovation proposed by the Company for the control and management of the radio-controlled transmitters and receivers has been to achieve an efficient product, integrated with all systems rolling-code and able to operate remotely through the use PC or Smartphone.

What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?

The development of technology has allowed us to create automated systems for opening and closing of gates, garage and bar street, going to greatly increase the comfort and quality of life for users, avoiding to get down and get the car to open and close the gate, especially on rainy days can be quite annoying.
Initially, the wireless systems were devoid of adjustments for the safety compared to the intrusion into the system, and still had to be programmed and edited in place with the intervention of a specialized operator. Today, thanks to this innovative system control, management and programming can be done remotely via PC without the presence of an operator and thus saving time and money.

What is the potential for further research?

This product has been designed to meet a variety of users worldwide, and therefore characterized by a high quality and flexibility. In fact, it fits with all devices rolling code receivers and transmitters. It is a product currently in use, with the qualitative characteristics and design very high, which might have other stages of development particularly with regard to future marketing strategies and redesign of the image.

What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)

The product has been patented and National Patent Office automation is marked EN Tested: this means that it was produced and tested according to strict criteria of European standards relating to the impact force, ready for this to be easily certified on site by the installer.

What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?

For the filing of the patent procedure involves an initial phase that includes the filing of the application, the examination of formal requirements, the quest for novelty and the publication, after 18 months from the filing of the application and the research report. It follows the examination phase proper, which begins at the request of the inventor, who must also pay the fee for examination, without which the patent application is considered to be abandoned. By the time the patent examination can be accepted or rejected, and you can oppose the decision of preparing a special appeal. The European patent may be an independent patent application or be incorporated as a regional patent within international patent application, in this second case we speak of Euro-PCT. The cost for the presentation of a European patent application varies depending on the number of states chosen and includes the filing fees and research, translation and expenses for the preparation of the application. Once the novelty seeking, paid the examination fee you get the acceptance or rejection of a patent. If the patent is granted, you have to pass the validation state by state, making the translation into the language of every nation and paying the required fee. To register a patent in Italy and keep him alive, ranging from a minimum of 50 euro (summary electronically) to 600 euro for the summary paper of the idea over 50 pages. To protect every year over the fourth to be paid from 60 to 650 euro up to the twentieth, after which the invention is free. Plus the use of private consultants, which change depending on the project and must be at least 2-3 thousand euro. To protect the world a couple of years should follow the procedure PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty), by filing an application at WIPO in Geneva, the World Intellectual Property Organization.

What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?

Specifically, the scientific maturity of the product appears to be quite high for both performance that is capable of ensuring both for the security it provides, respecting all the certification standards European and international level. The company SEA is committed to continually create innovations in anticipation of market demands, thus producing a considerable number of patents. I recently built systems have technological solutions that have made ​​significant improvement sin automation ensuring reliability, safety and proper operation with the creation and continuous updating of advanced diagnostic systems monitored directly online form engineering SEA.
