IP protection




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?
The problem of queues that occur in different places (Post Offices, Banks, Doctor Clinics, Supermarkets and so on)







What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
Until now, the problem has been partially solved through the use of queue management systems where the user comes to the desired location, takes a ticket number and waits for his/her turn.

The present project proposes an innovative queue management system where the user can stay synchronized with the status of the line, through an application installed on his/her Android smartphone.







What is the potential for further research?
- informing the user if his/her distance is too large to meet the time limit

- advertising







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







What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
The team has to define the system and afterwards the following will be possible:

1) software protection

2) patent search

3) (maybe) filing a patent application







What is your overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
The project is already developed
