Technologies and jobs

Over the past two decades, more than seventeen spin-off companies have licensed Clemson University technologies, and many of these companies have been established near Clemson. Clemson start-up companies have created more than a hundred jobs in the advanced material, biomedical device, and information technology sectors. Many of these jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree and offer salaries well above the per capita income of South Carolina.

The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF), through its Office of Technology Transfer, guides the development of start-up ventures and commercializes the university’s intellectual property. Over the past twenty years, Clemson has licensed more than forty-five technologies to start-up companies, generating more than $400,000 in license revenue.

Here are several examples of start-ups that have licensed Clemson technologies:

Twelve years ago, four Clemson faculty members got together and decided to create some new materials. They didn’t set out to start a business, hire a work force, or establish a brand.

“We thought about the obesity problem,” Muth says. “They have pedometers to track steps. What if we had something to track bites?”

 


 

The team’s patented technology builds a background model that adapts to changing light and weather conditions and tracks vehicles over time by comparing their appearance in successive frames.
