Investigación, Tecnología e Innovación 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Ing. Miguel Botto-Tobar, MSc Open Journal Systems <p><em>Investigación, Tecnología e Innovación</em> is a peer-reviewed open-access journal with a periodicity: annual until June 2021; quarterly since July 2021, for the divulgation and diffusion of advances in research and development in the different areas of technical, social, economic and administrative sciences through the publication of original and unpublished articles, with local and international relevance.</p> Flow and hydraulic depth monitoring system for the Hydraulic Laboratory of the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences 2021-07-31T12:51:16+00:00 Pietro Corapi Ximena Carolina Acaro Chacon Joseph Alejandro Gaibor Nieto Willian Francisco Villavicencio Bajaña <p><strong>Context:</strong> The objective of this work is to develop a system for measuring and monitoring flow and hydraulic depth for the Hydraulics Pilot Laboratory of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Guayaquil, to show flow and hydraulic depth in real time and store them in an IoT (Internet of Things) server. <strong>Method:</strong> Using the Arduino microcontroller, an MPX 5500 differential pressure sensor and HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensors for measurements according to variations in flow characteristics. <strong>Results:</strong> The IoT platform allows teachers and students to analyze the data received by each sensor in real time during hydraulics practices in the canal. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> The prototype was designed with open-source components and software. The calibration of the sensors was carried out with empirical data and practices performed in the laboratory provided by teachers of the Civil Engineering Career.</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Pietro Corapi, Ximena Carolina Acaro Chacon, Joseph Alejandro Gaibor Nieto, Willian Francisco Villavicencio Bajaña Social and corporate responsibility and its impact on the administrative management of the GAD of the Pedro Carbo canton 2021-09-05T02:22:41+00:00 Angie Mariuxi Larrea García Félix Ignacio Macías Loor <p><strong>Context:</strong> This work focuses on analyzing Social and Corporate Responsibility and its impact on the administrative management of the Decentralized Autonomous Government of the Pedro Carbo Canton. <strong>Method:</strong> The study is in the field and its purpose is to establish an approach with the study case organization, the approach with the collaborators, as well as with the department head to collect enough information according to the problem raised, for which a descriptive study, followed by a documentary review with an inductive - deductive method<strong>. Results:</strong> It is observed that in the Decentralized Autonomous Government of the state of Pedro Carbo, the implemented programs have gaps in the corporate and social responsibility policies to contribute to the management of corporate governance.<strong> Conclusions: </strong>In the Decentralized Autonomous Government through Social Management and Citizen Participation, the programs "My best years in space mode work with food", "The global development of the child at the center of the child's development mode" and " Methods of care for people with disabilities at home and in the community, rehabilitation centers for people with disabilities”. The activities carried out directly affect the stakeholders of the MIES, the mayor, the cantonal council and the technical team, the time that benefits people with disabilities, the elderly and children, benefits that are framed in the social and business responsibility policies that are carried out in the administrative management process of the Pedro Carbo Decentralized Autonomous Government.</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Angie Mariuxi Larrea García, Félix Ignacio Macías Loor Graphical interface for the analysis of audio and urban sounds (CasRem) 2021-09-06T16:30:59+00:00 Ximena Acaro María Molina Pietro Corapi Miguel Molina Villacis Gary Juliano Reamache Rivera Jossuani Viviana Castillo García <p><strong>Context:</strong> The objective of this research is to create a graphical interface to analyze the sound pressure level in audio files. <strong>Method:</strong> A series of measurements are performed in different virtual learning environments, in addition to the use of the UrbanSound database containing recordings of various sound events. <strong>Results:</strong> The proposed interface consists in two options: the first one allows access to the Noise Logger Communication Tool application of the SLM-25 sound level meter where parameters such as number of samples, time, upper and lower limits, among others, can be configured. The second option allows the analysis of audio files from different environments. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> The interface provides a basis for the study and analysis of audio, especially for the estimation of noise levels. Each audio file sample analyzed has sound pressure levels ranging from 50dB to 90dB.</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Ximena Acaro, María Molina, Pietro Corapi, Miguel Molina Villacis, Gary Juliano Reamache Rivera, Jossuani Viviana Castillo García Urban design: perspectives from cycling for the future of Guayaquil city 2021-11-17T15:14:48+00:00 Cristian Roosevelt Sáenz De Viteri Anzules <p><strong>Context:</strong> Based on a review of references and experiences at the national and international level, this article compares the particularities of cyclists with those of pedestrians and drivers in general in the city of Guayaquil. <strong>Method:</strong> It shows that cyclists have a substantial number of characteristics. privileged that justify further exploration in terms of an adequate urban project response. <strong>Results:</strong> Focusing on four ideas: community organization, strategic bike assemblies, design processes and structured projects; the document offers a framework and essential considerations for cycling-oriented urban design in the city of Guayaquil. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> It concludes with a call to seriously consider the cycling experience in future sustainable urban projects. This means moving beyond the concern for safe facilities, as well as complete networks, to a more substantial interest in the experience of the environment from the perspective of a cyclist.</p> 2021-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Cristian Roosevelt Sáenz De Viteri Anzules
