  • Can Radar Be Used for Medical Imaging & Monitoring?

    By Nigel Whittle, Head of Medical and Healthcare at Plextek Ltd. Medical imaging is one of the most important technologies available to doctors and other medical workers, providing critical information for diagnosis and treatment. There is however no single technology for imaging of internal structures that is universally applicable to all tissues, has high resolution, is inexpensive, doesn’t use ionizing radiation, and creates images in real-time. An ideal system would also be portable and low-cost, with the potential for use in ambulances and other out-of-hospital environments. In recent years a substantial body of experimental work has been performed to apply microwave and radar technologies to the field of medical imaging and biosensing.

    The COVID-19 pandemic remains at the forefront of people’s minds and the world is looking to utilise helpful technologies to come up with solutions. One of the most obvious signs of infection is a raised body temperature. Being able to detect this in a visitor on arrival can protect occupants and also help warn the individual, who may not know that they could be infected. Of course there are many simple ways to measure human body temperature but a preferred solution is to capture the information quickly and automatically, transparently to the individual being checked, and without contact.

  • Transportation IOT: Keeping our roads safe

    By: Nick Koiza, Head of Security Business at Plextek Ltd As we all start moving around our transport systems again, I am reminded almost daily by the risks and safety concerns linked to our congested road systems. I have a vision that the public should be able to travel easily without worrying about safety on the roads. Aside from education, vehicle servicing, and standard infrastructure maintenance, I believe IoT technologies will significantly enhance the safety of our public whilst they use our road networks. The transportation industry is a huge investor in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), spending approximately $78 billion from 2016-2018. Safety is a part of ‘Transportation IOT’ that is vital for overall success. In this blog, I list what I consider to be the top 5 areas of transport safety that can be enhanced by IoT technologies:

  • Can Trump rapidly deploy his ‘miracle cure’?

    By: Nigel Whittle, Head of Medical and Healthcare a Plextek Ltd Last Friday Donald Trump was treated with an antibody cocktail made by the biotech company Regeneron. His recovery has prompted him to call for the drug to be made available to all US citizens through an Emergency Use Authorization. However, the safety and effectiveness of the drug have not yet been proven, and there is no way for the President or his doctors to know that the drug had any effect as most people recover from COVID-19. As the Metro states today: “Trump is just one of 10 people receiving the drug, which is still in the experimental phase and is intended to boost antibodies to fight the infection”. Is it logistically possible to fulfil Trump’s statement and take a drug from small scale testing to Nationwide rollout? In this blog, we unravel a bit of the situation.

  • The mm-Wave Antenna Approach

    By: James Henderson, Senior Consultant at Plextek Ltd Over the past eight years of my career, I’ve been fortunate enough to work on several different cutting-edge projects here at Plextek including a number of mm-wave designs. These have included both research programmes and product development, covering radar sensors, communication systems, and medical applications. This has given me a great depth of experience into different approaches to meet our customer’s specific requirements. Over this time, I have found that one of the most challenging aspects of working in this frequency range is the integration of mm-wave front-end electronics with an optimised antenna solution, to provide an efficient, and controlled radiation pattern.

  • Is 5G the Answer to Connectivity for Industrial IoT?

    By: Shahzad Nadeem, Head of Smart Cities at Plextek As the first cellular network technology designed to support industrial use cases, 5G is billed to become the basis for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and enabler for Industry 4.0 technologies, such as VR, AR and AI. Certainly, the promises of super-fast data 5G rates, ultra-low latency and vastly increased network capacity are essential for the high-quality connectivity demands of the industrial sector. But will 5G live up to expectations? What are the challenges and opportunities? And when can we expect to see widespread adoption of the technology?

  • Are Friends Electric? Our Future Lives with Robots

    By: Nigel Whittle, Head of Medical and Healthcare at Plextek Ltd. The Czech writer Karel Čapek set his play ‘Rossum’s Universal Robots’ in the year 2000, and in his timeline, robots became cheap and widely available, allowing products to be made at one fifth the previous cost[1]. In our universe, robots have become, if not commonplace, at least an accepted feature of the working environment. From the first examples of automated production lines (perhaps most famously in the Nissan car factory) through to robots designed for delicate surgery, we are becoming accustomed to robots having an increasingly prominent role.

  • On uncertainty, being wrong and taking the next right step

    By: Alan Cucknell, Head of Ignite Exponential - Plextek's innovation unit. Watching the daily news briefings from both sides of the Atlantic it is interesting to observe how often leaders can be trapped by trying to have all the answers. Perhaps it’s not their fault but something in our society’s expectations that leaders will “show us what the ending will be“; “tell us all the steps we need to follow” or "give us a guarantee". As a result, leaders can fear the implications of a “U-turn”.
