  • Calculating Error: What do a brain and a ship have in common?

As systems became more complex during the industrial revolution there was increased interest in the automatic control of such systems, one of which being the automatic steering of ships.

  • Waking up from the Maternity Leave dreamland

    Written and illustrated by: Polly Britton Project Engineer, Plextek People sometimes want to know what it’s like being a female engineer, but it’s really just like being a male engineer who goes into a different bathroom. Becoming a mother and primary care giver adds a completely new dimension to the question, though. I just got back from six months of maternity leave, for the second time in my career, and it’s slightly surreal. As more women are encouraged to go into engineering as a field of study and a career, we may soon see more and more women going through this transformation of engineer into mother, and then into an engineer-mother hybrid.

  • Developing Software Defined Radio applications with OpenCPI

    By: Robert Littlejohns Consultant, Plextek Wireless technologies are always evolving and becoming more complex to meet the ever-increasing capacity, reliability and security demands of customers. The most prominent example of this is the ongoing rollout of the 5G mobile phone network. Over time, the 5G standard will improve and gain new features. With the cost of deploying such a network nationwide in the billions of pounds, the ability for a network operator to modify the functionality of their base stations with a software update is very attractive. This can be achieved using Software Defined Radios (SDRs).
