“Hybrid operating rooms” may sound like something from a sci-fi novel, but they already exist, including at the St George’s University Hospitals Trust in London.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has created a new ecosystem of connected electronic devices that communicate with each other to provide customised functionality in many fields, including medicine.
Imagine a world where the word “hospital” is unheard of! This could be reality in a few decades’ time, when all health information will be recorded and monitored remotely via sensors.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about sensor-laden devices in the home and office, but also in industry, medicine and even combat, among other places.
This column is dedicated to a project involving thirteen analogue input modules and seven analogue output modules for use with a 5V microcontroller through its ADC and DAC channels.
Modern industry is being transformed by a new generation of ‘collaborative robots’, or ‘cobots’, which typically work alongside people to provide additional strength, control, flexibility and safety.
Modular digitisers enable accurate, high-resolution data acquisition for quick transfer to a host computer. Signal processing functions, whether applied in the digitiser or the host computer, enhance the acquired data or extract useful information from a simple measurement.
