Advanced Technologies Applied to Care Services: Preventing Harm

This article was first published on Taku International's website in the context of that company's technology offering supporting care services. However, since I wrote it and I'm interested in wearables (and by extension AR)  and sensors, I'm republishing it here. I'll go into some of the underlying technology topics in more detail in the future. The [...]

Sensor Fusion & Mountains – Aconcagua, part 1

I’m excited to start thinking ahead to my next adventure - on Aconcagua. Besides looking forward to a fantastic trip, I’m figuring out how I can combine two of my main interests, outdoor/endurance adventure and science/engineering. With increasing interest across a variety of industries in technologies for “extreme environments”, this seems entirely reasonable to me.  [...]

Cyber-Physical-Biological Symbiotic Systems

I’m interested in cyber-physical-biological symbiotic relationships from several angles.  Focusing here on the larger scale, you might look at it from an infrastructure point of view.  With today’s expanding IoT and communications network scope and functionality, we may think frequently about increasing sensing capabilities in our environment, However, we tend to think in terms of [...]
