Nano Bot launched to help predict/ alert of infections earlier

Nano Global, an Austin, Texas-based company focused on accelerating cures to address global health challenges, has announced plans for a limited release of its first generation Nano Bot device to monitor and convey environmental data critical to human health and disease control.

The first generation Nano Bot, featuring an Arm based microcontroller and array of environmental sensors, will be deployed initially at healthcare and research facilities operated by some of Nano’s close strategic partners. This marks an important milestone in Nano’s ability to monitor sensitive environments for health threats by collecting ambient environmental information to better understand, predict, and rectify threats such as antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and superbugs. Data acquired through Nano Bots provides an important data stream to the company’s broader data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) platform called Nano Sense.

“Implementing this technology in healthcare facilities aligns perfectly with our mission to provide the best care for patients while furthering important research to better understand how our environment creates and contributes to health threats,” said Dr. Peter J. Hotez, M.D., Ph.D., professor of pediatrics and molecular virology & microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, director of Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development and U.S. Science Envoy.

The company’s Nano Sense system-on-chip (SoC) , currently under development in partnership with Arm, will power future Nano Bot and partner devices to enable data acquisition and AI at the edge, accelerating detection, prevention, and treatment of health threats.

“For Nano and its affiliates, the release of our first-generation Nano Bot device signals an important step in our mission to help fight global health threats,” said Steve Papermaster, chairman and CEO of Nano. “We believe our technology platform is a game-changer for detecting and understanding critical elements of health and look forward to building on this exciting momentum.”

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
