Device, determining vital signs of a subject based on reflected and transmitted light

A device, system and method for determining vital signs of a subject is presented that improves accuracy and reliability, the device comprising a detection unit for contactless detection of light in at least two different wavelength ranges from a region of interest of a subject, wherein said detection unit is configured to detect a first light portion in a first wavelength range from light reflected from said region of interest in response to illumination by a first light source and to detect a second light portion in a second wavelength range from light transmitted through said region interest in response to illumination by a second light source, wherein said detection unit is configured to detect said first light portion and said second light portion simultaneously in response to illuminations that are at least temporarily simultaneous and wherein said first wavelength range and said second wavelength range are different. A processing unit is provided for deriving plethysmography, ppg, signals from the detected light for said at least two different wavelength ranges.

Integration of surface heating to control pests

Disclosed are designs and methods for integrating heating film onto surfaces and enclosures that are useful for preventing the infestation of pests. Specifically, designs to increase the effective heating area and location of said heating film within enclosures such as suitcases.


Footprint for prototyping high frequency printed circuit boards

A pcb footprint consisting of a plurality of pads, positioned such that many different electronic components can be mounted which would otherwise require a custom circuit board. One or more of the leads can be connected via a low-impedance path to a ground plane, making a suitable platform for prototyping high-frequency designs..


System and alerting a user on an external device of notifications or alerts originating from a network-connected device

Users are experiencing an increasing number of alerts and notifications on their mobile devices. When it is inconvenient or not possible to view the network-connected device, an accessory can be used to save time and avoid missing notifications.
