Companies that embrace the IoS and not the IoT will be the winners in the new connected world.
TTP's Steve Taylor explains why when you cut through the hype around the Internet of Things (IoT), it’s the Internet of Sensors (IoS) and resulting data that matters most.
“The IoT is, to a large extent, a solution looking for a problem, rather than the other way round,” says Steve Taylor, a senior consultant at TTP. “There’s simply no point in objects talking to each other just for the sake of it and the IoT only provides the communications backbone. An Internet of Sensors looks more like the roots of a tree, with sensors of all types at the extremities, capturing and feeding data upwards to the main trunk – the Internet.”
Connecting things over the internet is certainly not new. TTP has been working on machine to machine (M2M) and even organism to machine applications for over 20 years, from sensors to monitor cow herds to sensors in orthopaedic joints and F1 engines. “The IoT hype...

TTP and Mayflower win 'Best Application of The Internet of Things'
Michael Barkway from TTP looks at the current state of play for the IoT without the hype and takes a look into the future.
The term Internet of Things, or IoT, encompasses everything from existing developments in machine-to-machine communications to the newest wearable devices. The vision of the IoT world is that every Thing is connected and discoverable from its own IP address, sharing information freely.
But will the future really be like this? There are good reasons to think that it won’t. This article analyses the nature of the IoT and sets out some of the challenges and opportunities for the next phase of its deployment.
The web today is mostly horizontal – pages of open information, with revenues derived directly through purchasing or indirectly via advertising.

TTP, a leading UK technology and product development company, has recently developed an innovative new approach to the intracellular delivery of macromolecules and nano-particles into cells at high speed and high volume. This new technique could have major implications for a range of cellular applications including the transfection of cells with DNA material. TTP has already successfully demonstrated the transport of antibodies into cells and is now beginning to explore other biomolecules and the full capabilities of this exciting technology. This technology relies on a physical effect alone and does not require chemical, electrical poration or biological vectors to enable transport into the cell.
It has been known for some time that relaxation of cell membranes as a result of deformation leads to transient poration to allow molecules or other particles to enter the cell. However, existing approaches to harness this effect typically rely on the use of microfluidics and require pu...

The Atlas io™ system enables healthcare professionals to ‘test and treat’ within 30 minutes in their own offices and clinics.
TTP is delighted to announce that it has completed development of the Atlas io™ Reader instrument for Atlas Genetics. The Atlas io™ system is set to revolutionise the diagnosis of infectious diseases by bringing down the time required to take a patient sample and make a diagnosis to less than thirty minutes. This compares with the typical three to ten day turnaround traditionally required to achieve the same diagnosis through a central lab.
The Atlas io™ Reader operates with a test-specific disposable reagent cartridge and fully automates a three-stage process of DNA extraction and purification, DNA amplification, and electrochemical detection of the target infection. The operator simply adds the patient's sample to the cartridge, inserts it into the Reader, and follows on-screen prompts to make the diagnosis.
Achieving this level of simplicity for users ...

TTP, a leading UK-based technology and product development company, has come up with an innovative approach to gas sensing that radically cuts cost, size and power consumption. The new ultrasonic sensor uses patent-pending TTP technology to precisely measure the speed of sound in a gas to determine its composition and can also be connected wirelessly to the Internet for remote monitoring and data collection.
Drawing on TTP’s expertise in nonlinear acoustics and piezoelectric technology, the new SonicSense devices will cost between £3 and £6 each in volume production. TTP is investigating a wide range of industrial and medical applications, from gas safety and process control to respiratory monitoring and anaesthesia. Once the speed of sound through the gas is measured, thermal compensation is applied before the composition of a binary gas mixture is calculated. Additional bulk gas properties such as density can also be determined using the same sensor architecture to enable more co...

Leading Cambridge-based technology innovation company TTP has been awarded a research project by UK radio regulator Ofcom to assess the potential for future improvements in the performance of radio receivers, in particular for TV. The project builds on a previous research programme conducted by TTP for Ofcom in 2009.
As demands on spectrum increase, regulators are looking to enable services such as mobile broadband and White Space to operate alongside broadcast TV. Dr Antony Rix from TTP’s Wireless group commented that, “if TV spectrum in 700MHz is to be released for LTE or other uses, it is critical that TV receivers operating close to these frequencies continue to be able to operate with a very high quality of service.”
TTP’s research will assess the potential for TV receiver performance, specifically adjacent channel selectivity, to be increased. Lewis Davies, who is leading the project at TTP, highlights that, “although the performance of best-in-class silicon tuners now br...

9 September 2013: Engineers at The Technology Partnership (TTP) have discovered a way to break through the Faraday Cage that prevents the entry or escape of an electromagnetic field through a metallic enclosure. While the Faraday Cage effect does have useful applications from preventing leakage from microwave ovens to lightning strike protection and screening data cables, TTP’s new patent-pending Fluxor technology will have major benefits for power and data transfer through metal shielding. TTP is already using the technology for monitoring fluid levels in steel pipes, taking readings from medical implants and measuring data from inside high-performance F1 engines.
TTP’s Fluxor method creates a ‘window’ for electromagnetic transmission of power and data by applying a strong DC magnetic field, which lines up the magnetic dipoles in the material to ‘saturate’ a small area of the metal screen. This reduces the permeability and increases penetration to make it possible to transfer elec...
TTP beats the Faraday Cage with Fluxor
TTP has today unveiled its ground breaking Vista 3D, which is the first print head technology that can print with more than one material.
