  3. The Week In 5G: 6/15/2018 – 3GPP Approves Standalone 5G Specs, NYC Accelerates 5G Deployment, Australia Rethinks 5G Plans Involving Huawei
  4. Wireless System Can Power Devices Inside The Body

    MIT researchers, working with scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have developed a new way to power and communicate with devices implanted deep within the human body. Such devices could be used to deliver drugs, monitor conditions inside the body, or treat disease by stimulating the brain with electricity or light.

  5. New Indoor WLAN Positioning Method Invented By Lithuanian Scientists

    The group of scientists from Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania has invented the innovative method for indoor positioning of people and things using wireless network. It localises a human being or an object within an accuracy of 1 meter, it works in any device having a Wi-Fi function, and can be applied for numerous areas of human activity – from logistics to health care.
