Stage 1: Single Technology
If you look at your smartphone you can see that it is a beautiful mix of technologies working together in harmony. There are many technologies upon which your phone is built, from the screen and camera through to the processor and variety of wireless communication systems (e.g. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth). Each of those myriad technologies all have to work well and together – and you would not use a smartphone that did not have them all.
In this first Stage we look to develop a variety of individual technologies in parallel – hence its title “Stage 1: Singe Technology”. However, this is done with a clear vision of what the final combination of technologies will have to be if it is to be a success – on the market and treating patients.
