    Viral Load Sensing: Breakthrough Technology for a Healthier Future

    Viral Load Sensing: Breakthrough Technology for a Healthier Future

    Join us this week as we discuss the exiting new technology of viral load sensing! Host Phil Ruane talks to Kevin Walsh from Opteev, a Baltimore-based company focused on IoT technologies for air quality, about how viral load sensing works and how it can and will improve so many corners of our lives. Can viral load sensors detect COVID cases? What would that kind of information and knowledge do for our workplaces and communities? Come explore Opteev’s ViraWarn technology.

    The ViraWarn viral load sensing technology detects and recognizes harmful viruses present in a person’s body, sharing an automatic alert that this person may be sick. From the workplace, to large gatherings or small neighborhood shops, there are so many places where viral load sensing technology can help to ensure that you and the people around you are safe by reducing the risk of a virus’ further spread. How can you imagine using viral load sensing in your spaces and communities?

    Phil and Kevin discuss common virus traits, how a ViraWarn alert works, and future use cases and product features to help us see the power and potential of this exciting breakthrough tech. Come along and learn!

    Controlled Environment Agriculture: Combining science and IoT integration for the perfect harvest

    Controlled Environment Agriculture: Combining science and IoT integration for the perfect harvest

    Join host Phil Ruane and special guest Gretchen Schimelpfenig of the Resource Innovation Institute in an exploration of Controlled Environment Agriculture, otherwise known as CEA. Relying heavily on lighting technologies, air quality controls and more, CEA is an indoor agricultural method that provides the ability to precisely control a crop’s yield and production time, thus offering immense flexibility and benefit.

    As states like Virginia begin to introduce new legislation around the growth, possession, sale and consumption of marijuana, we are in a great position for considering the mechanisms and applications of systems like CEA. Controlled Environment Agriculture is just one viable way to grow marijuana, among other goods. As Controlled Environment Agriculture involves carefully controlled systems from air quality to lighting, our Environments team was eager to explore and learn about the process with Gretchen. Our conversation takes us from best practices and business savings to environmental implications.

    Come along- let’s see what Controlled Environment Agriculture is, how it works with IoT technologies, and what it can do for farming businesses and their crops.
