Brite Innovation Review Autumn 2022

  October 2022  
 

Well, innovation remains brisk and continues to drive change in everything we do. In this issue we have a fantastic line up of articles from our fellows, members and partners that cover such topics as, the ever-intriguing interrelationship of humans augmented by technology that could deliver a world in which dramatic increases in human performance and potential becomes commonplace; the growth in autonomous charging applications, whereby your electronic devices are charged without your intervention; to that of the importance of automated truck dispatching and the application of salt and a battery in smashing the limits of power storage.

We also hear from Germany’s Microelectronics Research Fab (Forschungsfabrik Mikroelektronik Deutschland - FMD) about their experience in bringing together 13 research institutes and their use of a common Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to deliver significant business advantages. We then consider how to significantly improve manufacturing consistency, quality, and efficiency by combining the DevOps approach with MES.

Additionally, we delve into the changing role of the Digital Battlefield within the shifting geopolitical context, and also examine what the future might look like for Directed Energy Weapons.

 
 

Furthermore, we investigate what Green Innovation means for Environmental, Social and Governance and highlight five ways companies can transform to a Social Purpose.

Plus, Birmingham City University shares their vision on how to form the right ecosystem to enable a generative innovation capability using STEAMhouse, a dedicated innovation hub.
