Siemens has been selected by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council (SOSBC) to provide a new hosted traffic management service operating real-time Urban Traffic Control (UTC) including SCOOT adaptive control. The new seven year contract will see the migration of the current system to a new hosted Stratos solution to control traffic signal equipment across the town at 50 junctions and pedestrian crossings.
The University of Cambridge has been awarded £25 million in funding by the Medical Research Council (MRC) to invest in a range of revolutionary technologies for experimental medicine. This enables a major investment in innovative neuroimaging technologies to identify the causes of dementia plus speed up diagnosis and treatment. This includes ultra-high power MR imaging technology such as the MAGNETOMTM 7T imaging system from Siemens Healthcare. Designed to identify small changes in the structure, function and chemistry of the brain even before dementia starts, the technology will help to ensure the university remains one of the world leaders in clinical and cognitive neuroscience research. e
A new two-year traffic monitoring partnership between Siemens and OptaSense, a QinetiQ company, has been agreed to further explore the performance and potential commercial deployment of OptaSense Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), a fully networked traffic monitoring solution for the UK traffic industry.
Royal Stoke University Hospital, part of the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, is continuing to boost care provision as patient activity increases and it strives to become a centre of excellence. After undertaking a Siemens Efficiency Project in 2012, the hospital concluded it required a new CT system in the Imaging Department to help enhance capacity, and chose the SOMATOM® Definition AS+ from Siemens Healthcare.
Siemens has won the contract to provide the traffic signal control system for Suzhou Industrial Park’s Administrative Committee (SIPAC) ITS Phase II Project in China. Under the contract, the company will supply 110 ST950 traffic controllers, designed and manufactured by Siemens in the UK and a UTC/SCOOT traffic management system. Installation supervision, commissioning and integration services will also be provided.
The Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI), part of The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, is upgrading its CT capabilities with state-of-the-art technology from Siemens Healthcare. The SOMATOM® Force will allow the Hospital’s patients to be imaged quickly and easily at the lowest achievable dose. It will also allow patients to be administered with a lower quantity of contrast agent which results in a safer procedure. Along with a new CT system, the hospital is also installing an Artis zee™ Multi-Purpose (MP) from Siemens Healthcare which will be used for general fluoroscopy procedures.
