University of Sydney scientists have achieved a technology breakthrough with potentially life-saving applications—all using an improved version of radar.

Traditionally, is associated with airport control towers or military fighter jets, but a new, highly sensitive radar developed at the University of Sydney takes this technology into the human range.

Called advanced photonic radar, the ultra-high-resolution device is so sensitive it can detect an object’s location, speed, and/or angle in millimeters as opposed to meters. This could enable usage in hospitals to monitor people’s vital signs such as breathing and heart rate.
