Speakers: Dr John Batchelor

This talk discusses how radio from its earliest beginnings has been used to avoid disaster as well as to fight and commit crime.
Starting from Marconi’s first radio shipping system in Kent, the talk will discuss the part radio played in the Titanic disaster, how the murderous Dr Crippen was apprehended and how modern prisons might be modified to prevent mobile phones being used to commit crimes.
The subject is brought up to date by discussing some of the latest wireless research at the University of Kent.
Dr John Batchelor is from the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, University of Kent
