Cambridge-based Fen Technology is launching a pop-up event featuring world-class experts in product development from leading international businesses, supported by CW (Cambridge Wireless).
The free event offers direct consultations with leading engineers from Microsoft IoT-Solutions, Bosch, Carnell Group, Avnet, Express Group and Ultra Electronics, and is designed for Cambridge businesses looking to develop a new IoT (‘Internet of Things’) product or next-generation wireless technology, applied to any industry sector.
Exhibition of IoT and wireless devices with live demonstrations
1-2-1 Consultation with world-leading product development engineers
Date: 27th November 2018
Time: 10am – 3pm
Venue: St Johns Innovation Centre, Cowley Road, Cambridge CB4 0WS
Room: Appleton Room and Cormack Room (adjacent rooms)
Engineers providing advice at the Product Development Surgery:
Fen Technology, Microsoft IoT-Solutions, Bosch, Carnell, Ultra Electronics, Avnet, Express Group.
Fen Technology is an electronics design consultancy that specialises in designing a diverse range of IoT hardware and software solutions. At the event, Fen Technology’s clients will be discussing their displayed IoT and wireless technology products – with some live demonstrations – providing practical insights into the product development process by openly discussing the development work carried out by Fen Technology’s experienced engineers.
The event will focus on End-to-End IoT, Wireless Communications, Instrumentation, Wearables, Automotive, Industrial and high-power electronics. Examples of IoT devices exhibited at the event include a robotic lawnmower, real-time responsive flood-detection sensors, a mobile critical care monitoring device and more.

Patrick Nicholson, Managing Director of Fen Technology says:
“For decades, our engineers have been quietly solving complex product challenges with cutting-edge electronics solutions at all stages of the product lifecycle. We have a huge wealth of experience and know how valuable it can be to talk through your electronics-based innovation challenges in a relaxed, informal environment.
“For the first time, we are bringing together our clients, suppliers and providing access to our most senior engineers to help demystify the design development process for Cambridge businesses that are looking to create or iterate their own IoT device solutions”.
“By taking such a transparent, practical and business-first approach we hope to attract interest from Cambridge and East Anglia’s diverse array of technologists and entrepreneurs operating in the IoT space or keen to develop ‘smart’ connected devices.”
Ciaran McAleer, Director and Co-founder of Fen Technology says:
“IoT-based projects represent a major share of the electronics development work carried out by Fen Technology, and is an area we rooted ourselves in at the business’s inception in 2002.
“Our clients come to us with, often, complex business challenges and research-based concepts of solutions they wish to test in development. We are passionate about applying our deep electronics specialism to produce highly differentiated, smart solutions, whether software or hardware, which are frequently sector-leading.”
Fen Technology was acquired by Inspiralia, a €21m product development consultancy headquartered in Madrid, Spain earlier this year. The deal bolstered the group’s technical product development offer, both in scope and depth. Fen Technology has huge ambitions in the UK and across Europe and is now increasing its profile, especially in the IoT space.
Examples of IoT-based devices to be exhibited at the event include:
- Bosch’s internet-connected Indego Robotic lawnmower system designed for the Smart Home market.
- Carnell Groups’ range of “Overheadsafe” hazard alert system, which provides a visual warning to road workers to keep them safe when in close proximity to overhead dangers such as power lines. This includes connected ‘base stations’ within traffic cones and connected high-viz jackets.
- Carnell Group will also exhibit its storm drain flood detection system, iDrain, designed to remotely monitor and protect UK road infrastructure. It relays real-time data to provide early warning of flood events on strategic road networks, enabling proactive maintenance.
- (Philips Healthcare company) RDT’s Tempus PRO vital signs medical monitor, which provides critical care monitoring in a light-weight mobile device. In a medical emergency, this provides first-responder level assessment of the patient’s vital signs and can securely relay this information in real-time to medical professionals anywhere in the world.
- Ultra Electronics will be showcasing examples of their electronics miniaturisation capabilities, which can enable significant reduction in the size of electronics-based products, in particular where product size is largely determined by the electronics content within.
