A fighter jet and your health, radar can track bothAny kind of sensing, human or not, unveils similarities. Ice and metal may both feel cold. The sun and an apple may both appear to be red. For Francesco Fioranelli, specialised in using radar technology for the classification of objects, there is little difference between a fighter jet manoeuvring at tens of kilometres distance, or an elderly person staggering through a room.

But what if this difference was eliminated? Thomas Saulou at TU Delft is working on software that can make this possible.

The new field of research called Photovoltatronics is bringing this future closer.
