Player Tracking Thumbnail

We detail some research and development work Codethink conducted last year; building a low cost multi-camera sports tracking system. We specifically focus on camera space tracking on embedded platforms, as well as running through some of the background and state of the art of Computer Vision.

RAAPI Thumbnail

This blog post is about the Remote Asset API, describing its components and going into detail about the server-side implementation which has been worked on here at Codethink.

Safety Devroom Thumbnail

Codethink recently ran the Safety and Open Source devroom at FOSDEM 2021. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, this was entirely virtual. However, this did make the conference more accessible to those who would otherwise be unable to attend. 2021 was the first year that the safety devroom had been run, and hopefully, it will become a regular occurrence at FOSDEM in future years.

Beth White Interview Thumbnail

One of the innovative minds that contribute to the community and work with our client’s projects is Beth White, Project Manager at Codethink, for the last 4 years. She has led and planned projects for some of our prime clients by driving the community side.

Terraform Thumbnail

Terraform definitions are rarely defined in isolation without configurations for other tools such as Ansible, Puppet, Kubernetes. These definitions' close relationships often lead to changes in the configurations for multiple tools across various configuration languages.

Bloodlight Thumbnail

The Bloodlight project was designed to test for new health metrics in the blood by testing multiple LED wavelengths of light at high-frequency and accuracy. We hoped to process the signals to determine the most appropriate wavelengths for low-power sensing and find new potential data in the signals.

Women In Tech Thumbnail

As we celebrate International Women's Day, I thought I would reflect on the many inspirational women I have come across, in-person in everyday life, in articles or in history. My HR career has allowed me to see just how well women have steered their professional growth and how policies and procedures have evolved to complement changing and progressive environments.

Bloodlight Case Thumbnail

One of the more challenging aspects of prototyping research hardware has always been the construction of plastic enclosures/cases. This is an even more fundamental issue for wearable/medical prototypes - in our example the case plays a strong role in the PPG sensor's optical properties.

Safety Thumbnail

Applying functional safety practices to software-intensive systems can be very challenging, and established approaches have struggled to scale and adapt to the problem. But what is meant by the assertion that "Safety is a system property, not a component property" and how should this shape our understanding of safety when applied to software?

RISC-V Thumbnail

When something as exciting as a completely open CPU architecture comes along, it's hard to stop Codethink's engineers from getting involved. We've set up an internal research project with the goal of learning about RISC-V, and we have some interesting results already.
