Glioblastoma is notoriously fatal as it accounts for the majority of brain tumors and is highly aggressive. The average survival time of patients with glioblastoma is 14-15 months from diagnosis. Glioblastoma spreads quickly and in an unpredictable manner, making it particularly challenging to treat with existing approaches including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and certain targeted therapies. New drugs could drive better patient outcomes. However, existing drug development methods in the lab are time-consuming and don’t show how a treatment will work in an individual patient’s body.

For the first time, ground robots was put on trial to patrol public area in Singapore
For the first time, ground robots will be put on trial to patrol and survey a public area with high foot traffic to augment the work of public officers in enhancing public health and safety.

This is a joint project involving five public agencies, namely HTX (Home Team Science and Technology Agency), National Environment Agency, Land Transport Authority, Singapore Food Agency, and Housing & Development Board.

For a three-week period, Xavier (the name of the HTX robot) will weave its way autonomously through the crowds in Toa Payoh Central.

Once Xavier detects any of the above, it will trigger real-time alerts to the command and control centre, and display the appropriate message (depending on the scenario) to educate the public and deter such behaviours. (More)
