1 February 2024: The Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) proudly announces a groundbreaking achievement in medical technology.  Dr. Attaphongse Taparugssanagorn, Associate Professor in the Department of Information and Communications Technologies, and Dr. Juthatip Wisanmongkol, a former doctoral student in Telecommunications at AIT, now a researcher at the Location and Automatic Identification System Research Team, National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), Thailand played a pivotal role in achieving this milestone. The research, a joint venture with the University of Oulu, Finland, is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant and the Academy of Finland 6G Flagship.

This pioneering work in UWB Wireless Capsule Endoscope Localization involves utilizing a small, ingestible capsule with a camera to conduct precise examinations of the stomach and intestines. The core of our advancement lies in the Hybrid One-Shot Learning and Trilateration Method, driven by the capabilities of Dassault Simulia CST Studio Suite for heightened accuracy.

Meet Laura, our meticulously crafted realistic model, tailored to overcome limitations and provide comprehensive evaluations for capsule endoscopy. Explore the intricate details of our simulations, illustrating how antennas interact within the small intestine.

The model has shown better performance over the currently available traditional techniques under different conditions when tested rigorously.  Results underscore the method’s exceptional accuracy in varying anatomical conditions, highlighting its adaptability. Beyond technological prowess, the approach is dedicated to advancing precision in understanding gastrointestinal health.

This hybrid methodology represents a significant leap forward, elevating the accuracy of wireless capsule endoscope localization in diverse stomach environments. Congratulations to Dr. Attaphongse Taparugssanagorn, Dr. Juthatip Wisanmongkol, and their team for their research achievement in medical technology.
