BBC Technology - Fast Track

Professor Darwazeh on the BBC website

Professor Izzat Darwazeh, Head of the Communication and Information Systems Group and his Research Associate Dr Manoj Thakur and PhD student George Smart, featured in a recent BBC technology programme called Fast Track. Filming took place in the new UCL-Aeroflex Lab where Prof Darwazeh and his team tested a tablet device in both aeroplane and non-aeroplane mode to see whether such devices can affect flights. Using electronic devices during take-off and landing is currently banned on flights but recently a New York Times journalist has campaigned for the ban to be lifted.
