A small shot 💉can make a big difference.
We believe that getting #vaccinated is one of the most important steps in putting an end to this pandemic. And it’s up to all of us to make it happen. Protecting yourself means protecting those around you too.
New PhD in Town. @DanielLucani we made it ...
Several papers on @TactileInternet CeTI at #europeanwirless in Verona, Italy. Here body area networks using 60 GHz from TP4. Very nice. @tudresden_de
