“Our new measuring method is much more precise.”

I am one of Switzerland’s most experienced experts in the measurement of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation.

When our new method of measuring average values received negative media coverage, I was very hurt. The media statements are inaccurate: we are not manipulating anything – this is very important to me. The current method involves looking for a maximum value by hand. This is difficult to find and often difficult to replicate. The new method uses a robot. The robot measures around 80 points in the area to calculate the average value. This gives a more realistic representation, has a very good repetition rate and complies with international standards. I like figuring things out; I get to the bottom of things and give a lot of thought to possible implications. The Swiss author Max Frisch is a kindred spirit, and like me, he was an engineer. However, I’m also drawn to opposites, because they can spark new inspiration.
