InnovationLab shows automotive printed electronics at CES 2022
InnovationLab (Heidelberg, Germany), the expert in printed electronics "from lab to fab", will be attending CES in Las Vegas from 5-8 January. InnovationLab will be showing its portfolio of printed and organic electronics at Booth 51139, with a focus on sensors in automotive applications.
At CES, InnovationLab will have two automotive demos at its booth. Firstly, visitors can see a car seat developed with RECARO Automotive GmbH, showing how pressure sensor foils can detect an occupant. This information can then be used by the car for driver assistance and safety systems, such as seat-belt reminders, and airbag de-activation if a child seat is detected.
The second demo will show an innovative battery monitoring solution. Printed sensor foils are ultra-thin, enabling them to fit between individual battery cells, and thus gather detailed pressure and temperature data. This cell-level information delivers valuable insights into battery state of health and performance, helping R&D teams to improve their battery designs – including extending range for electric vehicles.
"Printed sensors have a wide range of automotive applications, including safety, comfort and adding new functions for drivers,” said Luat Nguyen, managing director at InnovationLab. "Our light, flexible sensors save weight and space in vehicles, and InnovationLab provides support from consulting through to volume production."
At CES, InnovationLab will also be demonstrating multiple other applications for its printed electronics sensors, including OccluSense by Bausch (an e-health product), as well as examples of smart textiles that include sensors. It will also show demos of printed sensors for the retail and logistics industries, including a smart carpet for social distancing in stores.
