InnovationLab (Heidelberg, Germany), expert for printed and organic electronics from development to production, presents a novel sensor-equipped floor mat, which helps to control the distance between people in retail stores.
Heatstroke is a life-threatening condition that is becoming increasingly common worldwide because of global warming. In a new study, researchers from Tokai University, Japan, describe their latest development: a low-cost electronic skin-like sensor that can measure the pH (acidity) of the skin, allowing for early heatstroke detection. Because heatstroke is sometimes asymptomatic, this technology can help people beat the heat, and could also save lives worldwide.
Nano Dimensions Ltd., a leading additively manufactured electronics (AME) and printed electronics provider, and REHAU, a worldwide-leading polymer manufacturer, have succeeded in printing a 3D touch sensor. With the 3D electronic device, the premium polymer products from REHAU can be transformed into back-lit human-machine-interface surfaces. Thus, functionality and convenience are increased – all with a very sleek design. REHAU has established a dedicated technology platform called “Electronics into Polymers” with the mission to make their premium polymer products smarter and increase the value for its customers by seamlessly integrating electronics.
