Giving a flexible edge to the IoT

How flexible sensors will revolutionize electronics as we know them.


As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to revolutionize our daily lives, the demand for smaller, smarter, and more diverse flexible technology has never been greater. Increasingly complex demands have driven the development of smart sensors to monitor everything from velocity and proximity to pressure, humidity, and more. Future devices will need to interact with the ambient environment by performing intelligent activities such as fingerprint, vein, and odor recognition, with sensors so small and flexible that they can be integrated into almost anything.

Such technology could enable clothing that automatically deodorizes you, food packaging that alerts you to contents past their best, or bandages that can detect early-stage infections, but these activities require embedded and customized processing hardware built on a flexible substrate such as plastics. A new project could make these devices a reality sooner than you think.
