The webinar will provide a “sneak preview” to the all-day Pre-Conference Symposium “Paper, Plastic and Fabric: New Platforms Enabling Commercialization Opportunities for Printed/Flexible/Stretchable and Functional Fabric Sensors and Sensor-Based Systems” taking place on Tuesday, June 25 during Sensors Expo & Conference 2019 in San Jose, California. The webinar topics will address some of the most critical aspects of the commercialization of the technology, including manufacturing, materials and functional integration to create final products that address high volume applications including wearables and IoT. In this session:

  • Roger Grace will present an introduction as to the compelling reasons for the adoption of these technologies and some of the most significant application opportunities.
  • Janos Veres, PARC, will address some of the main challenges in the integration of the various functionalities of printed/flexible sensors and associated electronics in the creation of robust high-volume and low-cost solutions.
  • Andy Behr, Panasonic, will address some of the critical material selection issues to insure maximum product reliability.
