The highly stretchable electronic material essentially forms an electronic skin capable of recognising the range of movement human joints normally make.
Flexible and waterproof sensors that could unlock new applications for wearable electronics have been developed by Korean scientists.
STEGO's KTO 111 and KTS 111 series thermostats are familiar to installers and mechanics working in the field of industrial automation.
The sensor can be 'printed' onto flexible material such as paper or plastic film, and is so sensitive that it can accurately detect a single flower petal.
Altronics has released the S0158 No Touch Infrared Proximity Switch, designed to be used in conjunction with automatic door systems for opening doors with a wave of the hand.
ST will develop manufacturing processes for Metalenz's meta-surface optics technology for next-generation smartphones, consumer devices and more.
The foam is able to better sense the proximity of human presence compared with other commonly used e-skin materials such as silicones.
By deploying the badge sensors to employees potentially working in close contact with others, Digi-Key Electronics has been able to better perform contact tracing procedures.
A novel type of thermometer has been designed to simply and quickly measure temperatures during quantum calculations with extremely high accuracy.
The ams AS7038RB and AS7038GB vital sign sensors and AS7030B vital sign sensor module are based on photoplethysmography (PPG) and electrocardiogram (ECG), two methods for heart rate monitoring (HRM) and heart rate variability (HRV).
Researchers have developed a soft tactile sensor with skin-comparable characteristics. A robotic gripper with the sensor mounted at the fingertip could accomplish challenging tasks.
Researchers found that as the rain intensity increased it became more difficult for the sensors to detect objects.
Printed/flexible sensors can measure a wide range of parameters and can be employed in emerging applications, including IIoT, wearables, automotive interiors and smart buildings.
