Seminar Wearable Electronics
Electronics & Automation – Dinsdagmiddag 2 juni, Croesezaal
Integration of electronics into materials and objects that have not been functionalized with electronics before, open up extensive possibilities. By adding intelligence and/or operating power to materials in close skin contact like clothing, furniture or bandages the health of people can be monitored or even improved. Foil based electronics are interesting components to be integrated as they are thin, large area and cost effective available components. The design of the mechanical and electrical interconnection and encapsulation of all electronics contributed to the durability of the system. We have integrated (in)organic components into textiles and built wearable encapsulated products with foil based electronics for which examples will be shown in the presentation.
