Sensors Expo 2018: Flexible Sensors Take On Next-Gen Apps

 

  • It’s quite obvious that sensors are evolving to accommodate the myriad applications that require their assistance. Equally obvious, based on the burgeoning market for wearable electronics of every type and category, is the escalating need for sensors that can fit into, stretch over, adhere to, and conform to curved and other oddly shaped surfaces. It would not be far off to say that the market for sensors now is about one quarter for wearable, flexible, stretchable sensors of every type from temperature to position.
