Plenary 8: Kevin Chen

Macroscale Flexible Sensor System [BPN698]

We explore the integration of a system of various wearable sensors designed for enhanced interaction with the surrounding environment. Sensors designed to detect a whole host of interactions such as touch and movement are explored and then integrated into an active matrix backplane of carbon nanotube transistors from which their outputs can be obtained. The whole system is fabricated upon a flexible substrate so that it can conform to the surface that it is attached to.
