Wireless sensor networks - the next ten years

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) - self organising, self healing networks of small "nodes" - have huge potential across industrial, military and other many other sectors. While appreciable sales have now been established, major progress depends on standards and achieving twenty year life.

Wearable RFID sensors to detect airborne toxins

Wearable RFID sensors to detect airborne toxins

RFID sensors are commonly used to track a wide variety of items, from products in a supply chain to baggage at an airport. GE is developing sensors that combine RFID tracking with an acute gas sensing capability, which can detect the presence of potentially harmful chemical agents in the air. Because these sensors can be made at a size smaller than a penny, they can be part of a typical identification badge and serve as a pre-emptive or early warning sign for people regarding the presence of chemical agents in the air. Detecting chemical agents in this way could provide much more information about the relationship between a person's health and the environment in which a person lives.

Highlights from the 2010 Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference

Chris Giacoponello introduced NTERA's concept of "printegration", the possibility to integrate a display, a sensor and a battery by using successive printing steps. NTERA's technology is based on viologen inks that change colour upon accepting electrical charge. Without a need for a transparent conductor, they can be directly deposited on any opaque substrate (e.g. paper, PCB) with better reflectivity and lower cost (avoiding costly ITO).Company demonstrators include RF-powered displays (co-operation with poly-IC), solar powered ones (co-operation with Plextronics) and a device comprising a printed display & battery stack, demonstrated in June 2009.
