•    Industry Feedback: applications pull

​9:15 am

Common technologies

Cakmak, Alam, Mohammadi and Hussain

  • Baselines for R2R Printed Electronics: one of the first projects is to print hundreds of antennas, RFID and capacitor structures. Their material and process can be changed as needed for similar volume and neck-to-neck comparison for rapid prototyping to mid-scale volume production

  • Common Platform Technology: integrated system solutions for sensing: networking/ communication, RF powering/capacitor storage•

  • Data analytics: reliable sensing in uncertain and harsh environment

  • Industry Feedback: partnership opportunities

9:45am -10:00am  Break

​10:00 am

NSF / AnalytixIN AI in Manufacturing update

Shakouri and Alam

  • AI Commons (privacy-preserving ML and data aggregation to improve manufacturing resiliency and competitiveness)

  • TinyML sensors (edge analytics for real-time productivity monitoring and anomaly detection)

  • IoT workshops for industry (low-cost open-source IoT solutions for SMEs)
