How to keep Cameras, RADAR & LiDAR Sensors free of Snow & Ice by means of Printed Electronics

Since advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and other cutting-edge self-driving innovations hit the automotive market, reliable LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging) systems are crucial in the development of advanced self-driving vehicles. One significant challenge in this relation, is to guarantee clear visibility of those systems even in the harshest environmental conditions. For the sensor cover, especially the accretion of snow and ice as well as fogging is a significant issue that needs to be solved.
To ensure visibility during winter time, the RADAR and LiDAR sensor covers are currently equipped with wire based heating solutions. This state of the art solution is coming with some technological challenges during the manufacturing process, that is causing significant scrap rates. The homogeneity of the sensor cover temperature is often inadequate and overheating or even burning issues have been detected.
This presentation focuses on sensor cover heaters by means of printed electronics. Besides the heating functionality, also ice and temperature sensors are embedded in the heating solution, allowing for a heating- on-demand functionality that is energy efficient and provides a significant safety advantage.

Flexible Electronics for HealthTech

The HealthTech market is a rapidly expanding arena with a wide range of new applications and technologies being developed. From personal diagnostics to point-of-care treatments, a key objective of the design of new HealthTech products is their adoption and use by patients which does not always meet the aims of product manufacturers. One of the key factors in user adoption is the ease of use of products and this is strongly influenced by their form factor. Flexible electronics provides a new paradigm for electronic product design which can be optimally exploited in HealthTech products. Unobtrusive wearables, smart garments and smart patches are starting to gain traction in the market place as the new technologies behind them are adopted and become mainstream. This presentation will discuss the flexible electronics technologies which can be used for HealthTech products and provide real world examples of devices which are helping to improve the health outcomes for patients.

Room temperature bonding of electronics in wearables and flexible applications with Anisotropic Conductive Adhesive films.

Anisotropic Conductive Adhesive films for room temperature, low pressure bonding will shortly be available for commercial use. What is the performance of these films, and how can they add freedom and value in designing and manufacturing new products in the area of wearables, flexible, and hybrid electronics?
An update on the availability and road-map for this product range will be presented, as well as application examples and performance data. Process savings will be discussed, related to the fact this bonding technique does not require heat nor additional pressure, and investments related to mounting equipment is moderate.

Recent years development of wearables evolves at the edge of the textile - and electronics industry with new demands for the supply chain. Printed electronics is a promising technology that bridges the gap between manufacturing cost, requests for advance vital sign monitoring and washability of most clothing. Endorsement of industry standards and technology capacities goes hand in hand to meet the demand for next generation wearables. In this talk, DTI’s speakers will present an outlook for printed electronics in this segment and demonstrate why e-textiles soon will play a significant role in healthcare, sport, and personal protective equipment.

Transparent and conductive films based on nanocellulose

Nanocelluloses have been subject to a recent interest in many fields. Nanocelluloses and especially cellulose microfibrils (MFC) are renewable and bio-degradable material having exceptional properties. The use of MFC as stabilizing agent offers a green way to replace petro-chemical surfactants usually needed to stabilize inorganic particles. The high aspect ratio of MFC allows it to form transparent hydrogel and films once dried.
Silver nanowires are high aspect ratio silver particles which have been used to achieve transparent and conductive layers.
Encres Dubuit - Poly-Ink has used these innovative materials to develop very stable conductive inks based on silver nanowires and MFC. These inks are suitable for screen-printing and coating processes. Transparent conductive films have been produced with high opto-electrical properties without any sintering. The obtained films showed an increase adhesion to substrate and resistance to oxidation thanks to the use of MFC.
These transparent conductive electrodes can then be integrated in opto-electronic devices such as membrane switches, touchpads, displays or solar cells.

Soft Wearable Bioelectronics for Human Healthcare and Human-Machine Interfaces

In this talk, Dr. Yeo will discuss the fundamental study in soft materials, flexible mechanics, nanomanufacturing, machine learning, and system packaging to develop nanomembrane-based intelligent soft wearable biosensors and bioelectronics. He will also talk about how fundamental science and knowledge can be applied to create various types of wearable soft sensors, circuits, and integrated bioelectronics. Afterward, he will share application examples of the wearable soft system as a portable health monitoring device, disease diagnostic device, therapeutic system, and human-machine interface system. Details of a device design, manufacturing, optimization, signal processing, and classification will be shared at high levels.
