Peter Drage

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.

Transparent and conductive films based on nanocellulose

TechBlick-favicon_edited.png

Guillaume Krosnicki

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 electrode array for skin electro-physiology: New opportunities in sleep studies and rehabilitation

TechBlick-favicon_edited.png

Yael Hanein

Founder & CTO

Electroencephalography (EEG) and surface electromyography (sEMG) are notoriously cumbersome technologies. A typical setup may involve bulky electrodes, dangling wires, and a large amplifier unit. Adapting these technologies to numerous applications has been accordingly fairly limited. Thanks to the availability of printed electronics, and low-power electronics it is now possible to effectively simplify these techniques to form skin electrophysiology with unprecedented performances, eliminating the need to handle multiple electrodes, wires and amplification units. Specifically, in this presentation, I will focus on the advantages of a newly developed soft printed electrodes which we developed in recent years. The system builds on soft electrodes with wireless signal transmission allowing electrode-skin stability, and user convenience during prolonged use (hours). Deep learning and blind source separation methods can also be used to enhance system performances, in particular reducing variability between individuals and sessions.

The presentation will outline several important applications and how each can benefit from the convergence of electrophysiology and novel skin electrophysiology. In the field of sleep, we validated the system against PSG, the gold standard in medical sleep staging and demonstrated its ability to perform sleep staging at home and detection of REM sleep without atonia (RSWA). The system was further used in other applications such as high-resolution facial EMG, finger gesture recognition and in rehabilitation, demonstrating the ability to obtain stable electrophysiological data under natural recording conditions.
