In the quest to develop the next smart device, machine, or application, the same technologies that design engineers use to validate their designs can become the very mechanisms that enable game-changing features. Smart sensing technologies, like thin, flexible force- and pressure-sensors, represent a core printed sensing category that function either as an R&D instrumentation tool, or as an embedded component.
Tekscan Product Manager Camilo Aladro (Pressure Mapping Division) and Application Engineer/FlexiForceTM Product Manager Edward Haidar (Embedded Sensing Division) explain how this broad-use sensing technology can both uncover insights in your design process and transition into an embedded application.
