Proceedings - AMA Conferences 2017
This contribution gives an overview on our recent work on printed embedded transducers. It is focused on the description of appropriate technologies as well as technological considerations for the integration of sensors and actuators into the coating of sheet metal. In particular, the integration of capacitive large area sensors, piezo- and pyroelectric layers and strain gauges is discussed. The devised concept has the potential to introduce additional functionality (e.g., in terms of sensors) to a variety of products without the need of significant changes to their existing implementation.
