Presentation Summary

  • As stated in the 12APR21 edition of The Economist, "the third industrial revolution" is underway in major part due to additive manufacturing processes
  • Advances in sensing materials and designs are being incorporated into mechanical and architectural designs
  • Powering of the embedded/encased sensors may be via a variety of harvesting techniques, uniquely designed to even be intrinsically safe
  • Communication to/from the sensors & structures is via wireless.
