Peratech's force sensors are based on Quantum Tunnelling Composite (QTC®) technology and bring a new dimension to tactile controls. QTC sensors make touch buttons, panels and displays far easier to use and can be used above, below or around rigid or flexible displays, or under a variety of materials. The QTC touch experience is intuitive, consistent and reliable, whatever the environment, even when using gloved fingers or in the presence of moisture.
Peratech's award-winning, thin and flexible QTC sensors come in single-point, 3D single-touch, and 3D multi-touch versions. Peratech Holdco Ltd. is a privately held company based in Richmond, North Yorkshire, UK.

Printed sensors: an overview

There is an increasingly greater need for a wide choice of sensors to make objects smarter, safer and more responsive. Printing is the natural way to process wet inks and pastes, and it is therefore no surprise that printing has been used to make sensors for years. But there are new materials appearing, taking advantage of the progress that have been enabled by printed electronics. The article gives an overview of what is currently happening in the field of printed sensors. In particular, we will overview main trends in commercialising printed glucose sensors, force and pressure sensors, image and light sensors, gas sensors and temperature sensors. We will highlight key companies commercialising each printed sensor type.
