they do not plan to make their own factories
30 Aug 2013
Sensitronics is one of several companies making force sensing resistors. These sensors can be used for such applications as computer input devices, musical instruments, interactive toys, robotics fingertips, automotive, sports, or medical applications. Sensitronics is based on a licensing model. The company transfers the knowledge to licensed factories around the world where the sensors are produced. Sensitronics have recently designed new variants of their force sensors to better target specific applications.

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.
