AI for smarter forest management
Down on the ground, it isn't possible to get a full understanding of the richness of resources in a given forest area or predict any potential risks to the health of plants and trees. Comprehensive, manual surveying and data collection of forested areas can take months, with considerable strain placed on budgets and manpower.

IDTechEx's Printed Electronics Europe 2013 Grows by Over 20%
Attendance at last week's Printed Electronics Europe 2013 event grew by over 20%. The highly successful conference and tradeshow, hosted by IDTechEx, covered the broad range of emerging materials and devices, including OLEDs, touch surfaces, TFTs, stretchable and textile electronics, energy generation and much more. Presentations, exhibitors and attendees covered the full supply chain from materials to their final application in verticals such as the media, consumer electronics, the internet of things and even vehicles.
Overtaking Barriers: Pushing emerging technologies forward
Two of the main challenges in the development and further adoption of flexible electronics have been the sensitivity to moisture and oxygen of active materials, leading to stringent requirements for permeation and the need to replace expensive, brittle ITO, the most popular choice as a transparent conductive layer.
Printed electronics invigorates old electronics
Most of the well-known objectives of printed electronics remain elusive because they are glamorous, Olympian dreams based on some very exciting demonstrations in laboratories.
Printed Electronics: What can we do better?
