Rapid Prototyping with Printed Electronics: Drone Design and Advanced Materials
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Conference Room G
14:20 - 14:40
Silicon Valley based DuPont Innovation Center and 219 Design, an interdisciplinary product development company, came together to rethink drone design through the use of DuPont's advanced material capabilities. The solution is nothing short of remarkable.
219 worked with DuPont to develop a custom-designed drone built with advanced technology and primarily out of DuPont materials that were carefully selected for their ability to improve flight and safety performance and durability. We also reduced the overall weight.
As DuPont's Global Innovation Leader, Russell works on cross-functional business teams, partnering with individuals, organizations, and institutions to bring technology and fresh thinking to solve problems and create new opportunities. Russell focuses on increasing DuPont's presence and visibility in the Silicon Valley ecosystem via startups, participation in accelerators, and partnering with universities and governmental entities. Russell is also an Executive Innovation Advisor to the City of San Jose, CA--the economic, cultural and political center of Silicon Valley. As an extension of DuPont's Core Value in Safety, Russell is leading San Jose's development of a Safe City. Creating the roadmap and implementation strategy using data and technology and partnering with the Police Department, Fire Departments, the Office of Emergency Management and other agencies. Russell will be presenting the DuPont Drone Project with 219 Design, demonstrating DuPont's rapid prototyping capabilities using key DuPont materials like Kapton™, Pyralux™, Hytrel™, Zytel™, and Heatel™.
DuPont Advanced Materials has 50 years of experience in the development, manufacture and sale of specialised inks for a wide variety of printed electronic applications in the display, photovoltaic, automotive, biomedical, telecommunication and consumer products markets.
DuPont Advanced Materials will be exhibiting its 2nd generation of stretchable/washable inks for wearables and the latest suite of formable inks for in-mould electronics applications. Enabling printed electronics beyond traditional substrates, DuPont will demonstrate a range of low temperature curing inks as well as new DuPont™ Kapton™ inks for high temperature operation. A new highly conductive nano-Ag ink-jet ink will also be presented, suitable for high resolution, high volume industrial digital printing.
