Large Area Pressure Sensor System For Critical Injury Diagnosis
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
17:40 - 18:00
Utilizing printed sensors on a flexible substrate, a novel pressure sensor system has been created by HP1 Technologies (HP1T), a UK business which is working in collaboration with CPI. The large area and high force range printed pressure sensor system will be presented and the integration of this into helmets will be discussed. Sensor fabrication will be shown and results from testing analyzed. The system demonstrates the feasibility of creating multi-sensor arrays which can be used to provide diagnostic data for potential injury in a wide range of applications.
