Integration on soft substrates
To investigate various methods for integration of sensing/electronic components, developed through research themes 8-11 on soft substrates. The focus will be on soldering techniques and stretchable connections to obtain tactile skin with reliable operation, while allowing normal working of sensors and other electronics embedded in the soft substrates. Where possible the tools developed for integration of planar electronics will be used.
Method for integrating/embedding sensors and electronics in soft materials as in skin.
BMW: to learn integration of skin concepts in cars
IMEC: to learn about integration on wearbles
KIT: to validate skin for rehabilitation
