Abhilash Iyer - IoT with Flexible Electronics

Session 14: FHE Applications II

IoT with Flexible Electronics
Wednesday, June 21, 2017 
2:15 PM - 2:35 PM

A full cycle Internet of Things (IoT) solution is a seamless integration of electronics, data infrastructure and analytics, which is designed such that a complete machine to machine communication is established avoiding any human intervention.  In this talk, we will demonstrate an IoT solution using flexible electronic platforms and discuss in detail about the flexible temperature & humidity sensor unit.

The flexible sensor unit consists of a semi flexible temperature and humidity sensor patch, ultra-thin flexible lithium polymer battery, the necessary firmware to communicate the sensor data to a cloud data services using Wi-Fi. This hybrid electronics platform was developed on a kapton polyimide substrate and the firmware of the electronics support ultra-low power consumption for extended life. 

This patch acts as an hybrid electronic platform on which we are integrating range of sensors, send the raw data to a secure private server and combine this with machine learning platforms to infer insights for different kind of applications like smart shipping & smart environment monitoring.
