Global networking of devices, machines and sensors is not just a pipe dream, but has long since become reality thanks to the "Internet of Things" (IoT). The "Internet of Things" is about to revolutionise our daily lives. An important prerequisite for the functioning of the growing and increasingly differentiated IoT applications is a precisely tailored energy supply. Batteries must last a very long time and their performance has to meet the requirements of the respective use. At the "Embedded World" in Nuremberg from 25 to 27 February 2020, VARTA will show a comprehensive portfolio of battery solutions for the networked world in the Internet of Things in Hall 3A, Stand 717.
Printed electronics is revolutionising medicine. LOPEC, the international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry in Munich, Germany, will present new developments from this area from 24 to 26 March 2020. Read excerpts from a conversation with LOPEC plenary speaker John A. Rogers, professor at Northwestern University in the US state of Illinois, about monitoring systems and other flexible electronic devices that can be worn directly on the skin or implanted inside the body.
Flexible sensors to monitor your performance, motion and physical conditions, improve your training as well as prevent injuries. Integrated lighting for additional safety or self-heating jackets to increase your well-being. Organic and printed electronics stands for a revolutionary new type of electronics, which are thin, lightweight, flexible, robust and produced at low cost, from organic, polymeric or inorganic materials. The high degree of freedom of design requires a holistic approach in product design to enable this wide range of novel applications.
