About this webinar

In this talk we will present the latest developments on smart sensing surfaces at TNO Holst Centre. Advancements in printed stretchable electronics are enabling large-area sensing devices that can measure vital signs. These devices can be seamlessly integrated on or close to surfaces that come regularly in contact with human beings. These include products as diverse as mattresses, shoes and car seats. Depending on the application needs, we make use of polyester foils, TPU or textile as the carrier substrate for these sensing surfaces. We will explain how our technological building blocks enable sensing surfaces for different application scenarios, while remaining “hidden” and being “non-intrusive”.

Meet the speaker

Dr. Edsger Smits, Program Manager – Printed Sensors

Edsger Smits received his PhD from the University of Groningen in the field of organic electronics. In 2009, he joined TNO Holst Centre to work on oxide based electronics and the development of flexible sensors. Currently he is the program manager responsible for the printed sensors activities. Topics of interests include laser processing, hybrid integration, printed and stretchable electronics.
