Electronic devices: modeling and characterization


Advancements in technology require novel interfaces between humans and machines. Integrating the soft tissues of the human body with the rigid components of machinery is crucial. Tactile or smart sensors, inspired by human skin, can detect external stimuli like deformations, temperature, moisture, and light. These sensors have various applications in wearables, soft robotics, prosthetics, and e-skin. However, mimicking haptic sensation remains a challenging endeavor, especially in biomedicine. In this field, 3D printing technology represents a convenient tool to produce sensors with complex shapes that could improve their stimuli sensitivity and their adaptability to the irregular surfaces of living beings.
Therefore, the development and the characterization of a 3D printable, flexible and ideally eco-friendly, multifunctional sensor is the main challenge of this project. Additionally, investigating portable power sources and innovative active transduction methods is an intriguing topic in order to avoid the usage of cumbersome batteries that limit sensors applicability in daily life.
