Robot Arms, Smart Wearables @ Innovation Day 2017

Wearables get more sophisticated every year. This year, you will be able to catch a whole host of smart wearable solutions at Innovation Day 2017. Bio-fluid monitoring systems, robotic arms, and smart mouth guards are just a few items you will be able to catch:

  • DuPont: Clothing, including a Formula 1 racing suit, featuring stretchable electronic inks and films that transform ordinary fabrics into active, connected, intelligent garments conveying biometric data, including heart rate, breathing rate, form awareness, and muscle tension.
  • Georgia Institute of Technology:  Sleek, invisible, flexible skin-like, skin-mounted sensors that enable wireless human-machine interface through electromyography—including a machine arm that mimics the actions of a human arm. Implications include worker safety in industrial settings, such as handling materials in unsafe environments, and warfighters, enabling them to remotely disarm improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise: Its Flexible Hybrid Electronics Process Design Kit (FHE-PDK) is the first comprehensive FHE design, modeling and verification kit for electrical and mechanical designers and flexible circuit samples using carbon-nanotubes (CNT). CNT has great potential for realizing penny-dollar RFID, asset tracking tag, and human monitoring patches.
  • Lockheed Martin: The Desert Hawk III unmanned aircraft drone system, together with the FHE components that LM is integrating into the next generation of the drone to enable significant improvements in performance and cost.
  • PARC (a Xerox company): A smart mouth guard that can non-invasively and continuously monitor health by detecting within saliva indicators of exhaustion, glucose levels, and organ distress, communicating these conditions in real time to a smartwatch, phone, or doctor.

The event will be held in San Jose on Sept. 21. 2017.
