Flexible sensors: an expanding market

Guillaume Chansin, IDTechEx

Large investments have been made to enable flexible, thin sensors rather than rigid sensors. $75 million was recently awarded by the US Department of Defense to establish a new Manufacturing Innovation Institute (MII) for flexible hybrid electronics in San Jose, California. Under the acronym FHE MII, this new
