New Materials Push the Embedded Tech Envelope

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Research in materials science and embedded sensors have led to advances like rubber-bound metal nano blobs to increase conductivity and machines that can “feel.”

Researchers have been finding new ways to embed sensors and other value-added devices into what some refer to as “smart materials.” While the definition can be debated, material properties and sensors are working hand-in-hand, opening doors to new applications that could change how engineers test and design parts.
