Abstract: The goal of the work presented here is the development, integration and testing of an innovative technological approach to be the basis for a new product and service for markets associated with the “Health” vector. Our research focuses on a Physiological computing approach, where a polymeric flexible detection system, working as the sensing element is used as an input channel, and a computing system is responsible for the physiological signals synthesis. The proposed solution provides a simpler, lower cost and larger scale manufacturing production of polymer based sensors, along with an electronic interface and the software design. The sensing platform consists in a flexible PCB (Printed Circuit Boards) manufactured using conventional technology (defining the electrical connections and the capacitors dimensions) together with two flexible polymeric membranes (TPU) printed with conductive ink (Plexcore®) for definition of the electrodes. A Capacitance to Digital Converter (CDC) is used to measure the capacitance of the sensors, and a graphical interface in MATLAB allows real-time visualization of data. Current results performed on the pressure sensors indicate the feasibility of the approach. (More)
