Frost & Sullivan AcknowledgesFrost & Sullivan Acknowledges Nanomade's Unique Technology that Combines Multipoint Touch and Force Sensing on a Fully Flexible Substrate PR Newswire LONDON, Dec. 17, 2013 - Nanomade's technology is finding application beyond the consumer electronics industry, in wearable devices, e-health and automotive markets Based on its recent analysis of touch technology for flexible electronics market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Nanomade Concept SAS with the 2013 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation Leadership. Nanomade's novel technology demonstrates multipoint touch that is characterised by force sensing and bend sensing on a flexible substrate that utilises just a single fully transparent sensor. This technology has substantial short-term potential in niche market segments, such as smart watches, curved dashboard screens for the automotive industry, but in the longer term, Nanomade plans to commercialise it in the mass consumer electronics segment on flexible displays. Nanomade's ability to convert a flexible substrate into a touch- and force- sensitive surface stems from the differentiating nanoparticle layer. The tactile solution relies on a network of printed nanoparticle-based resistive strain gauges; when networked, these strain gauges form a highly sensitive pressure sensor that can be laminated directly onto a flexible substrate.
