Wearables and medical devices, logistics and infrastructure monitoring, and soft robotics for advanced prosthetics and augmented warfighter performance stand to be revolutionized by Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE).

Success, however, depends on innovative power sources or power management schemes that meet the challenging flexible, stretchable, unobtrusive form factors and such varied use cases as a 12-hour wearable monitor for an assembly line worker, to a multi-year unattended infrastructure sensor in an austere environment enabled by FHE.

This workshop will also provide an opportunity to the members of the FHE ecosystem to lay the foundation for roadmapping as well as potential collaborative project efforts to meet the power challenges of current and future FHE systems.

Bringing Products to Market

Proven or rapidly maturing solutions are required to ensure that energy harvesting, energy storage, and power management solutions are efficient, cost-competitive, adaptable to FHE systems, and do not introduce additional risk.

Get Empowered

Workshop sessions will:

  • Identify FHE power requirements based on input from OEMs, military users, and electronics manufacturers.
  • Feature approaches for energy harvesting, energy storage, and high-efficiency electronics technology to deliver near-term power capabilities needs.

Who Should Attend

  • Wearable & IoT Device Developers
  • Designers
  • Users Interested in State-of-the-Art and Commercially-relevant Flexible Power Technology
  • Flexible Power & Low-power Sensor Technology Innovators who are interested in connecting with potential government customers and OEMs
