Inkjet Printed Wireless Temperature and Humidity Sensors for Smart Bandage Application


Project Description

In this project, the student will first learn inkjet printing in the lab. Then the student will design temperature and humidity sensors. These will be electrical sensors, specifically resistive and capacitive sensors. These sensors will be printed on a wearable bandage to determine the temperature and humidity levels in the wound. The bandage will also have a wireless part which will send this data to the cell phone in a wireless fashion. The project involves design, fabrication and characterization so the student will go through the entire cycle of a research project.​​​​
