Abstract

The digital revolution is upon us and connected devices are ubiquitous as part of the digital transformation. Integrating both the hardware data collection and analytics layers of the IOT ecosystem across different domains (smart retail, hospitality, health & safety) can help enhance the ROI of the solution. Such devicification leads to customized and personalized solutions enabled by additive manufacturing processes like: 3D printing, printed electronics, consumer packaging, and flexible hybrid electronics. The emergence of 3D printed electronics for PCB manufacturing also presents unique opportunities for integrating flexible hybrids to realize complex designs. These manufacturing innovations create opportunities where the benefits of functional integration are realized and can potentially impact manufacturing processes, reducing assembly steps and fostering supply chain simplification. Materials and sensor developments have a large role to play in advancing this field.
