What Do Sensors, Football Helmets, Electronics & 3D Printing Have in Common?

Reading time ( words)

Eric MacDonald, Youngstown State University, USA, will talk about 3D Printing of Multi-Functional Structures at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference on January 28. His presentation will review work in multi-process 3D printing for creating structures with consumer-specific wearable electronics, electromechanical actuation, electromagnetics, propulsion and embedded sensors in soft tooling and even in metal and ceramic structures.

Eric says: I am working with the US National Football League (NFL) to 3D print next-generation football helmets. We are working to tailor the dynamic mechanical response of football helmets with complex geometries, like spatially varying lattices. Embedding sensors into these 3D-printing-enhanced structures will be the next step to provide real-time data on potential injuries. Having the sensors directly inform the behavior of the mechanical structure will be the holy grail. Read more about his presentation

On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.

Beyond Scaling: An Electronics Resurgence Initiative

06/05/2017 | DARPA
The Department of Defense’s proposed FY 2018 budget includes a $75 million allocation for DARPA in support of a new, public-private “electronics resurgence” initiative. The initiative seeks to undergird a new era of electronics in which advances in performance will be catalyzed not just by continued component miniaturization but also by radically new microsystem materials, designs, and architectures.
