2007 NSTI Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show - Nanotech 2007 - 10th Annual

Collaborative Smart Objects and Augmented Materials

smart objects, augmented materials

Augmented Materials incorporate a set of processes designed to ‘infuse’ everyday materials with the ability to describe and even understand their own status through an embedded sensing, processing and communications infrastructure. Such materials are intended to enable the fabrication of networkable smart objects and embedded systems in a manner that scales effectively. A particular aspect of this new research area is the commonality that exists with research, both fundamental and applied, in the area of wireless sensor networking. This talk will discuss current research in augmented materials, including its complementarity to numerous exciting areas of innovation. It will describe routes to fabrication and the nature of the sensing and processing elements that are required. It will also investigate the systems architecture needed to resolve an effective representation for an augmented material and the approaches being taken to apply this research practically.
