Connected Devices

Connected Devices Graphic
Connected Devices are changing the way that communication, measuring, and connecting can be done with each other or with interfaces. Full and complete nanosystems that can be used in real-life applications are the target for this thematic area.

This includes but is not limited to sensors (quantum-, nano- and microsensors), MEMS/NEMS, flexible electronics, wearable devices, lab-on-chip, use of internet-of-things and artificial intelligence for sensors, human-machine interfaces, photonic-devices and other connected devices.
