The Smart Labels That Will Power The Internet Of Things

When people think of IoT technology they usually think of silicon based sensors made by semiconductor companies.

These types of sensors can be found tracking data on airplane engines, wind turbines, medical devices, and many more internet connected devices. The problem with silicon based sensors is that they are not feasible for cost sensitive items or items in small or bendable packaging where embedding sensors just won’t work. To solve this problem, a company called ThinFilm has created printed electronics. ThinFilm creates sensor technology that can be printed on smart labels for a fraction of the cost of silicon sensors and can be attached to a variety of packages that previously had no way of being tracked in real time.
