    The Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) represent a growing wave of change, in turn posing several new challenges to design engineers of the world's smart products and devices. Devices are getting more compact, they need to have a longer life, they need to respond appropriately to change in their environment, and they need to be affordable. Companies that invest in ways to embed sensing technology today will be the leaders in this monumental technological shift.

    Any touch can tell a story, and FlexiForce sensors can translate changes in a product or device's tactile environment into actionable responses.

    This session will explain the technology behind FlexiForce sensors and the features that make them the ideal embedded force sensing option for optimization in smart, connected devices. This will be supported with application examples from various markets including medical devices, health & safety devices, industrial controls, supply chain tools, and more.
