Australia-based graphene and data analytics company, Imagine Intelligent Materials, has developed an integrated sensing solution that uses graphene coatings and edge-based signal processing devices to collect data from objects with large surface areas.
Proven over areas as large as 4,000 square meters, the system gathers data such as pressure, moisture, stress and temperature and is aimed at industrial and consumer applications in the IoT market.
Imagine’s executive chairman, Chris Gilbey said: “Imagine leverages the amazing electrical conductivity of graphene made in our Geelong factory and signals processing algorithms developed in our Finnish operation… (It delivers) a low-cost sensing solution for an entire surface that will scale easily and efficiently.”
The new technology is a development of the company’s first product, imgneX3 graphene coating used to detect leakages across the geotextiles that line minesite tailings dams. Read full story here.
The National Graphene Association is the main organization and body in the U.S. advocating and promoting the commercialization of graphene. NGA is focused on addressing critical issues such as policy and standards development that will result in effective integration of graphene and graphene-based materials globally. NGA brings together current and future graphene stakeholders — entrepreneurs, companies, researchers, developers and suppliers, investors, venture capitalists, and government agencies — to drive innovation, and to promote and facilitate the commercialization of graphene products and technologies.
