This past February students competed and showcased product breakthroughs at the FLEX conference in Monterey, California. The competition focuses on the Electronics & Electrical Goods Printing & Publishing industries at a conference centered on the collaboration between industry professionals and academia members who come together to share ideas about flexible electronics and sensors.
North Carolina State University student Talha Agcayazi (center in photo), who majors in Electrical and Computer Engineering, placed second in the poster session of the 2018 FLEX conference. Agcayazi is part of the iBionicS lab which focuses his research efforts on making sensors and actuators for biological systems, and the group members were Jordan Tabor, Michael McKnight, Max Gordon, and Corey White, advised by Helen Huang, Tushar Ghosh, and Alper Bozkurt.
The poster for the 2018 FLEX conference was titled: Multi-Modal Array Sensing with Smart Textiles. The work included results from a textile sensor that could sense wetness, force and biopotential signals in an array fashion. Agcayazi and his group want to utilize this sensor to measure the interface quality for prosthetic limbs. This research group is a collaboration between the Electrical Engineering, College of Textiles and Biomedical Engineering departments. About his experience, Agcayazi said, “Flex conferences are very specialized yet very well attended. The mixture of people from the industry and academia is a big reason for the excitement. Most people that come are managers at growing companies so there is a lot for a student to learn. “
