Feasibility Study: IN TEMPO - INnovative chipless TEMperature sensor and POsitioning for InviSense moisture sensor
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||November 2018 - February 2019|
|Venture||The strategic innovation programme Electronic Components and Systems:|
|Call||Electronic Components and Systems. Research and innovation feasibility studies 2018.|
Purpose and goal
The aim of this feasibility study was to investigate the possibility of adding new wireless passive chipless technology to the InviSense moisture sensor in order to enable the read-out of the moisture sensor temperature. Furthermore, it investigated possible methods in order to time-efficiently record the moisture sensor position during installation and locate it during building inspection. The successful implementation of a temperature sensor and positioning system will enhance the business position of InviSense and is potentially of large benefit to the building industry.
Expected results and effects
A successful feasibility study was performed by the partners. Several possible solutions were identified for integrating passive wireless chipless temperature sensors into the InviSense moisture sensor as well as solutions for sensor positioning and location. Although there exist challenges, several of these potential solutions are compatible for implementation using printed electronics technology. The findings of the study will be used as the basis for a complete Smarter Electronic Systems research and development project to design and test proof-of-concept prototypes.
Planned approach and implementation
The feasibility study was successfully coordinated by InviSense. InviSense and RISE collaborated to provide the findings of the feasibility study in a final report. The project was completed in accordance with the project time and budget plan. The successful outcome of the study is to be used as the basis for an application to the Smarter Electronic Systems in Sweden program for a complete research and development project.
