The Internet of Things will enable constant connectivity in an unprecedented range of situations, from smart homes to environmental monitoring of dangerous chemicals. New technologies like self-driving cars will rely on smart connections and sensors like the graphene-based collision detection system on display at the Graphene Experience Zone, which combines visible and infrared light to avoid collisions even in fog. Graphene is also ideal for sensor technologies that enable mobile devices, such as touch screens and displays. Also on display at the Graphene Experience Zone are a full colour, graphene-based mechanical pixel system for low-power displays and e-ink, and a range of high performance touch and pressure sensors for interacting with mobile devices and smart objects.
