Recent advances in the fields of nano-technology, bio-technology, ICT and sensor-technology enable incorporation of information to paper products which can interact with the user.
ROPAS develops a technological platform, defined as a collection of functional components which are electronically connected and are integrated on a fibre based substrate by printing techniques. The technological platform consists of an electronic circuit in which sensors, batteries and communication devices are integrated on paper by printing techniques.
The technologies to be developed function as the platform for creating various new products based on monitoring environmental changes like temperature, pH, bio/ chemical activity, etc over time and communication of the observation(s) to receiver and/or sender either by visual means or by wireless connection.
