Thin Film Electronics ASA has announced that it has successfully demonstrated the world’s first Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled printed smart label. The system integrates printed electronic labels with real-time temperature sensing and NFC to allow for seamless wireless data capture and exchange of information. The NFC-enabled temperature-sensing label represents the first in a potentially wide range of sensing products from Thinfilm. This highly versatile, multi-sensor platform offers many potential commercial applications such as sensing temperature, time, humidity, light, and blood, oxygen and glucose levels.
