Sensors Based on Graphene Devices Incorporated into the Building Fabric

This article was written by Daphne Tomlinson, Independent Senior Research Associate at Memoori. As part of the Building Internet of Things (IoT) trend, sensors are being mounted everywhere - on ceilings, walls, desks or incorporated into lighting fixtures at a rapid rate. In view of their proliferation, a new graphene-based solution in which sensors are embedded in building panels and structural elements could have a positive impact on the building fabric. Graphene is made of a single layer of carbon atoms that are bonded together in a repeating pattern of hexagons. It is a 2 dimensional material with amazing characteristics, which have led to it being labelled as a “wonder material”. It is extremely strong and almost entirely transparent and also astonishingly conductive and flexible. A recent alliance demonstrates that graphene is close to reaching commercial scaleability in smart building applications. Versarien plc, the UK advanced materials engineering group, is collaborating with AXIA Materials Co., […]
