Professor Park Jae-young's team (Department of Electronic Engineering) has successfully developed a flexible smart glove that can simultaneously detect and monitor various bio-signals of the human body, including ECG, temperature, humidity, and pressure stimuli in real-time. The team creatively designed the smart glove so that external deformation applied from multiple directions does not affect the performance of the sensors integrated in the smart glove and simplified the sensor structure design and process technology based on graphene (Laser-engraved Graphene (LEG) electrodes using CO2 laser engraving technology to test the possibility of mass production and commercialization.
