Onur ERGEN [1]


Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) lead a new era in remote health monitoring and preventive care, while making ZnO based strain sensor and nanogenerators a very attractive data collection tool. Here, we demonstrate flexible piezotronics strain sensor/nanogenerator, based on chemically modified graphene aerogels to monitor human hand/finger motions as well as gait asymmetries. The I-V characteristic of the sensor shows high sensitivity towards detection of human motion with a good gauge factor of as high as 95 has been demonstrated.
Yapay zeka (AI) ve makine öğrenimi (ML), uzaktan sağlık izleme ve önleyici bakımda yeni bir döneme öncülük ederken, ZnO tabanlı gerinim sensörünü ve nanojeneratörleri çok çekici bir veri toplama aracı haline getiriyor. Burada, insan eli / parmak hareketlerini ve yürüyüş asimetrilerini izlemek için kimyasal olarak modifiye edilmiş grafen aerojellere dayanan esnek piezotronik gerinim sensörü / nanojeneratör gösteriyoruz. Sensörün I-V özelliği, insan hareketinin algılanmasına karşı yüksek hassasiyet , 95 kadar, gösterge faktörü bulunmuştur.
