Cover Story (view full-size image): Conformable sensors enable the fabrication of flexible systems and their seamless integration onto irregular-shaped soft surfaces. By mimicking the flexible nature of sensory receptors in living organisms, these devices aim to open the path towards truly imperceptible systems, such as smart textiles and artificial skins, for the development of context-aware systems. To achieve this, materials and structures for innovative flexible sensors, as well as their integration into complex systems, continue to be in the research spotlight. Here, the current state of flexible sensor technologies is outlined. Special emphasis is given to the materials and structures used to realize strain, temperature, chemical, light, and electropotential sensors. Furthermore, the simulation, conditioning, and application of these sensors is discussed. View this paper
