In the 1st phase on Next-generation printed electronics materials and processes fundamental technology development” (2011 – 2016), high-definition printing on flexible substrates using pressure sensors etc. was achieved. In the second phase (2016 – 2018), this technology will be customized, leading to printing without photolithography through Thin film transistor liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCD) of any kind of information retrieved by local sensing in a “trillion sensor universe” and communicated through the internet.”
