Cross Talks #9 – Soft4Sense: Smart Surfaces for Reliable Tooling Integration

Illustration of the Cross Talks podcast. It reads

Cross Talks is a podcast series by the UT Austin Portugal Program that will walk you through the wonders of science-business collaboration. Monthly, we will be exploring emerging topics in the areas of Advanced Computing, Medical Physics, Nanotechnologies and Space-Earth Interactions as we delve into the Program’s ground-breaking industry-driven research projects, selected through the 2019 Strategic Research Project (SRP) Call.

In our ninth episode, we talked with Bruno Martins, Carlos Patacas (Researchers at Instituto Pedro Nunes) and Rui Huang (Professor at the University of Texas at Austin’s Cockrell School of Engineering) about their project Soft4Sense. The three researchers explain how they are creating smart surfaces to monitor thin film layers deposition and become part of the Industry 4.0.

Presented by Adriana Costa and produced by Andreia Passos (UT Austin Portugal Executive Director) and Adriana Costa (UT Austin Portugal Communication Team – PT Office).
