Overall Objectives


           To design, develop, test and validate an innovative real-time alerting wireless network of passive flex-on-chip sensors based on onion–like carbon (OLC) manipulated via dielectrophoresis (DEP) able to signalize unexpected hazardous hydrogen leakage at the level of off-board (stationary) and on-board (mobile) applications.


Scientific Objectives


SO1 Modelling and simulation of the interdigitated microelectrodes array design for passive flex-on-chip sensor development;

SO2 Fabrication, characterization and calibration of hydrogen flex-on-chip passive sensor based on onion–like carbon (OLC) manipulated via dielectrophoresis (DEP);

SO3 Software and hardware design and development of wireless network for real-time data collection and alerting of potential hazardous hydrogen leakage;

SO4 Optimization of H2 passive flex-on-chip sensor, prototyping and calibration, integration, testing and validating the hydrogen wireless network;

SO5 Projects’ results exploitation and dissemination at international, European and national academic and industrial level.
