The ThinFilm Electronic Temperature Sensor Monitors Products

Created as a way to help brands and retailers keep products in the ideal climate, the ThinFilm Electronic Temperature Sensor is intended to be placed on a label and send a notification if a set temperature is surpassed.

Prepackaged foods and other products with a predetermined shelf life require an optimal environment in order to be kept fresh when in storage. As such, the development of the ThinFilm Electronic Temperature Sensor signifies a continued need for smart integration through the entire cycle of products from development, to consumer.

The temperature-sensing label also holds promise for when the product is delivered to the consumer; if certain environmental conditions must be met to ensure purity, the label could connect to user smartphones and send notifications.
