This paper presents a flexible, printed and robust sensor platform
for the detection of various parameters: strain, flow speed, pressure,
conductivity, temperature and magnetic field. The sensors are based on
Laser-Induced Graphene fabricated by laser printing on Kapton substrate.
Multi-functionality is obtained by exploiting printing process combined
with the flexible nature of Kapton and the piezoresistivity of
Graphene. Sensor have been implemented for the detection of strain, flow
speeds, forces pressure, salinity and magnetic field. Their sensitivity
and dynamic range can be tailored via the substrate and laser printing
design. A robust and reliable operation was obtained during underwater
experiments in the Red Sea.
