Bebop Sensors said it has bagged the 2015 Frost & Sullivan North American Technology Innovation Award for its fabric sensor technology.

“Frost & Sullivan presented Bebop Sensors with the prestigious award because Bebop Sensors provides the ideal solution for today’s flexible fabric sensors industry,” Bebop said in a press release.

Embedded fabric sensors are an emerging field with great potential in various industries, such as wearables, sports, healthcare, automotive, and manufacturing.

Sumit Kumar Pal, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan, said, “OEMs find it challenging to develop or procure smart fabric sensors that are multi-functional, reliable, and low-priced.”

“Luckily for them, Bebop Sensor’s innovative smart fabric sensor technology meets these requirements,” Pal added.

“Because of its strong overall performance, Bebop Sensors is recognised with Frost & Sullivan’s 2015 Technology Innovation Award in Smart Fabric Sensors,” he informed.

Frost & Sullivan’s Technology Innovation Awards are presented each year to companies that have identified emerging trends before they became the standard in the marketplace.

Alongside, these companies have also created advanced technologies that will catalyse and transform industries in the near future.

Bebop CEO Keith McMillen said, “We are very pleased to be recognised by Frost & Sullivan for our advanced position in the emerging smart fabric sensor market.”

“Turning concepts into shipping product is the undoing for many startups and we have so many years of experience in providing solutions and feel this advantage will be seen in every sensor we make,” he too added.

BeBop Sensors designs and manufactures custom smart fabric solutions for OEMs and since launching in 2014, BeBop has installed 14 new sensors for OEM solutions in numerous fields.

Bebop Sensors uses a proprietary Monolithic Fabric Sensor Technology that integrates all of the sensors, traces and electronics into a single piece of fabric.

This approach affords greater sensitivity, resolution, range of deployment and fantastic robustness with diminutive size.

Implemented differently than other wearables that measure physiology like EKG and EMG, Bebop measures physicality.

BeBop technology senses and displays pressure, XY location, bend, motion, rotation, angle, and torsion.

Bebop’s sensor technology is based on smart fabric technology that has been under development for six years. (AR)
