Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, with the rapid development of flexible technology, its applications are becoming more and more widespread. The better flexibility, ductility and biocompatibility of flexible sensors compared to rigid sensors have the potential to have a significant impact on the wearable and agrifood sectors. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to bring together original research and review articles on the latest advances, technologies, solutions, applications and new challenges of flexible sensing technologies, especially wearable flexible technologies, in the field of agriculture and food.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

(1) Novel preparation method for flexible sensors;

(2) Low-cost flexible sensors;

(3) The application of flexible technology in the field of agriculture;

(4) Flexible technology in the field of non-destructive testing of food;

(5) Wearable sensing technology for the monitoring and detection of living organisms;

(6) Low-cost flexible diagnostic techniques for food analysis;

(7) New indicator technology for agrifood.
