Improving and re-engineering of international freight transport chains with the target being sustainable freight mobility. The aim is to stimulate freight chains in europe, and improve and develop the competitiveness of intermodal transport chains.
Development of a new technology allowing a very high level of integration applied to the automotive industry to extend the 'stop-start' functionality for high volumes at low cost.
The project aims to develop a smart active system to reduce the harmful chatter vibrations that appear in high speed milling machines and limit their precision and productivity
Classical micro-mechanical models are limited to linear phenomena. Our approach is focused on the description of damage and fracture. The final objective is to develop a predictive methodology to reduce prototyping costs.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
To develop formal methods to be applied to the mechatronic systems development process for the automotive industry. Syspeo joins the efforts of one tier 1 company (delphi), two smes (wow company and tni) and two laboratories (ucl and cea list).
To develop a new process of reinforced concrete, based on a very innovative concept, using flat stainless steel bars with rectangular section, instead of traditional corrugated round bars.
Pro-factory is a european network that aims to bring forward and coordinate applications-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d projects in production and robotics for greater competitiveness and sustainability.
European designers desperately seek glossy, deep coloured, ceramics. High temperature sintering causes debinding of pigments. Nanopowders, low temperature sintering and heat resistant pigments will possibly lead to a scale of colours.
To obtain knowledge on 'coextrudable psa (pressure sensitive adhesives)' (co-ex psa) technology for high-quality, self-adhesive laminates and to develop a prototype for a first application.
