Develop a remotely operated power hydraulic manipulator with the aim of combining a computer supported steering system with the powerful capacity of a hydraulic system - able to lift 10 tons with millimetre precision & function underwater
Design,analysis,engineering,protobuild,testing of mid class passenger car, aiming at 40% reduction on co2-emission in the car's lifecycle. Main objectives: lightweight body structure and efficient, clean driveline.
To improve pan-european computer networks for researchers by introducing advanced network technologies (at 34 mbit/s and and beyond)/applications; improving the quality of services and establishing an appropriate management environment.
The aim is to develop and introduce the sophisticated, phased construction process; programming, integrated design including life cycle estimating,an open construction process based on the use of the product model technology.
New coating techniques where highly corrosion-resistant materials are required.With new hvof-technique/automation of mobile equipment and new coating feedstocks of gas atomised powders,corrosion-resistant coatings>applied/checked on site
Comprehensive approach to the continuous improvement of the environmental performance of electronic products over their whole life-cycle, including aspects such as recycling, etc.
The project aim is to develop automated non-destructive sterility test systems for practical use in the food industry.
Research and dissemination of best practice in continuous improvement via a coordinated pan-european network group. new tools and methods will be developed as necessary and relevant.
Feasibility study to anticipate future needs of slaughter- houses and consumers both in quality, hygiene, environment and costs. This should lead to a new set of parameters for the total poultry process and encourage further research.
During the production of pvc-slush moulded instrument panels much waste is generated. This research will develop a technology to process pvc waste into new processable slush compounds, thus enabling recycling in the same application.
