To develop advanced pneumatic and hydraulic piston valves with much better dynamic properties and low energy consumption based on piezo actuator technology and pistons made of composite materials and hard coatings, for production in the festo plant.
To improve aluminium-magnesium alloy sheets' and plates' properties and make them suitable for marine applications, by improving the (i) property - structure - processing relations, and (ii) welding conditions and (iii) evaluating the recycling potential of aluminium containing vessels.
To comprise research, development, fabrication and characterisation of new generations of miniaturised passive components (inductors, transformers), sensors (pressure, temperature) as well as microsystems for life science applications using the advanced ltcc technology.
To improve classical regulation approaches and systems usually based on linear models for the control of temperature processes. An advanced intelligent nonlinear system based on soft computing methods will be developed.
The main purpose is the development of mobile traffic signalisation devices which will be connected to a control centre via a gsm/gprs/umts network. The operators in the control centre would have real time traffic data available and could intervene accordingly.
An advanced and multi-resolution time-frequency technique will be applied - fractional wavelet analysis as self-standing software for analysis of systems response in terms of signal processing (e.G. Signals generated with transient and dynamic responses, two dimensional signals (video signals)).
Synthesis of au nano-particles with well-controlled shapes, sizes and structures, by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis including the comparative analysis of particles' characteristics and investigating their biocompatibility in-vitro and in-vivo for dental/medical purposes.
At the company termit, 50,000 tonnes of waste sludge is landfilled annually. Based on preliminary research it was found that with the addition of different waste and after firing, lightweight aggregate could be obtained, which is suitable for the production of lightweight concrete products.
The tested project will study and develop a next-generation multilingual text-to-speech (tts) engine that will be able to produce close-to-natural sounding synthetic speech for several south slavic languages involved in the project.
The project will develop the application integrating xml intelligent forms with voice engine able to communicate with doctors, patients and medical information systems so that a patient's medical records would be accessible instantaneously at a sick bed during the doctor's round.
