ABSOLUT - Non-destructive analysis and evaluation of thin layers by air-coupled ultrasound

Within the scope of the R & D project to be carried out in cooperation with NetCo Professional Services GmbH an innovative ultrasonic measuring system is to be developed. The non-destructive system is due for the quality testing of fiber composite materials, joining compounds and multimaterials. The aim is the non-contact measurement with air-coupled ultrasound at typical frequencies (f <2 MHz) with considerably improved resolution. The focus is on the characterization of "thinner" layers, as is not possible until now. Processes are provided for both transmission and reflection measurements, which take into account a different accessibility to the multi-layer object under test (one / both sides).

Productive 4.0

The project „Productive4.0“ is the biggest European research initiative on the area of Industrie 4.0. There are more than 100 partners from 19 European countries working under the coordination of Infineon Technologies AG on the digitalization and integration of the industry. Partners like BMW, Bosch, Philips, Thales, NXP, STM, SAP, ABB, Volvo, Ericsson and leading research institutions like Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, TU Dresden and ifak.

MESES - Multi-phase current sensor with integrated compensation of interfering signals for electric vehicles

The aim of the collaborative project is the research of a novel current sensor which is optimally adapted to the special requirements of e-mobility. Through the use of new algorithms, combined with the simultaneous measurement of the currents in the feed and return line, the current measurement is to be carried out more accurately, more immune to interference and more efficiently.

FEEDBACCAR - Future Electric Energy Distribution by Aggregated Clusters and Cars with Automated Response

The project includes research and development work on a future load management for electric vehicles in demand side management networks from the control room and demand response from the vehicle, presented on a smart home application based on inductive bidirectional charging at 11 kW.

The principle higher network availability of vehicles with inductive charging technology will be demonstrated in a fleet test with six vehicles at various locations. The primary operating reserve market is to be addressed via controlled charging processes, with the control via a charging control system ensuring that a secure service can be provided for marketing.

OMD - Object reconstruction in microwave defectoscopy

The aim of the research project is the development of a tool for the clear identification of defects by improving the recording techniques and the reconstruction itself. In the future, this will enhance the detection of smaller or critical defects. Together with the measured data acquired, an autonomous detection and high-resolution reconstruction of geometries and defects is to be developed. The project focuses on FRPs with varying defect types and the algorithm-based (autonomous) interpretation of the measured reflection signatures.
