Agile Virtual Testing: Alignment of Tesing Environments

Show project description Hide project description

The implementation of the vertical and horizontal consistency within the functional test process of avionic systems is the main objective of the German national research project AGILE-VT.

The first level of consistency focuses on interoperability in the vertical and horizontal linkage of test environments. For this purpose, the test preparation and test execution is optimized to such an extent that it is not restricted to a specific test environment. It should be portable to other test environments at a significantly lower cost than at present.

The second level of consistency focuses on the interoperability in test development and design support during the test preparation. For this purpose, the phase of test case creation is optimized so far that test cases can be exchanged across the boundaries of test departments in a common standard. In addition, the reusability of results from the test process will be increased by preparing them and suggesting them to the test engineer as part of design support.

The two listed groups of technological goals follow the main goal of consistency and will result in the achievement of interoperability in functional testing of aircraft.

Collaborative robot-robot-human interaction for fruit laying

Show project description Hide project description

Depending on flexibility and capacity requirements, placing fruit on conveyors is either completely manual or fully automated in large plants. Affiliated to the process is a quality control and a final packaging. Against this background, large rationalization potentials for medium flexibility and capacity requirements can be identified by partial automation. The aim of the project is the development of a collaborative fruit lay-up system, which is freely scalable in terms of both employee and robot use and can support automated handling, quality control and packaging. The system should be universally applicable and can be adapted quickly to different types of fruit depending on the season. An essential feature is an intuitive work organization between human and robot.

Integrated Adative Interaction System for Intermodal Mobility

Show project description Hide project description


Der Übergang zwischen verschiedenen Verkehrsmitteln ist oft mit Herausforderungen verbunden, bspw. bei der Mitnahme von Gepäck beim Umsteigen von der Bahn in den Bus. Mobilitätslösungen, die individuell den Übergang zwischen verschiedenen Verkehrsmitteln unterstützen, versprechen eine passgenaue Mobilität und somit höhere Lebensqualität.

Ziele und Vorgehen

Im Projekt soll ein Mobilitätskonzept für die intermodale Mobilität von Personen mit körperlichen Einschränkungen erstellt werden, dessen Hauptgegenstand autonome miniaturisierte Fahrzeuge sind, die während intermodaler Reisen intelligent unterstützen. Für eine effektive Unterstützung (Ein-, Ausstiegs- oder Gehhilfen und Personen- sowie Gepäcktransport), erfolgt eine Kommunikation und Interaktion mit anderen Fahrzeugen (Bahnen, Bussen etc.) und der Infrastruktur (Haltestellen, Aufzügen etc.). Ferner soll eine selbstlernende, adaptive Steuerung und ein modulares Sensorframework konzipiert und so ein teil- und vollautonomes Fahren in konfliktären Verkehrsräumen möglich werden. Außerdem sollen adaptive altersgerechte Benutzerschnittstellen partizipativ gestaltet und das Konzept benutzerseitig evaluiert werden.

Innovationen und Perspektiven

Die Fahrzeuge verbinden Verkehrsmittel intelligent und unterstützen so Übergänge. Durch adaptive Interaktionsschnittstellen und eine intelligente Steuerung für Verkehrsräume mit unterschiedlichen Nutzungen werden Benutzerfreundlichkeit und Effizienz gesteigert.

Maritime Regional Network for Integrated Digital Working and Learning

Show project description Hide project description

The objective of MARIDAL is the establishment of a regional, industry-related maritime transfer network that will initiate activities in the sense of a "digital pilot" on the subject of digital learning on ships and in the port, as well as qualifying for the digitized port world. The main application areas are the digitized maritime supply chain, the Smart Shipping, and the Digital Port. The focus is on the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the maritime sector, as the resources for linking pedagogy and didactics, technology and organizational development are often lacking in SMEs and there is a need for learning from and among themselves. As a result, synergies can be exploited and competencies for the development of intensified knowledge transfer and qualification concepts can be built commonly.

WELD 4.0

Redesigning Welding Profile for the Needs of Industry 4.0

Show project description Hide project description

WELD 4.0 is going to innovate the Welding VET by updating the European Welder profile, to harmonise and standardise requirements and training standards across Europe. The enhanced profile is also addressing new technologies in the context of Industry 4.0. Based on that profile, innovative tools are developed, including new approaches of teaching and learning using methods for skill and competence development such as Game Based Learning, Simulators and Serious Gaming. The new approach is piloted through hands-on approach seminars in three different industrial countries in Europe: Germany, Portugal and the UK.
