Sustainable and closed material cycles made from biogenic and recycled resources are becoming increasingly relevant as raw materials become limited. The goal of the project is to develop an integrated methodology for the material, process, and product development of mycelium composite materials using the example of cooler boxes. Mycelia has the potential to transform biomass with its thread-like hyphae into compact structures in just a few days. The project addresses current challenges in the product life cycle in order to design optimized material cycles using mycelium technology. The research framework includes the use of AI-based methods for identifying material combinations and for quality assurance.

The logistics services provided by seaports and inland ports are crucial for German imports and exports and for the global distribution chains of the German automotive industry. Vehicle compounds serve as hubs that are an integral part of the German automotive industry's finished vehicle logistics. Despite this central role, vehicle compound operators face challenges such as increasing handling volumes, limited terminal space, staff shortages and growing demands for efficiency and flexibility.

The AutoLog research project aims to explore and realise optimisation potential through the use of automated driving at vehicle compounds. The project aims to increase the efficiency and flexibility of terminal operations through technological developments for the digitalisation of processes and the automation of driving movements.

The main objectives of the project are

Suitability of automated driving at vehicle compounds: Investigation of the process and infrastructure requirements at the vehicle compound for the successful implementation of automated driving.

Technical infrastructure and sensors: Developing the design of the technical infrastructure and sensor technology to ensure robust and safe vehicle control.

Human-machine interactions: Investigating how human-machine interactions can be designed to enable intuitive and safe interaction between automated and non-automated processes.

Optimisation potential for storage and logistics processes: Identification of optimisation potential for related storage and logistics processes through the introduction of automated driving.

By specifically researching and implementing these objectives, the AutoLog project aims to overcome the challenges of vehicle compounds and sustainably improve the future of finished vehicle logistics.

Complementary application of mathematical and discrete-event models to solve complex planning and control problems in offshore construction logistics

Offshore construction logistics for wind farms define a complex planning and control problem for which there are no established methods. Discrete-event simulation methods or mathematical optimizations are used, which offer their advantages and disadvantages in terms of runtime, level of detail, and optimality constraints.

After the first project phase has laid the foundations in different models and a transformation framework, the second phase focuses on complementary use. In addition to increasing the problem complexity, a cascading framework will be developed that selects suitable model variants and combines them concerning necessary levels of abstraction.

As part of the research project, a health-promoting assembly system is being developed for individual ergonomic optimization with adaptive material provision. A sensor system consisting of wearables and cameras records relevant data during work. The central element uses a digital twin that maps a 3D simulation of the work process, including human and assembly system models based on the recorded actual data. Based on the data, ergonomic optimizations are made, whereby the assembly station is initially set up, and the material arrangement is continuously dynamically adapted to the process execution of the individual employee during assembly.
