We combine electro mobility with renewable energies for concepts of autonomous driving

The mobility of the future is safe, clean, efficient - and offers enormous growth and prosperity opportunities for

our country. In order to develop autonomous driving together with the economy and science, and to prepare higher degrees of automation and Networking, "digital test fields" are to be developed - subsidised by the Federal

Government. Together with automotive manufacturers and companies from the digital economy, the latest technologies for autonomous driving are to be tried out here. Implementation takes place based on electro mobility from renewable energies. This digital test field for autonomous driving that is to be newly developed supplements the digital test fields planned to date in urban regions and on the A9 motorway.

Interface and surface analytics in industrial manufacturing processes for quality control

The network develops innovative cost-attractive boundary and surface analyses as in-line or on-line variants for integration into industrial manufacturing and processing processes. This leads to an increase in the degree of automation, a reduction in reject rates and a reduction in maintenance and repair work. The end result is a sustained improvement in the quality of the products produced through optimized production processes, while at the same time conserving resources.

Highly integrated microphotonics & microproduction of the future MyHi-Light

Miniaturization is a feature of almost all industries and technologies, including optical technologies. Miniaturization enables a more flexible use with reduced space requirements and integration of different functionalities of a system in a closed production step. The development focus in the network is on the development of optical and electro-optical components as well as standardized and automated manufacturing processes for the production and assembly of highly integrated optical components and systems. The network supports the members in coming together for developments in this area.

Optical measuring technology & sensors for the production of the future - industry 4.0

In light of current developments and challenges, intelligent, linked measuring technology and sensors are to be implemented for the production of the future (industry 4.0) in the scope of this network. Integration of such systems into production is to make it possible to automatically produce customer-specific products in standardised and controlled production processes. The developments of new measuring technology from the macro to the nano range and development of intelligent, linked process measuring technology and sensors, to development of new measuring methods in the area of imaging are to play central roles. As a supplementary aspect, industry 4.0 and the interfaces and standards needed for this in the area of measuring technology and sensors for industrial production are analysed and developed.

Economical and sustainable (injection moulding)

In the network WinInMo companies have joined together around the injection moulding technology: From tool construction, coating, hot runner and temperature control technology to simulation, sensor technology and water treatment. Together we create innovations for a sustainable and permanently reliable injection moulding process. Our goals include energy savings, optimisation of heating and temperature control circuits and the operational reliability of cooling water circuits. This requires a new conception and development of the thermal installation space and the cooling water treatment. We develop coordinated components around the injection moulding tool and then offer them to the customer as a complete solution.

Augmented Reality for industrial applications

The target of the cooperation network promoted by the Federal Ministry of Economics is initiating innovations around augmented reality, planning and implementing the corresponding development projects and marketing the products or technologies resulting from this together. The previous network partners already form a complete value-added chain – from component manufacturers to processors of sensor data, specialists of image processing, indoor navigation and mapping, to software providers and users.

Resource-efficient forming

The network "effizientum" is to enable partners to handle the changes that result from the future requirements to resource-efficient production processes. The network is to offer a platform in order to not leave companies to fend for themselves, and to enable individual companies to consistently use the advantages of cooperation with specialised colleagues in the industry. The focus is on improvements and new developments of processes as well as machines or assemblies or components. The focus continues to be on accessories for forming systems.

Light-weight parts for electro mobility 

Electro mobility hails a new technical era in the traffic area. This radical change will specifically affect the automotive supplier industry. Various purchased parts will be completely obsolete or changed severely. The e-mobility network for light-weight parts for electro mobility is to give the medium-sized supplier industry a platform that permits early and solid preparation for the pending changes. The network is formed by medium-sized suppliers who have many years of experience in the production of components, assemblies and systems in automotive production.

Innovative approaches for existing cleaning methods 

Very fine cleaning comprises removal of undesired substances or material structures that may, for example, change

the roughness, wetting properties or chemical, electrical and visual properties of surfaces in undesired ways. In addition to cleaning methods, the cleaning process also comprises the detection of contamination required in advance. The network is interdisciplinary, linking various areas of expertise from practice and research.

Efficient refrigeration technology without refrigerants that harm the climate

As compared to conventional compressor chillers, magnetic cooling offers a number of advantages, such as higher efficiency, avoidance of gaseous refrigerants and lower vibrations or lower noise emissions. In order to achieve a broad use of magnetocalorics, the approaches that have only been demonstrated in research and lab scales must be pursued further and developed. In the magnetocalorics Innovation network, companies and research facilities cooperate to perform their developments together. The network processes all research and development subjects that are relevant for improving efficiency and for suitability for use of magnetocalorics in different applications.
