IW | A new class of materials impresses with its absence of main elements and limitless combination possibilities. The so-called high entropy alloys are being researched, among others, at the Institute of Materials Science (IW) of Leibniz University Hannover.
ITA/IPH | How to compensate the restricted vision in forklifts with the help of strategically placed cameras and augmented reality glasses? Scientists from ITA and IPH are jointly tackling this question.
match | To make future highly automated vehicles safer, scientists have equipped a driver’s seat with soft pneumatic actuators. Jan Peters from match presented the project at the international robotics conference IROS and won a prize.
IFW | IPH | LZH | This year, the Hannover Messe is taking place as a digital event. The Mittelstand 4.0-Kompetenzzentrum Hannover and the IPH are each present with a digital booth. Niedersachsen ADDITIV is represented at the joint stand of the state of Lower Saxony.
match | The construction industry is currently facing three significant challenges: workforce shortage, low productivity and high environmental impact. To counter these, researchers at the match develop algorithms for robot-based additive manufacturing of near-net-shape concrete components.
