Freight and energy transport by magnetic levitation train
New concept combines magnetic levitation and energy transmission via superconductor tapes in the rail structure and offers a double benefit for freight logistics.
High-frequency sensor for non-contact torque measurements
Combination of a ferromagnetic sensor film and a high-frequency strip-line enables torque measurements.
Dual lens for radar antennas
Novel lens geometry for focusing radar signals generates a common main lobe direction for separate transmit and receive antennas using a newly developed double lens.
Emergency brake assistant for vehicles and machines
Retrofittable emergency activation system ensures adjustable emergency braking while still allowing the driver to intervene during the braking process.
Loadable inserts in CFRP lightweight design
Novel inserts for CFRP sandwich structures allow cost-efficient manufacturing and require no subsequent joining steps.
A new connecting element for electric connectors on E-machines saves space and is multifunctional.
A balancing assistant for wheelchairs can cope semi-automatically with obstacles with the aid of sensor and control engineering.
A vibration damper as an add-on solution
A damper developed at KIT can efficiently reduce undesirable vibrations in machines and plants.
