High-lift of future commercial aircraft (SFB 880)

The Collaborative Research Center 880 (CRC) is concerned with the efficiency of the active high-lift of future commercial aircraft.

This research project is motivated by a growing demand for mobility and the trend towards the reduction of energy consumption, travel times and noise. The objectives of the CRC 880 are enabling efficient point-to-point connections, short take-off and landing runways, airports near the city center and the rapid attainment of cruise altitude as well as noise reduction. The final aim is to build quiet and efficient aircraft with short take-off and landing characteristics.

The CRC 880 project consists of 4 sections A, B, C and Z, as well as the individual projects, the progress and results on this website are documented.

A part of the CRC 880 is the graduate program, which is accessed via this site. Announcements for guests and program training, and workshops are organized by the program.

Robotic Systems for Handling and Assembly (SFB 562)

The aim of the Collaborative Research Center 562 is the evolution of methodical and component related fundamentals for the development of robotic systems based on closed kinematic chains in order to improve the promising potential of these robots, particularly with regard to high operating speeds, accelerations, and accuracy.

To reduce the sequence time for handling and assembly applications the most essential goal is to improve operating speeds and accelerations in the working space for given process accuracy. By using conventional serial robot systems these increasing requirements end in a vicious circle. Under these circumstances the request of new robotic systems based on parallel structures is of major importance.

Owing to their framework construction by rod elements, which are poor in mass, parallel structures offer an ideal platform for an active vibration reduction. The integration of these adaptronic components with special adaptive control elements is a promising effective way to make robots both, more accurate and faster and consequently more productive.
