What is adaptronic?
Due to the constantly growing demands on modern structure systems today conventional passive or active mechatronic approaches more and more reach their technical and economic feasibility limits. Adaptive structure technology, in short adaptronics, is an innovative, new cross sectional technology for the optimization of structure systems and is one of Fraunhofer Gesellschaft's guiding innovations.
The need for innovative adaptronic measures is rising for many fields of application.
Fields of Research
Vibration Reduction, Noise Reduction, Shape Control, Structural Health Monitoring and Energy Harvesting among lots of others take place in the Fields of Research.
