PDRL designed the CIFF award

When opportunity arise, we like to support local initiatives and entrepreneurs. So, when Carl International Film Festival (CIFF) approach us with their idea for a new award we were more than willing to listen. Henrik JP Åkesson, head of festival, envisioned an award that was a three dimensional version of their logotype. He also had […]

Studentprojekt: Samverkande autonoma robotar utvecklade av samarbetande ingenjörsteam

Hur angriper man på ett effektivt sätt en designutmaning där flera olika ingenjörsteam utvecklar och levererar delar av totallösningen? Det har studenterna i årskurs två funderat på under våren när dom jobbat med en mekatronisk utmaning där uppgiften var att konstruera, bygga och programmera en autonom robot. Utmaning i projektkursen MT1538 fokuserade även i år […]

Simulation-driven design, Projects 2018

Modelling and simulation are today a natural part of engineering design in businesses of all types and sizes. However, transition from simulation as primary a tool for verifying solutions that are already decided upon towards the use of simulation to stimulate creation of new concepts and provide guidance towards more optimized designs, especially in early […]

The Decision Arena, transforming data into knowledge in conceptual design

One success factor in engineering design is the ability to make effective and risk-managed decisions in a timely manner. Rarely is a single person sufficient to resolve today’s complex, connected issues. Rather, a group of stakeholders possessing required expert knowledge needs to be enrolled as these issues normally requires a wide variety of expert competences, […]

Data-driven modelling in the era of Industry 4.0: A case study of friction modelling in sheet metal forming simulations

ABSTRACT With growing demands on quality of produced parts, concepts like zero-defect manufacturing are gaining increasing importance. As one of the means to achieve this, industries strive to attain the ability to control product/process parameters through connected manufacturing technologies and model-based control systems that utilize process/machine data for predicting optimum system conditions without human intervention. […]

Augment skills and knowledge of engineering students through design-build-test projects

The engineer of the 21st century is expected to possess a broad range of skills and abilities. Besides more traditional technical knowledge and engineering skills, interpersonal skills, critical thinking, creativity, and design makes its way into the curriculum of our engineering education. Our underlying pedagogical approach to teaching design is based on constructivism. Which basically […]

Samverkande robotar utvecklade av samarbetande ingenjörsteam

Studenterna i årskurs två har under vårterminen jobbat med en mekatronisk utmaning där uppgiften var att konstruera, bygga och programmera en autonom robot. Årets utmaning i projektkursen MT1458 fokuserade på samarbete, roboten skulle lösa en given uppgift så bra som möjligt genom att samarbeta med en robot konstruerad av en annan grupp studenter. En viktig […]
