MakerTruck | 2019-

MakerTruck syftar till att underlätta och möjliggöra (kulturell) omvandling av individer, företag och organisationer genom att införa snabb prototypning och digital kompetens. Att anpassa sig till förändringar, och lära sig ny kompetens, kommer kräva att individer, företag och organisationer demokratiserar idégenerering och återkoppling. Nya kompetenser och teknologier måste snabbare plockas upp i utbildningssystemet ifall relevans […]

Reverse Engineered Design Automation: Applying Knowledge Based Engineering Techniques to a Case of Automotive Fixtures Design Configuration

Abstract In the production of automotive body components, fixtures are an important part of the ongoing work on geometrical assurance. The fixture is uniquely defined for each component, and the design and configuration of these are time-consuming and takes a lot of effort. The objective with this paper is to explore the use of a […]

V-Com presented at Stanford University

V-Com, a precautionary system that communicates safety-critical information between truck drivers and vulnerable road users was presented by six final year MSc students from Blekinge Institute of Technology and Stanford University at this year’s Stanford EXPE – design experience. In their capstone project, ME310, which runs from October to June, they move in a Design Thinking process through phases of needfinding, ideation, prototyping and more to arrive at a final detail designed product to display at the final exhibition, the EXPE.

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 […]
