As batteries play a central role in the mobility of the future, the Fraunhofer ILT in Aachen developed innovative laser-based manufacturing techniques to save energy during production and at the same time enable battery cells with higher power density and a longer service life.
High-performance battery cells are a crucial prerequisite for the successful electrification of the mobile sector. Now researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen have developed innovative laser-based technologies for the production of lithium-ion batteries. The solution presented at HANNOVER MESSE 2023 offers significantly shorter charging times and a longer service life than lithium-ion batteries manufactured in the conventional way.
Virtual human model and platform for AI in product development
At a demonstrator from Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, for example, visitors to the fair can experience how ergonomics at industrial workplaces are analysed by motion capture and optimised with the help of artificial intelligence: 17 sensors determine the precise position of every part of the body so that a virtual model of a person, their posture and their movement sequences is created. On this virtual model, ergonomic measurements are possible without interruptions and spatial limitations. The solution was developed in the Competence Centre Working World.Plus, in which 20 companies and research institutions are developing the potential of artificial intelligence to improve working conditions and competence transfer.
Making better use of the manifold potentials of AI-supported engineering
Whether it’s AI-supported vehicle diagnostics or the optimisation of design data – the potentials of artificial intelligence in engineering are manifold. This is precisely where the AI marketplace comes in. Providers, users and experts can develop AI solutions together on one platform and exchange ideas. The functional platform with app store and development environment will be presented to the professional world for the first time in Hannover. This enables companies to increase their development capacities as well as efficiency in development projects by almost 20 percent and reduce subsequent manufacturing costs by around 13 percent. Hella Gutmann Solutions, for example, shows how well the AI marketplace works. With the help of the platform, the company has developed an AI-supported vehicle diagnosis to automatically detect defective components and thus support workshop employees.
