CAMISMA: a lightweight seat structure based on thermoplastic FRP

Innovative materials with good weight-specific and mechanical properties as well as the appropriate use of materials in construction are essential to develop efficient vehicles with low emissions.

epsilon: a lightweight body structure for a small electric vehicle

Within the EU-funded project “epsilon”, fka as project coordinator was responsible for creating the concept for the entire vehicle, the package and the structure in CAD.

Crash-deformable battery systems

The energy storage is mostly positioned in those areas in vehicles, which are most unlikely to be deformed during a crash. These areas however are limited and therefore also limit the maximum battery capacity and the range of the vehicle.
