RuBeeCOMP

Components made in composite material, with integrated wireless communication systems capable of operating in environments hostile to radio frequency: systems, manufacturing technologies and product/ process integrated design platform

Sector

Manufacturing/Electromagnetism/ICT

Product/Objective

Production of components made of composite material, equipped with wireless communication systems capable of operating correctly in environments hostile to radio frequency.

Project Summary

The objective of RuBeeCOMP project is the study, testing and validation of materials, manufacturing technologies and integrated product/process design procedures, for the production of components in composite material; these elements incorporate wireless communication systems capable of correct operation in environments hostile to radio frequency (e.g. water, oil, etc.). The integrated product/process design is carried out through a software platform developed ad hoc, where the entire planning and design course can be implemented through the use of CAD modelling tools, of methodologies and tools for calculation check (CAE) of the operating component performances, taking into account also the effects of manufacturing processes (process simulation) necessary to make it. The platform is calibrated according to a targeted trials campaign as to materials and production technology options.

Innovation

Use of innovative communication protocols deemed to be extremely efficient in the field under consideration; adoption of new materials and production processes designed to lighten the structures in which communication devices are to be integrated; development of an innovative design methodology able to optimize performance of systems made up of a carrying structure and a communication device, in accordance with requisite technical and financial limitations.

ES Role

Development of numerical models for analysis in the structural, electromagnetic and process fields; IT development of the platform.
