Transportation and mobility

Economical, quiet and comfortable – the vision of the car of tomorrow. New vehicle concepts, lightweight construction and adaptronic materials – smart materials that respond rapidly and flexibly to varying conditions – all play their part. And a quieter vehicle makes it far more fun to sit back and listen to music in surround sound or watch a movie on the rear-seat display. Adaptronics has the potential to optimize vehicle technology, machine-tool/plant construction and aeronautical engineering. Eleven thematically complementary institutes are working together in the Fraunhofer Adaptronics Alliance.
