I can share two amazing news with you today. First the research conducted by the Smartwing Morphing Center has made it onto the metro of Paris which you could see at the Metro Station Montparnasse. Take a look at the fresco by clicking on the image below.
Second of all our project “Smart Morphing & Sensing” has been accepted by the European commission as part of the H2020 research effort. The project aims at transposing the technologies developed as part of the Smartwing Morphing Center onto a full scale A320 wing. A big thanks goes out to all the partners involved.
This week the smartwing morphing center was featured in a report on biomimetics made by France 2. Watch the team present our hybrid morphing concepts in the video below. A special thanks to everyone at LAPLACE and IMFT for making this work possible.
The Smart Wing Morphing is proud to say that Dr. Marianna Braza was selected to present at the “Musée des Arts et Métiers”. The topic of the presentation were smart-materials and their use in bio-inspired electroactive morphing. A copy of the presentation can be found here.
As promised as part of this weeks treat an episode each day. We are of to episode 2! As always feel free to comment, ask, suggest… And also don’t forget to take a look at the other content in the Videos section.
So for a good start in the new science season follow us in our road to this July’s Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014 donce by France 3. This weeks treat an episode each day. As always feel free to comment, ask, suggest… And also don’t forget to take a look at the other content in the Videos section.
The team has successfully participated in this years summer science exhibition held by the Royal Society in London from 1-6 of July. In collaboration with Imperial College’s Flow Control group the team had the possibility to show the recent advances made in morphing structures to the public. Thanks a lot to everybody who helped prepare the event and the prototypes. Photos of the event can be found in the gallery below. More photos will be uploaded as we are collecting them from all the participants so be sure to check back later.
