CARBODIN is an EU-funded project, under GA n 881814. The overall objective of CARBODIN is to develop innovative and affordable solutions for advanced Car body shells manufacturing and lightweight material strategies for railways, innovative doors and train modularity, contributing to S2R IP1 strategy.
The project investigates modular tooling to manufacture a wide range of parts of varying size. The proposed process will also combine different production techniques, automation concepts, the introduction of co-cured and co-bonded composite parts, and multi-material integrated joints and inserts. Besides, predictive maintenance will be reinforced by testing intelligent sensor nodes.
Composite materials are also the core idea for cost-efficient doors with reduced LCC. The creation of modular tooling combined with 3D technology will enable the production of lighter doors with enhanced thermal and acoustic properties in the door and its vicinity.
CARBODIN will facilitate the design of attractive train interiors by developing a configuration tool based on virtual reality. This will be complemented by innovative manufacturing tools for interior components. The project will also explore other strategies for improving the cost-effectiveness of manufacturing processes, such as the integration of low-volt circuits in panels.
CARBODIN also aims to improve the future HMI system's performance through a European survey to identify key interactions such as drivers’ gestures or voices.
CARBODIN benefits from a strong multidisciplinary consortium made of 14 partners from 7 countries, committed to maximising the project’s impact.
This space will store scientific publications and open access contributions produced during the CARBODIN project. Will be considered contributions Research Papers, Academic Publications, and any other piece of work which will have implications for the project.
