LIT Lecture May 9, 2018
Space for curiosity!
Thinking cars, subways on computer chips, atoms’ fingerprints – if you want to know, what JKU research is all about, you are cordially invited to join the LIT Lecture Series!
The next three topics are presented on 9 May 2018 at 12:00, Festsaal, JKU.
- "Exoskeletal Robotic Systems" Andreas Müller (LIT / Institute of Robotics)
- "Mixed Finite Elements for Smart Materials and Structures" Astrid Pechstein (LIT / Institute of Technical Mechanics)
- "Autonomous Driving: A Legal Challenge?" Stefan Schumann (LIT / Institute for Criminal Law)

Exoskeletal Robotic Systems
Inspired by the problem of the worldwide population aging, this project bundles the JKU competences in robotics, actuators, sensors and smart materials to develop a wearable robotic system for movement assistance and rehabilitation of the human body.

Mixed Finite Elements for Smart Materials and Structures
In smart structures, layers of piezoelectric materials are integrated into (lightweight) composites. We design finite elements for the simulation of such structures which allow to dramatically reduce computational costs while maintaining accuracy.

Autonomous Driving: A Legal Challenge?
Discussing autonomous driving in law often means: Whom to blame when algorithms fail? The AUD/A project aims at clarifying due diligence standards to prevent criminal liability. Plus, how the law needs to be adapted to the developing technologies.
