Potencial bionike za prilagajanje na ekstremna okolja

Po moji prvi avtorski knjigi o bioniki, izdani lansko leto, sem se usmeril v iskanje potencialnih možnosti uporabe bionike na zelo specifičnih področjih. Zasledil sem intenziven razvoj, ki se navezuje na vesoljske tehnologije. Če si predstavljamo, da bodo v prihodnosti ljudje raziskovali oddaljene meje vesolja in se bodo morali prilagajati ekstremnim okoljem, je povsem pričakovano, da bo potrebno razviti tehnologije, ki bodo tem izzivom kos.

Nekateri tehnološki izzivi Industrije 4.0

Industrija 4.0 (I 4.0), pametne tovarne, pametni izdelki itd. so v zadnjem času tema, o kateri se veliko razpravlja na različnih nivojih družbe v Evropi. Proizvodni procesi, ki bodo krmiljeni s pametnimi mrežami in pametnimi sistemi, bodo imeli v prihodnje velik vpliv na naše življenje in na družbo v celoti. Pametna proizvodnja bo vodena s pomočjo inteligentnih programskih orodij, ki bodo povezana s pametnimi orodji in stroji ter napravami.

Air release of used hydraulic mineral-based oils

The presence of air in the hydraulic system or in the hydraulic fluid itself, either in its elementary form e.g., as an air pocket or bubble, or in the form of dissolved air, causes much inconvenience. This is manifested in the form of unwanted operation of the hydraulic system, causing accelerated ageing of the fluid, especially mineral oil.

Design guidelines for non-standard plugs

The paper shows and explains experimental activities, performed to evaluate mechanical response of non-standard plug as a consequence of different loading type. In-depth understanding of plug behavior helps to setup design guidelines for such components.

Design and control of miniature water vessels

This paper presents the design and practical realization of two mechatronic systems designed to float in the water. The paper first presents a remotely controlled pneumatically powered boat, as an example of ecological and unconventional vessels. The boat is constructed with a proper arrangement of components to ensure its better balance. The propeller is driven by an air motor that enables the propulsion of the boat.
