Smart Morphing & Sensing

Hi everybody,

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.

Smart Wing Design: Royal Society Science Exhibition 1-6 July 2014

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.
