  • Publication number: 20210095141
    Abstract: Systems and methods for optimizing the formulation of materials are provided. The systems and methods employ a data-driven, iterative approach to derivate optimal material formulations. One portion of the system includes a sample automation system that outputs the material samples to be tested, and a second portion of the system includes an optimization engine that analyzes data extracted from the material samples and generates additional formulations for materials to be printed and tested. This process continues so that optimal material formulations can be determined based on desired mechanical properties of the material to be optimized. The optimization engine can further be capable of predicting results of formulation that have not yet been tested and using those predictions to further drive the next suggested materials to be tested.

  • Publication number: 20200262415
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a method for wear prediction of a drivetrain of a motor vehicle, wherein, during operation of the motor vehicle a computing device of the motor vehicle receives at least one item of operating information describing an operating state of a component of the drivetrain, which operating information is recorded by at least one sensor of the motor vehicle and transmitted to the computing device, wherein the operating information and/or comparison information generated by using the operating information is compared to reference information stored in the computing device, wherein wear information describing wear of the component is generated depending on said comparison.
