Research Activities

The LAI is specialized in modeling (using developed analytical models and FEM) and design optimization of rotating and linear electric motors and actuators. The design optimization is performed using deterministic methods (based on various gradient methods – the commercial software ProDesign) or stochastic ones (a genetic algorithm developed by the LAI members, or design for (…)

The combination of existing technologies and the use of new smart materials leads to new innovative devices.In the field of piezoelectric actuators, two main axes of research are followed. One axis addresses the generation of a touch feeling: a piezoelectric actuator generates vibrations on a touch screen so that the user feels a modified friction (…)
