Smart materials for high-tech products

The droning of a car driving along the highway can be nerve-racking. Often, a driver cannot understand the passengers in the rear seat, not to mention the pianissimo on the car stereo. Actually, though, there are ways to drive this disruptive vibration out of the car. This is possible thanks to “smart materials” – intelligent materials that can tailor their own condition to changing situations with highest speed. The possible applications are diverse and promising – not just for carmakers but also for mechanical engineering and the electronics industry. This is why 11 Fraunhofer Institutes have joined forces to create the “Adaptronics Alliance,” making new, “smart” solutions marketable.
