Active Research Environment for the Next Generation of Automobiles

Acronym:

ARENA2036

Funding:

Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany)

Duration:

07/2013 – 06/2028

Abstract

The research campus ARENA2036 brings together researchers and engineers from institutes and companies relating to production and lightweight materials.. They explore and develop competitive production models for the flexible automotive factory of the future in 2036, the 150th anniversary of the automobile.

Lightweight materials such as fiber composites will by then be as common as steel and aluminum in today mass production. In addition, flexible loosely-coupled production cells will replace the rigid manufacturing line of today, exploiting new opportunities for the application of human-robot-cooperation.

In addition to the University of Stuttgart as the coordinator, the ARENA 2036 consortium includes the following institutions and companies: German Institutes for Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf (DITF), German Aerospace Center (DLR), Fraunhofer Gesellschaft (FhG), BASF SE, Daimler AG and Robert Bosch GmbH, the Artur Bär Maschinenbau GmbH and DYNAmore GmbH.

The research program of ARENA2036 is divided into the three technology areas materials and construction, digital simulation and prototyping, production and research factory as well as in the cross-sectional area of creativity - cooperation model - transfer of skills.

The project has a run-time of at least 15 years.
