Project State



In the e-Kinematix project, a virtual research environment for the development of motion devices is being established. For this purpose, technologies for project organization, realization and documentation are provided. Tools for administration, research, synthesis and analysis will be created in individual modules. Particularly important in the development is the documentation of the results of the work steps and the linking of the collected data. The basis for the e-Kinematix project is the e-research environment eSciDoc, the Digital Mechanism and Gear Library, short DMG-Lib and the application Gecko. The combination creates a comprehensive tool to support the development process.


e-Kinematix is a DfG-funded project, in which the Institute for Mechanism Theory, Machine Dynamics and Robotics, the Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe and the FG Konstruktionstechnik of the Technical University Ilmenau are involved.
