Prof. Dr Calogero Maria Oddo: The Age of “Artificial Touch”

The bionic arm that restores the sense of touch to the people with an amputated limb has transcended the realm of science fiction and the stories about cyborgs. Scientists have taken a step further in implementing knowledge in the neurophysiology of human touch. In the near future, we will also be able to achieve touch via a mobile phone or tablet. It is only a matter of days that robots will start interacting with their environment only via touch. We talked with Dr Calogero Maria Oddo from Sant Anna School of Advanced Studies (SSSA) in Pisa about the advance of the age of “artificial touch” and everything that it brings. Dr Oddo is one of the world leading researchers in… више

Confluence Belgrade – Golden team of naval architecture students

Last year, the students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering returned with a gold medal from the Hydrocontest 2018, the international competition of naval architecture students, where they won the Mass Transport category race. Their conceptual design, blueprint, calculations, project design and the small remote-controlled cargo vessel they made on their own were the most innovative and with the best features. The vessel reached its destination in the shortest possible time. Thanks to this success, our student team was invited to Monaco for an even more inspiring competition, the Solar & Energy Boat Challenge, which demands building a larger man-operated vessel. Besides student teams, shipbuilding companies also participate in the event, and the competition is organized in three categories. више

Professor van Swaaij is a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAV), ACTI Netherlands Academy of Technology and Innovation and the Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities. As a Professor of chemical engineering, he has managed numerous studies in the field of multiphase reactors, the development of new reactors and energy conversion technologies. Since the late… више

Aurora’s safe flight to world heights

Another success of the students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Dušan Babić, Lazar Popović, Radovan Đurović, Đorđe Trampa and Nikola Popović, students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade who work on the Aurora project, won the first place in the first round of the international student competition Airbus Sloshing Rocket 2019 for the conceptual design of the rocket with a tank which minimizes the sloshing effect. This design was declared the best among 50 competing teams from the whole world. This opened up the team’s way to Patras, Greece, where the second round of this competition will be held in July. In this round, the team’s technical solution will be assessed, i.e. the design, range and time… више
