|6. Eindhoven University of Technology|
|Mobility is a basic human need. It is a prerequisite for a healthy economy and sustainable society. However, our current mobility system is far from sustainable: pollution, noise, congestion, inefficient use of public space and high accidents rates are drastically impacting on the economy and our well-being. At TU/e we believe that a future of fully sustainable mobility is possible and within reach. In fact, our students and over 200 researchers who conduct research on mobility related issues, are committed to accelerate the transition to a sustainable mobile future.
We are working towards mobility that is safe and clean and that minimizes the use of scarce urban space. Mobility that is accessible to all at reasonable cost. Solutions that are being researched are both in-vehicle ones as well as ones outside the vehicle:
Driven by technology, TU/e is working on solutions for a sustainable mobile future through:

|11. POLYSCOPE Polymers|
|1. Composite Guiderail Rollerblind Sunroof Module
The winning nomination was for the first composite guide rails on a rollerblind sunroof module for the panoramic roof on two models of multipurpose vehicles (MPVs) from Renault called the Scenic and the Grand Scenic and have been in commercial production since 2016. The move from aluminium extrusions to thermoplastic composite lowered part weight and operating noise, simplified sunroof construction and installation on the vehicle assembly line, reduced costs, and increased headspace in the passenger compartment. Webasto engineered the injection molded rails to include a high level of functional integration while simultaneously reducing part count, assembly operations, and manufacturing time, cost, and complexity. XIRAN® SGH30EB — a fiberglass-reinforced copolymer of styrene maleic anhydride and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (GR-SMA/ABS) from Polyscope — was optimized both to ensure high bond strength to the polyurethane adhesive used to mount the glass to the module and the module to the body-in-white (BIW) roof structure, and to ensure high dimensional stability critical for smooth operation of the rollerblind.

|2. Low Warpage PP-GF for High Precision Automotive Parts
Best in class warpage and dimensional stability enables developers to create hybrid PP overmolded structural parts. Our CLTE value are much closer to metal (aluminium, steel) which reduces the internal stresses in the assembly and therefore increase long term quality. The improved dimensional stability also helps to replace metals and/or higher priced performance polymers (Air flow sensors). Narrow tolerance typical for efficient fan designs, sliding parts or pump designs can now be obtained with our XILOY™ PP/SMA compound. The improved adhesion to fibers – both glass and optical carbon fibers – enables the XILOY™ PP/SMA to perform even with lower fibers content compared to highly filed compounds. In combination with Tg increase, the XILOY™ PP/SMA shows improved mechanical performance at higher application temperatures. This helps product designers to optimize their designs to obtain the best possible lightweight solution. To reduce the overall weight of a part, chemical or physical foaming is often used. The SMA based PP has an improved melt strength which improves the cell structure and therefore resulting the most efficient overall weight reduction.
3. Environmental-stress-crack-resistant PMMA for Automotive LED Lighting
Over the past years LED has become the new standard for lightning in automotive, not only for ambient interior lightning but also for exterior head- and tail lights. Compared to Xenon, halogen and traditional light-bulbs, the temperatures of LED lamps are significantly lower. This lower temperature allows for the use of PMMA instead of glass, PC or other high-temperature resistant materials. From an optical point of view, PMMA is the preferred material for lightning: it has the best transparency (or light transmittance) and color. However, PMMA is prone to environmental stress cracking when exposed to certain chemicals, such as ethanol, or UV-light under hot and humid conditions. This stress-cracking is highly undesirable in lighting because it destroys the light quality. To solve this issue, we have developed an SMA-modified PMMA with improved environmental stress-crack resistance and good optical performance.
4. A new SMI/PA alloy with excellent dimensional stability and good adhesion properties designed for medium-temperature hybrid precision parts
By combining our high-temperature, fully amorphous SMI with semi-crystalline PA6 we get the best of both worlds: a dimensionally stable and stiff material up to 150-160⁰C with a very low moisture uptake and good chemical resistance. The low moisture uptake and the remaining high modulus at increasing temperature makes this material an excellent candidate for high-precision parts. On top of that, the SMI delivers good adhesion to metal and other reinforcements, such as organosheets, allowing for a simple over-molding process to produce hybrid parts. Altogether, this material is an excellent candidate for large, complex, lightweight parts that require high-precision and function integration.

|15. SOLID SANDS|
|The one-stop shop for C and C++ compiler and library testing, validation and safety services
SuperTest is the test and validation suite for C and C++ compilers that has tracked the (ISO) language specifications for more than 30 years. It is a complete validation environment with:
· A huge library of hand-written test.
· A large body of generated tests.
· A framework to easily set-up and run compiler validations.
· A report generator that provides comprehensive overviews of validation results in multiple formats, including HTML, and will immediately identify regressions of the latest compiler build compared to a designated reference.
SuperTest also includes a number of unique features that are not found in other test suites.
SuperTest is used to qualify compilers for functional safety. As functional safety is one of the most important features in many embedded systems today, especially within sectors such as automotive, industrial automation and medical. Compiler qualification is the process that can be used to develop the required confidence in the compiler. Compiler testing against the language specification is the proper method for this. SuperTest and its requirement traceability is the best test suite for compiler qualification.
There are different functional safety standards for which you can use SuperTest to qualify your compiler or library.Compiler Assessment
With this compiler assessment service, Solid Sands performs an assessment of a supplied compiler with SuperTest.This service is interesting for:
· application developers who do not want or do not have the knowledge in house to setup a compiler testing environment, but do want to ensure that the used compiler, and updates thereof, conform to minimum quality standards.
· companies that experience a shortage in resources.
· for compiler developers who already have in-house compiler testing, but want a third party to do independent quality control.
· companies that want to extend their compiler testing environment, but still need to be convinced of the quality SuperTest offers.
By supplying us with a complete compilation and execution environment (e.g. simulator or emulator), including any necessary software usage rights, we will do a full SuperTest run on your compiler to ensure the quality of the compiler you are developing or using.
After this run you will receive an assessment summary of the failures and their severity as found by SuperTest.At the end you will have enough knowledge of the current quality of the compiler you develop or use. A percentage of the costs for this assessment will be deducted from the regular SuperTest license fee if ordered within 3 months after we have communicated the outcome of the test-runs.
