Project Details


This is a Fimecc/EFFIMA/MeKo SHOK project financed during 2011-2014. The goal of the project is to reduce hydraulic losses using a regenerative, multi-chamber cylinder approach and to prove safety and reliability of the software for the digital hydraulic technology. Moreover, the project aims at implementing a fault-tolerant, general purpose platform for digital hydraulic accumulators.
