Students test new innovation method in China

Do a Dane and a Chinese have identical preferences when it comes to consumer electronics? And is it possible to crack the code for the Chinese market in only 12 days? Tomorrow, some of the most talented engineering students present the results of an innovation camp in Shanghai to the top management of the Danish company Bang & Olufsen.

Researchers from Aarhus University are behind a new sensor technology that detects damages on wind turbines before they result in substantial visible symptoms. This may pave the way for newer and much cheaper wind turbine designs where the use of materials can be reduced significantly.

New technology makes better wind turbines

Small sensors can detect damages on wind turbines with a precision not seen until now before the damages can be spotted with the naked eye. The technology is ground-breaking and makes it possible to construct wind turbines with a minimum use of construction materials and without compromising safety.
