Purpose and goal
RanLOS´s objectives were to verify the patent pending measurement method the company offers, produce preliminary manufacturing documentation and initiate dialogues with prospective customers and partners. These goals have been met with very good result. RanLOS has ongoing dialogues with customers and partners in Sweden, Japan and South Korea. The company also has taken preliminary steps for production of demo units.
Expected results and effects
The project has progressed according to plan and the results are as expected. Testing and verification of the components in the system have been according to plan and it has been possible to accurately verify the simulations with measurements. The dialogues with prospective customers have also been successful. This means that it will most likely result in business negotiations beginning during the autumn with possible deliveries in 2018.
Planned approach and implementation
Tests and verifications have been following a verification plan based on previous theoretical studies and simulations. According to this plan, measurements have been performed in an anechoic chamber at Chalmers, together with additional simulations to complement and verify the earlier results. Good agreement between simulations and measurements have been achieved. The results will be compiled in a research article that will be submitted during the autumn. . Business plan and customer dialogue have been developed in close collaboration with potential customers and partners.
