Abstract

The present paper summarizes the recent methodologies, technologies, results and opportunities in the field of analyzing and extending the life cycle of automotive systems by remanufacturing that have been developed within the European research project “CAN REMAN”, conducted by Bayreuth University in cooperation with two other universities and eight industrial partners. The aim of this project is to develop appropriate and affordable testing and diagnostics technologies that enable small and medium sized enterprises (SME) to remanufacture mechatronic vehicle components.
