More security in public spaces without forfeiting privacy or personal rights. The Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) exhibits at the CeBIT 2014 (Hall 9, Stall E40), that this need not be contradictory. The crisis management system SAFEST with the help of infrared cameras, recognizes critical situations in crowds and guides people in danger away from the dangerous zone. In doing so neither movement profiles nor personal data is recorded.
The Smart-City-Institute FOKUS with the joint project SAFEST (Social-Area Framework for Early Security Triggers at Airports) will show at this year’s CeBIT,...06.03.2014 | Read more
Big Data is one of the key research and strategy topics for the world of business. Now 24 Fraunhofer Institutes have come together to pool their expertise in the new Big Data Alliance, creating a single point of contact for companies, politicians and researchers. The alliance will make its debut appearance at CeBIT 2014 (Hall 9, Booth E40).
There were some two sextillion bytes of data stored worldwide last year. Being able to efficiently analyze and structure the ubiquitous flood of data allows us...05.03.2014 | Read more
Exams are approaching, and stress is increasing. Now it’s just about memorizing material – things that will almost entirely be forgotten again shortly afterwards. But does it have to be this way? The answer is no! Fraunhofer IDMT has developed ”askMe!”, a system for personalized computer based assessment of one’s learning results. The system will now be presented at the CeBIT, taking place March 10 - 14 in Hanover.
”askMe!” allows students to apply the theoretical knowledge they have acquired to practical situations, and to transfer this knowledge to other areas of...03.03.2014 | Read more
At the upcoming CeBIT in Hannover (10.-14.3.2014) the German Software-Cluster shows its latest research results and start-ups from the cluster region spanning the German states of Baden-Württemberg, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. The connecting theme of the exhibits is making business processes faster and more dynamic, e.g. in the retail, mobility or agriculture sector.
Processes are at the core of the economy. The German Software-Cluster, distinguished in the leading-edge cluster competition of the German government,...28.02.2014 | Read more
An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
