Road into laboratory: Users discuss biaxial fatigue-testing for car and truck wheel

In the past, service life tests for vehicles or individual components required test drives on the road lasting several days. Today, thanks to cutting-edge testing facilities, a few hours in the laboratory is enough. The Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF has specialized in recent years in the area of wheel testing and approval. Thanks to its diverse development and testing activities the institute has carved out a position for itself as a technology leader. The UC 13, Users Conference on Biaxial Fatigue Testing for Wheels and Wheel Hubs held on November 8 provided an opportunity to find out more about the latest developments in this area of Technology.

The wheel-related components of the chassis, i.e. wheels, wheel hubs and wheel bearings, are safety-relevant components subject to high levels of stress. Given...

#Berlin5GWeek: The right network for Industry 4.0

Individual mass production, condition monitoring of production facilities and modular production lines are some advantages that digitalization of industry brings with it. The basis is an interconnection that is secure, robust and fast. The 5G standard, the standard that follows 4G/ LTE, will play a central role. Emphases of this year’s #Berlin5GWeek will therefore lie on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) as well as the dynamic programming of software-based 5G infrastructures. From the 6th to the 10th of November, international experts from science, industry and politics will discuss the basic technological requirements of the future network and possible application scenarios.

The connected factory of the future: A product blank be it for a sneaker or a car, is associated with an administrative layer. The administrative layer...

3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation

"Virtual Environments for Testing of Automated Vehicles": This central idea of the 3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation on 9 November 2017 in Braunschweig says it all. For the third time, decision-makers and experts from the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, research and IT will be discussing topics related to driving simulation. This year's focus will be on the future challenges in the area of virtual development, testing and validation of systems for autonomous vehicles. The 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting and a visit to the driving simulator of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) will take place on 8 November 2017 in the run-up to the symposium.

Increasing demands and growing cost pressure in the automotive industry make it increasingly necessary to transfer test scenarios with multiple variants to a...

ASEAN Member States discuss the future role of renewable energy

Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam: some 630 million people live in the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Between 2007 and 2015, there was enormous growth in the economy here, by 5.3 percent per year on average – and the demand for energy is also rising as a result. How to deal with this is shown by the fifth ASEAN Energy Outlook, which the Fraunhofer ISI and the ASEAN Centre for Energy presented during the Ministers and CEO dialogue at the 35th ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting in the Philippine capital of Manila at the end of September.

The 5th ASEAN Energy Outlook (AEO5), like its 2015 predecessor, was accompanied scientifically by Fraunhofer ISI and developed by the ASEAN Centre for Energy,...

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
