Intelligent cars made possible by modern navigation and communication technologies are a popular topic with automotive manufacturers and customers alike. Automated parking functions and systems that warn drivers of braking vehicles and sharp curves are just the beginning.
Following its major success in 2011, ITRI is offering a prototyping prize in the field of connected vehicles for the second time in this year's ESNC. The institute's stated objective - "Connect Autos Tightly to ICT from V2X" - reflects its search for innovative solutions that combine modern satellite navigation and smart vehicle communication technologies.
ITRI will invite eight finalists to demonstrate their prototypes at its research campus in Taiwan and take advantage of the extensive testing facilities available there. ITRI and its more than 5,800 employees constitute Taiwan's leading research institute for technological progress.
Its campus is based on a leading worldwide network for information and communication technology (ICT) - which includes the European Chamber of Commerce in Taipei, the Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers Association (TEEMA), and various national universities - also supporting ITRI's sponsorship of the ESNC prototyping prize. In addition, the institute works closely with renowned partners such as the Fraunhofer Institutes, Siemens, Volkswagen, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Intel - to name just a few.
As an incubation centre for Taiwan's industry, ITRI has also produced more than 162 spinoff companies. The prototyping prize winner and finalists will receive cash prizes ranging from EUR 1,000 to EUR 10,000.DLR's "Cooperative Road Damage Evasion Application" wins 2011 prize
Ideas for this year's ITRI prototype prize can be submitted until 30 June 2012 at www.galileo-masters.eu.About the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI)

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
