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)

Many joining and cutting processes are possible only with lasers. New technologies make it possible to manufacture metal components with hollow structures that are significantly lighter and yet just as stable as solid components. In addition, lasers can be used to combine various lightweight construction materials and steels with each other. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen is presenting a range of such solutions at the LASER World of Photonics trade fair from June 22 to 25, 2015 in Munich, Germany, (Hall A3, Stand 121).
Lightweight construction materials are popular: aluminum is used in the bodywork of cars, for example, and aircraft fuselages already consist in large part of...
Using ultrashort laser pulses, scientists in Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have demonstrated the emission of extreme ultraviolet radiation from thin dielectric films and have investigated the underlying mechanisms.
In 1961, only shortly after the invention of the first laser, scientists exposed silicon dioxide crystals (also known as quartz) to an intense ruby laser to...
The only professorship in Germany to date, one master's programme, one laboratory with worldwide unique equipment and the corresponding research results: The University of Würzburg is leading in the field of biofabrication.
Paul Dalton is presently the only professor of biofabrication in Germany. About a year ago, the Australian researcher relocated to the Würzburg department for...
Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.
Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...
