The Forum for Applied Satellite Navigation and Mobile IT Baden-Württemberg e. V. (Forum SatNav MIT BW) is participating in the European Satellite Navigation Competition for the first time this year by sponsoring a special topic prize for security-relevant solutions in the transport and logistics sector.
It seeks market-ready submissions from companies, universities, and research institutes that create value in logistics by means of applications in satellite navigation and mobile IT. Doing so requires both innovations and improvements to existing solutions.
Oberpfaffenhofen, July 9, 2009: With its participation in the European Satellite Navigation Competition, Forum SatNav MIT BW is underscoring its goal of becoming one of the top addresses in satellite navigation and mobile IT. Companies and research institutes in Baden-Württemberg are already producing numerous innovations and developments in these two fields.
"In the 2008 iteration of the European Satellite Navigation Competition, Baden-Württemberg trailed only Taiwan in number of submissions. This shows how well positioned southwest Germany is in satellite navigation and mobile IT. We're also anticipating plenty of contributions this year for the special topic prize on offer from Forum SatNav MIT BW. Satellite navigation is expected to lead to groundbreaking changes in logistics," confirms Dr Rolf-Jürgen Ahlers of Forum SatNav MIT BW. This opinion is shared by Klaus Haasis, managing director of MFG Baden-Württemberg, which is the German state's innovation agency for IT and media and sponsorship partner for the special topic prize.
The winner will be featured in an exhibition space at POSITIONALE - the international trade fair for satellite positioning, navigation, and telematics - in Stuttgart, Germany, in May 2010. Meanwhile, the first and second runners-up will be presented at an event in Baden-Württemberg. Furthermore, the award winning participants will receive support with the commercialisation of their application ideas through international partners as well as valuable contacts and collaborative opportunities via the strong industrial network of SatNav MIT BW.Additional information on the SatNav MIT BW special prize and the database for registering competition entries are available at the following link:

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
