CeBIT Highlights 2013: Fraunhofer IAO to display important technologies for the city of the future

20.02.2013
At this year’s CeBIT trade fair, to be held in Hannover from March 5-9, 2013, Fraunhofer IAO will be presenting pioneering concepts for the cities of the future, with exhibits on Fraunhofer’s “City of the future” initiative and “Virtual CityScapes” immersive 3D planning tool forming part of the joint Fraunhofer booth in Hall 9, Booth E08.

This year, once more over 4000 companies from 70 different countries will be showcasing some of the newest trends in information and communications technology at the CeBIT fair.

With over 300,000 visitors each year, the trade fair is the biggest international platform around for networking, presenting products and sharing knowledge on current trends in the sector. Fraunhofer IAO, too, will be taking the opportunity to present some current topics of research in Hannover from March 5-9, 2013.

Under the overall heading of “Urban Living”, scientists at the joint Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft display (Hall 9, Booth E08) will be presenting Fraunhofer’s “City of the future” initiative and “Virtual CityScapes” immersive planning tool.

The forward-looking project “The CO2-neutral, energy efficient and climate-adapted city” constitutes a key area of research within the German federal government’s High-Tech Strategy 2020. As part of this, Fraunhofer launched its city of the future initiative to coordinate research activities addressing forthcoming challenges in the cities of the future. At our interactive planning table, visitors can immerse themselves in the city of the future and learn about current projects.

How to optimally plan tomorrow’s cities today is illustrated by the second exhibit, the “Virtual CityScapes” 3D planning tool. This allows immersive, interactive planning across the different scales of urban planning, building planning and transport planning. The computer-assisted tool enables urban planners to navigate through a three-dimensional view of the city as if they were taking a walk through the streets. In this regard, virtual reality is both medium and tool. Products and processes which do not (yet) exist in real life are given form, while complex correlations can be understood intuitively. Virtual reality thereby opens up new ways to integrate and communicate on planning issues with all the city of the future’s stakeholders.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
