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.contact:

So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...
A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.
Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...
A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
