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:

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...
Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.
Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
