The Software-Cluster at CeBIT 2014: Processes for a Faster and More Dynamic Economy

28.02.2014

At the upcoming CeBIT in Hannover (10.-14.3.2014) the German Software-Cluster shows its latest research results and start-ups from the cluster region spanning the German states of Baden-Württemberg, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. The connecting theme of the exhibits is making business processes faster and more dynamic, e.g. in the retail, mobility or agriculture sector.

Processes are at the core of the economy. The German Software-Cluster, distinguished in the leading-edge cluster competition of the German government, researches and develops software solutions that make processes controllable even across company borders and under rapidly changing conditions while allowing flexible combination at the same time. The partners of the Software-Cluster show the following solutions at CeBIT 2014:

Emergent Logistics – The Fastest Way to Bring Software Ideas to the Cloud

The principles of emergent software enable tools that bring innovative software ideas faster to the cloud. This way, software companies are able to react more quickly to market trends. The demonstrator shows an application example of how logistical steps within goods receiving departments can be simplified and accelerated through integration of cloud services.

Multimodal Coordination of Production Processes in Agriculture

Modern harvesting processes can increasingly be compared to industrial manufacturing processes. At CeBIT the Software-Cluster partners demonstrate how IT-based tools can support farmers to efficiently coordinate a large number of agricultural machines and employees via mobile devices as well as adapt the whole harvesting process to sudden external disruptions (e.g. weather).

Augmented Reality Maintenance Information System

At CeBIT a comprehensive Augmented Reality Maintenance Information System will be demonstrated. Using a real John Deere tractor as an application case, the systems gives precise and clear instructions for the technical details of basic maintenance tasks and provides support for the replacement of defective consumables or the maintenance of lubrication parts.

white|c – We Make the World around You Digitally Useable

The DFKI spin-off company white|c shows its latest innovation in 3D documentation at the Software-Cluster stand: 3D installations that are recorded with the help of 3D laser scanning in the real world and reproduced as a model. The surface of the model is equipped with special sensors, whereby a touch interaction is allowed with the object, which can be useful for museum educational services.
More information: http://www.white-c.com

Apart from these exhibits that are on display at the Software-Cluster stand, results from Software-Cluster projects are also shown at other stands at CeBIT 2014:

Vertical Integration of Production Processes: Industry 4.0 hands-on (Hall 5, Stand E18)

The demonstrator shown at the CeBITstand of proALPHA Software AG in Hall 9, Stand E18 gives an idea of the principle of Industry 4.0: Using a production module with multiple process units visitors can experience how the intelligent embedded production systems vertically linked to the business processes in the company's ERP system.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
