Showcase for electromobility

15.04.2013
Launch of "LivingLab BWe mobil" electromobility showcase initiative

The Baden-Württemberg electromobility showcase initiative "LivingLab BWe mobil" kicked off in mid-March this year. With the goal of finding solutions for mobility in the future, Fraunhofer IAO is working on some ten projects in collaboration with its partner IAT at the University of Stuttgart and the Fraunhofer application center KEIM.

Pioneers are needed to achieve the successful implementation of sustainable mobility in Germany. Baden-Württemberg has risen to this challenge by launching the showcase initiative "LivingLab BWe mobil", which has been running in Baden-Württemberg since mid-March. The initiative involves more than 100 partners from industry, the scientific community and the public sector who are collaborating on some 40 different projects to study electromobility in practice.

With over 30 researchers in its in-house Mobility Innovation Lab engaged in finding ways of taking electromobility to the next level, Fraunhofer IAO is contributing its expertise and infrastructure to various showcase projects in the field of electromobility:

Charging infrastructure for Stuttgart and the surrounding region
Solutions for e-car sharing in urban areas, development of business models for public charging infrastructure | Partners: EnBW, Daimler AG, city of Stuttgart, car2go
charge@work
Integrated energy management of electric vehicle fleets using a micro smart grid demonstrator including solar power, wind power, battery buffer systems, fuel cells with electrolyzers and 30 charge spots (AC and DC) | Partner: Daimler AG
Integrated fleet charging
Integrated fleet planning and charge management system for the vehicle fleet of the Land of Baden-Württemberg | Partners: EnBW, Swarco, Gigatronik, EnSoC, PBW
Urban logistics for commercial traffic
Logistics concepts for the city | Partners: DHL, DPD and UPS; the cities of Karlsruhe, Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart; Daimler AG

Stuttgart Services

Development of a mobility card for Stuttgart which entitles customers to use the full range of mobility services and other municipal facilities. Modeled on the Octopus Card in Hong Kong. Partners: SSB, VVS and many more.

Key tasks include the development of business models for charging infrastructure, the establishment of a micro smart grid, the integration of fleet and charge management solutions, city logistics and intermodal mobility solutions. In addition to the projects featured in the LivingLab BWe mobil showcase initiative, Fraunhofer IAO also carries out research as one of 80 partners integrated in the South-West Electromobility Cluster of Excellence, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Short videos presenting the showcase projects are available on the Internet at http://vimeo.com/channels/livinglabbwemobil/videos The PDF document http://www.e-mobilbw.de/Resources/LivingLab_Projektuebersicht_130312.pdf contains an overview of the projects including brief summaries and information on the participating partners.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
