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:
Stuttgart ServicesDevelopment 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).

Satellites in near-Earth orbit are at risk due to the steady increase in space debris. But their mission in the areas of telecommunications, navigation or weather forecasts is essential for society. Fraunhofer FHR therefore develops radar-based systems which allow the detection, tracking and cataloging of even the smallest particles of debris. Satellite operators who have access to our data are in a better position to plan evasive maneuvers and prevent destructive collisions. From April, 25-29 2018, Fraunhofer FHR and its partners will exhibit the complementary radar systems TIRA and GESTRA as well as the latest radar techniques for space observation across three stands at the ILA Berlin.
The "traffic situation" in space is very tense: the Earth is currently being orbited not only by countless satellites but also by a large volume of space...
An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.
The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...
In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.
Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...
