1st International THESEUS Symposium

From 29-30 June 2009 the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology will host the 1st International THESEUS Symposium for its flagshipprogram "THESEUS".

The International THESEUS Symposium aims at establishing collaborations and cross-fertilizations between projects on the Internet of the Future.

A number of countries have set up research programs and projects with different intentions based on different visions of what the Internet of the Future could and should be: Some of the research activities focus on the development of technologies and new standards. Others are more concerned with applications and future use of the Internet, or they look at its commercial exploitation. While some programs and projects seem to be complementary in what they do, others seem to overlap.

THESEUS is one of these projects conducted as a joint research project that involves major industries and academic institutions. The European Community funds quite a number of projects and programs with the aim to foster the transnational collaboration on the development of the Internet of the Future. Major initiatives have also been set up in Japan, Australia and on the American continent. We would like to share our vision of the Future Internet as an "Internet of Services" with these initiatives and would like to exchange information about these visions, approaches and technologies for a mutual benefit. The THESEUS Symposium will hopefully also be the take-off point for an International Cooperation Action that will be supported financially later on.

The program falls into two parts:

- In an Executive Session during the first day the program will focus on strategies for developing future technologies and applications for the Internet.

- In a Technology Session during the second day the program will focus on technology hot spots in the development of the Internet of the Future.

The program is meant to create a balance between views in different parts of the world as well as between research and industrial developments, and it will show how different governmental authorities take part in these developments with their funding strategies.

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
