"Virtual Environments for Testing of Automated Vehicles": This central idea of the 3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation on 9 November 2017 in Braunschweig says it all. For the third time, decision-makers and experts from the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, research and IT will be discussing topics related to driving simulation. This year's focus will be on the future challenges in the area of virtual development, testing and validation of systems for autonomous vehicles. The 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting and a visit to the driving simulator of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) will take place on 8 November 2017 in the run-up to the symposium.
Increasing demands and growing cost pressure in the automotive industry make it increasingly necessary to transfer test scenarios with multiple variants to a virtual world. Driving simulators offer a wide range of solutions, which can be used by technology providers and be developed for OEMs and suppliers. Due to the growing complexity of these systems and a heterogeneous hardware and software landscape, all too often this potential can only be exploited insufficiently.
The aim of the event jointly organized by the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (asc(s), the DLR and the Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) Fellbach is to offer representatives from science and industry better access to the topic of driving simulation.
To this end, the symposium's presentations will deal with the areas of standardization, infrastructure and modeling of the environment as well as dynamic modeling / simulation. In the accompanying exhibition, visitors will also be given the opportunity to view and test current technologies and components of driving simulation.
The symposium will be accompanied by a series of other events for experts in driving simulation: At the 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting on 8 November, the status quo of the project will be presented as well as some use cases. Afterwards, participants will be able to exchange views with their peers during a guided tour of the DLR simulator and a get-together.

Company profile VDC:
The Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) is Germany's leading network for Virtual Engineering and Virtual Reality. Since 2002 the VDC creates synergies between the network members and supports technology transfer. More than 100 members and partners - among them research institutions, technology suppliers, service providers, users and multipliers - are cooperating in the topics of simulation, visualisation, product lifecycle management (PLM), computer aided engineering (CAE) and virtual reality (VR) along the entire virtual engineering value chain. Hence the cluster members benefit from a higher innovation activity and productivity due to information and cost advantages compared to companies outside the network. These competitive advantages are a result of transparent competences, raised information flow and easier business contacts. The services of the VDC include information search and processing, marketing and dissemination, match making on national and international level, - technology transfer and funding management. The VDC organizes each year many workshops, match making events and congresses like the Virtual Efficiency Congress (VEC, www.virtual-efficiency.de).

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
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...
