Electro-mobility is picking up speed - not only the driving range is increasing but also the acceptance by the population. Following the launch of the first electric and hybrid vehicles it is now important to gather practical experience to adjust new developments.
Will energy efficiency targets be met? Will technological approaches prove their efficiency in the real world? What system will carry the day? Comprehensive research is undertaken to provide answers for many questions as yet unresolved. OEMs, suppliers and research institutions are working full steam ahead to develop new mobility concepts for the future.
Energy storage systems, power electronics and energy management are of vital importance for hybrid and electric powertrain concepts. Many existing approaches are being challenged; solutions that have proved their efficiency will see the light of the real world. It's all a matter of perspective. In order to achieve the global CO2 emission reduction targets we do not only need more all-electric and hybrid vehicles but also more plug-in hybrids and micro-hybrids with 48V on-board electrical systems.
Thanks to their larger production numbers enhanced micro hybrids will make an important contribution to CO2 reductions in the short term. Only in the longer distant future, with the availability of more efficient energy storage systems, will all-electric vehicles appear in greater numbers. However, new drive system concepts and components are being developed now. This is the time for OEMs and suppliers to position themselves in an exciting market.
With EEHE, the conference on Electric & Electronic Systems in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management, Haus der Technik provides an opportunity for developers, users and researchers to speak with their peers and network effectively. We have expanded the programme to cover aspects of energy management and on-board power supply, electric and electronic systems in hybrid and electric vehicles and also engine start/stop systems. This is the place to meet all the important international players in the industry. Having screened a great number of submissions following the Call for Paper, the programme committee has put together an interesting array of conference papers, poster presentations and exhibition of vehicles.
The topics that will take centre state at our conference are: electric and electronic systems as well as E/E architectures for hybrid, plug-in-hybrid and electric vehicles, electric charging, electric energy management, power electronics, low-volt storage systems and battery management for electric energy storage systems, market development, highly-automated driving and model-based development.
The conference exhibition is the platform for well-known OEMs to present their electric and hybrid vehicles and to provide test vehicles for driving events.

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...
A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...
In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.
These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...
Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.
For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...
It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.
Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
