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.

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...
Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.
Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
