The Car of the Future: A Merger of Electric, Assisted and Connected Driving

19.04.2012
The results of most recent industrial and academic research and development on smart systems for the car of the future will be presented at the 16th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2012) on 30 and 31 May 2012 in Berlin at Harnack-Haus, Germany.
Smart systems for safe, sustainable and networked vehicles to be introduced at AMAA 2012

Information and communication technologies, smart components and systems have been essential for a multitude of recent innovations in the automobile, and are expected to be key for tackling the challenges ahead, both inside the vehicle and at its interfaces for the exchange of data and power with the outside world. The results of most recent industrial and academic research and development on smart systems for the car of the future will be presented at the 16th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2012) on 30 and 31 May 2012 in Berlin at Harnack-Haus, Germany.

The keynote speakers at the AMAA 2012 will address three major innovations paths: electric propulsion and the role of electronics (Patrick Bastard, Vice President Renault), wireless charging (Eric Giler, CEO WiTricity), and the challenges of automated driving (Reiner Hoeger, Director Continental). Furthermore, the related funding programmes at European level will be presented (Kahlil Rouhana, Director European Commission).

The conference programme comprises more than 40 talks and posters by leading engineers and renowned researchers dealing with electric vehicles, safety and driver assistance, simulation and testing, in-vehicle networks and architectures, cooperative driving and navigation as well as with the enabling components and systems. A special session will be held on the results of the Mini-Faros projects which aims at the development of a low- cost miniature laser scanner, and an update will be given on the funding opportunities and current projects of the European Green Cars Initiative.

The conference programme can be found at www.amaa.de/agenda.

The most excellent papers have been selected by the members of an international steering committee for publication in the conference book which is edited by AMAA chairman Gereon Meyer and will be published worldwide by Springer the day before the conference.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
