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: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
