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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
