Cars, ships, planes, drones or rockets – all types of vehicles that move themselves take centre stage at the Conference for Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAV) 2016 in Leipzig.
For engineers and computer scientists, such vehicles are no longer a vision but a reality that has not yet prevailed. “To the disadvantage for many people”, Professor Paul Plöger is convinced, “a lot of accidents could have been avoided and persons would not have been injured.”
Plöger is a professor for Autonomous Systems in the Department of Computer Science at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (H-BRS).
Together with his collegues Paul Rojas of the Freie Universität Berlin und Giuseppe Oriolo of the University of Rome, Plöger is a member of this year’s IAV International Program Committee.
The conference will take place from 29 June to 1 July 2016 at Leipziger Messe. International experts for autonomous vehicles will meet at the event that has been taking place every three years since 1993, and will now to take place for the first time in Germany.
Up to 200 participants from all over the world are expected to attend and where around 100 scientific talks will be given. The submissions to the Call of Papers show a wide variety on issues, serving engineers, researchers and young scientists.
Taking place in parallel to the IAV 2016 is the 20th World RoboCup Championship. The participants of both events will work on topics such as navigation and guidance, sensing and perception, communication, cooperation and networking. Professor Plöger’s track will cover the issues Fault Detection and Diagnosis.

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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
