Conference for Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAV) first time in Germany


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.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
