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.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
