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.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
