OEMs and suppliers are working intensively on new concepts and vehicles. The on-board electrical system will determine the viability of applications both in hybrid settings and in purely electric driving.
There are many challenges, but solutions that have proved their efficiency will see the light of the real world. It’s all a matter of perspective. Hybrid vehicles certainly act as trailblazers prior to wider scale adoption of all-electric vehicles.
Electric vehicles are still having issues with energy storage so that their wide-spread use is to be expected in the longer distant future only. However, technical solutions, just like new concepts and ideas for future powertrains, are being conceived and validated now. German OEMs and suppliers are staking out their fields in an exciting market.
With EEHE, Haus der Technik provides a brilliant opportunity for developers, users and researchers to meet. The event actually combines the three earlier conferences Electrics/Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles, Energy Management & Electrical Systems and Engine Start/Stop Systems.
The conference attendees thus have a chance to meet all important players in the industry at a single conference. Having screened a great number of submissions following the Call for Papers, the programme committee has put together an attractive array of conference papers, poster presentations and exhibition of vehicles.
The topics that will take centre stage in Bamberg on 23 and 24 April 2012 are: electric & electronic systems in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, electric charging, electric energy management, E/E architectures, power electronics, low-voltage storage systems, battery management and Model-Based System Optimization.
There will also be an exhibition to enhance the conference experience: electric and hybrid vehicles and also test vehicles of leading manufacturers will be on display as well as a lot of booths where companies show their innovations in the field of vehicle electrification.For further information and a full programme please contact Haus der Technik in Germany:

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
