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:

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
