Safe, sustainable and networked – the car of the future
ICT, components and smart systems are essential for a multitude of recent innovations, both inside the vehicle and at its interface to the networks of data and energy.
Novel trends and developments with high innovation potential will be discussed at the 16th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications - AMAA 2012 - on 30/31 May 2012 in Berlin.
The ambitious objectives of future road mobility, i.e. fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and zero accidents, imply a paradigm shift in the concept of the car regarding its architecture, materials, and propulsion technology, and require an intelligent integration into the systems of transportation and power.
Therefore, the AMAA conference 2012 will focus on the topic “Smart Systems for Safe, Sustainable and Networked Vehicles”.
Experts from industry and academia are invited to submit proposals for papers addressing current research, developments and innovations in the field of ICT, components and systems and other key enabling technologies leading to the automobile and road transport of the future.
Discussions at the conference will focus on a wide range of application areas: Power Train & Vehicle Efficiency, Electrification, Safety & Driver Assistance, Networked Vehicles and Components & Systems.
Abstracts of papers to be presented at the AMAA 2012 should be submitted before 31 January 2012 to the Chairman of the AMAA, Dr. Gereon Meyer of VDI/VDE-IT.

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...
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...
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...
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...
'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...
