Automated vehicles are the prominent subject of current public debate: Fierce competition unfolds between companies and states regarding the market introduction of driving automation while first incidents document the inability of current technology to master complex situations. The International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) has been exploring the technological foundations of connected, automated and electrified vehicles for many years.
The current edition, taking place on 22 and 23 September in Brussels, will again embrace key challenges regarding the development of the automobile of the future: How can we validate automated vehicles? How is secure communication between vehicles possible? What is an efficient electric powertrain? How can we facilitate cross-sectorial cooperation in order to roll-out driving automation? Which synergies are feasible between electrified and automated driving?
The 20. International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2016) has the motto “Smart Systems for the Automobile of the Future”, and will again tackle the imminent reshaping of the automobile and its ecosystem imposed by connectivity, automation and electrification.
The conference programme comprises several keynote lectures on each of these subtopics, a round table discussion on the necessity of cross-sectorial cooperation and innovation for an efficient proliferation of automated and connected driving, as well as an invited session on urban light electric vehicles as platforms for novel mobility services for smart cities.
The programme also features more than 20 scientific talks and posters on automated driving functions, automotive sensors, connectivity, navigation and electrified powertrains.
“The interplay of electrification, connectivity and automation yields important synergies that will define the automobile of the future” says Dr. Gereon Meyer, chairman of AMAA 2016.
AMAA 2016 is jointly organized by VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH and the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration (EPoSS). It will take place at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union in Brussels.
As a programme managing body for public R&D funding as well as a consultant to the industry, VDI/VDE-IT has been concerned with automotive key technologies for many years. The company analyses and assesses international markets and technology developments and provides advice to policymakers and the economy, e.g. by compiling technology roadmaps.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
