To allow web applications run on four screens, the webinos project consortium creates a full open source code base. The tagerted technology will allow different devices and applications to work together, securely, seamlessly and interoperably. Most recentely, the consortium has summarized the first research results in four reports which are now available for download at www.webinos.org.
The Future is Now: webinos Aims to Deliver Seamless, Secure Exchange of Data Across Multiple Platforms
Applications dominate today’s smartphone market. In the future, internet-capable televisions, tablet and desktop PCs, and cars will all run apps, which can, for example, help plan and book a ski trip ( video: www.webinos.org ) .
To allow web applications run on four screens, the webinos project consortium creates a full open source code base. The tagerted technology will allow different devices and applications to work together, securely, seamlessly and interoperably. Most recentely, the consortium has summarized the first research results in four reports covering use cases, security, technical requirments and industry landscape. The reports are now available for download at www.webinos.org http://www.webinos.org .
The webinos project brings together major, international companies and research institutions including Fraunhofer FOKUS, Technische Universität München, Oxford University with electronics companies such as Sony Ericsson and Samsung, carmaker BMW, the standardization body W3C and telecommunication operators like Deutsche Telekom. webinos is funded by a ten million Euro grant from the European Union.
“The result of the webinos project is an open source platform that allows the safe exchange of data services across multiple devices,” explains Dr Stephan Steglich, consortium leader at Fraunhofer FOKUS. The tools provided through the platform will enable software designers from any industry to create web applications and services that can be used and shared over a broad spectrum of converged and connected devices – regardless of their respective hardware specifications and operating systems.
“Small and medium-sized enterprises would also benefit from an uncomplicated and low-cost ‘foot in the door’ of the world of apps,” Dr Steglich adds. “They do not need to go to the expense of purchasing or developing the software themselves if they want to tailor services to a wide variety of terminals.”A Secure Web Experience
The platform developed within webinos is still in the design phase, with the first prototypes expected to be completed end of 2011. The webinos consortium welcomes input into the development of the platform. If you are interested in providing expertise in the form of use-cases and requirements or to participate in the specification process and open source development, contact the developers at firstname.lastname@example.org.Boiler Plate

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...
