Usable worldwide, this GSM/GPRS solution consists of the Ay terminal as the basis communication device and AyPilot.com portal, a web interface which can be used for centralized security and monitoring applications as well as for configuring and monitoring the basis devices. Based on Java technology, the system is suitable both for mobile applications in the private sphere and for companies who want to protect their employees and monitor objects.
Three sensors are integrated in the Ay device for detecting temperature, volume and motion. If a predefined sensor threshold is exceeded, an alert is triggered via the GSM/GPRS mobile radio network. The system settings can be entered and adjusted remotely via the web interface. In the same way, the measured values of the sensors can be read, displayed, analyzed and integrated into customer specific applications. The Ay device is the same size as a stack of playing cards and is fitted with four touch-sensitive function keys, a large display which can be used as a button and a loudspeaker which functions as a siren as well. The user only has to press the button to trigger emergency calls in the form of a telephone call or an SMS. Another important feature is the two-way communication function that can be used for telephone calls or sending and receiving SMS messages. The device functions can be set as required via the AyPilot.com web interface. The only requirement is access to the Internet. As an alternative, the configuration can be done by the user on the device itself using the function keys and the display to enter settings directly. For professional applications, the device is preferably configured and remotely controlled from a central location, so that configuration by the user is not necessary.
For customized solutions, the modular-design device can be easily supplemented with AySnapOn expansion modules and programmed by means of Java technology. A GPS module, for example, can be used for locating people and objects and a camera can be added for extending the security functions. The web interface, AyPilot.com, can easily be adapted to the requirements of companies that themselves have wireless communication components and are looking for a server solution for their own individual applications.
The list of potential AySystem applications is almost endless. Thanks to the intuitive, easy-to-use display and the function keys, the Ay user can trigger special actions via mobile radio quickly and easily. There are applications suitable for children and people with infirmities, as well as for security guards and field personnel. In addition, the three integrated sensors for temperature, volume and movement enable a wide range of uses, from individual object monitoring to the management of entire vehicle fleets. Thanks to its open interfaces, the AySystem accelerates time-to-market and requires only low initial investment overhead for the mobile radio operator or business customer. Moreover, the system is scalable both in terms of the hardware, due to the snap-on concept, and as regards software in the form of a Java client-server solution. It can grow as requirements increase.

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...

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...
