Are you exceptionally creative when it comes to technology? Or do you know a woman that is? Britain’s top creative women will be celebrated at the upcoming 7th Annual British Female Inventors and Innovators Awards Ceremony in London on 21 February 2006.
There is a special award category aimed at Information Technology, Electronics and Communication (ITEC). This category was set up by the European funded project Equalitec - Advancing women in ITEC and aims to promote innovative solutions developed by women such as improvements in the ways in which data can be collected, managed, analysed and presented as part of work and decision-making.
Women have made a significant creative contribution to ITEC, which has not always been given the recognition it deserves. Their ideas and experience can bring new perspective on the directions in which ITEC technologies can advance and how they can be used. Elizabeth Pollitzer, Director of the Equalitec Project said “we aim to encourage women to apply their innovative and inventive capabilities in ITEC and related areas, and to celebrate their contributions by creating this new ITEC Award. I would urge as many women as possible to enter, and gain recognition for the excellent work they do”.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
