At the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute's wireless and video coding experts present their latest developments. Visit us at Fraunhofer Booth 7G31 in Hall 7 during February 27 and March 2.
You find the following highlights at our booth 7G31:
Tile Based DASH Streaming for Virtual Reality with HEVC – Enabler for high quality 360 degree Video
Only high resolution content can give a sense of immersion in VR video applications, but the large amount of data poses a challenge to common transport systems and decoders.
Tile based DASH streaming with lightweight HEVC Tile Aggregation allows to easily adapt the 360 degree video data stream to the current user viewport.
This technology allows reducing throughput and decoder requirements significantly without complex transcoding.
5G: mobile networks of the next Generation
The fifth-generation mobile network assumes a key position in the communication landscape of the future. Autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, and the tactile Internet for wireless object control in real time require a quantum leap in efficiency, the scope of performance and the availability of mobile communication networks.
The new 5G wireless communication technology will be the basis for the digital infrastructure of the future. The industry plans to deploy the first 5G-capable networks starting in 2020. In a consortium with manufacturers, network operators, users and research institutions Fraunhofer HHI will realize prototypes of the communication technology infrastructure for 5G early on, allowing it to be experienced in the 5G testbed of Berlin.
At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Fraunhofer HHI presents the following 5G technologies:
- Active antenna arrays for massive MIMO signal processing
- Quadriga: 3D/4D quasi-deterministic channel mode
- Millimeter wave technology

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
