SOLUTRANS 2011 powers ahead on the road to innovation

10.03.2011
SOLUTRANS, the international transport-solutions trade event, will take place from 29 November to 3 December 2011 at the Parc des Expositions EUROEXPO exhibition centre, in Lyons (France). SOLUTRANS covers all areas of haulage.

Seven major European industrial vehicle manufacturers have already registered to attend SOLUTRANS 2011 – IVECO, DAF Trucks, MAN, MERCEDES-BENZ, RENAULT TRUCKS, SCANIA and VOLVO TRUCKS – as well as key semi-trailer and trailer manufacturers, vehicle body builders and equipment manufacturers.

Exhibitors and visitors that attended SOLUTRANS 2010 indicated that the trade show was a success, despite difficult economic conditions. SOLUTRANS 2011 is back this year to assert its position as a key trade event in the international calendar (the trade show will take place every two years).

SOLUTRANS stands out as an event that unites the entire transport profession and offers relevant responses to tomorrow’s economic, technological and environmental challenges.

As a central feature in the World Road and Urban Transport Week, SOLUTRANS includes a number of key highlights.

The Industrial Bodywork Prize will be awarded at SOLUTRANS for innovations in the improvement of vehicle bodywork performance. This covers environmental and financial concerns as well as user-friendliness.

The second Truck Industry Meeting, which will take place at SOLUTRANS 2011, will provide companies with the opportunity to raise their concerns on issues affecting the trucking sector.

SOLUTRANS will also host the Truck & Bus World Forum, which will look into and analyse the challenges facing urban transport

Additionally, visitors will be able to visit the Khub, which is a conferencing and multimedia area acting as a venue for dialogue around the theme of transport and the environment.

The Trucker Show will be another highlight at SOLUTRANS 2011: within the context of the trade fair, this event is a celebration of trucks and light commercial vehicles.

Overall, SOLUTRANS has been spurred on by the economic upturn in the road and urban-transport sector. A number of innovations are expected to be unveiled at SOLUTRANS 2011.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
