Sustainable Energy Technologies and Innovative Mobility

09.04.2015

At the Hannover Trade Fair 2015 the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg shows its rich scientific landscape on a combined stand. Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is among the presenters with the topics of mechatronics, electro-mobility and energy. In Hall 2 Stand A18, from 13th – 17th April, exciting exhibits await interested visitors.

As an international leader, the Hannover Trade Fair 2015 brings together a wide spectrum of key technologies in the industry. It is the place to be seen, in which companies show their innovations and build bridges between related technologies.

Under the key theme “Integrated Industry – Join the Network!” the challenges facing industry 4.0 are in focus this year. From machine-to-machine-communication via data security to the business models of the future: Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is also using Hannover Trade Fair to exchange ideas with representatives from the industry and to present its research findings.

At the exhibition stand different exhibits are shown, among them an electric children’s sit-on car with a solar panel. To create it, a standard vehicle was newly equipped – with an electric motor, battery pack and motor and charge controller.

Thus, electro-mobility can be experienced in a playful way: the little car includes an accelerator pedal and brakes as well as special features such as automatic lighting, horn and indicators, and even safety functions and reversing are possible.

Innovative concepts for electrical charging are also a topic in Hannover. Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is presenting wireless energy transfer. It demonstrates, on the one hand, direct current charging from electrically driven vehicles, and on the other, the transfer and storage of energy produced from regenerative sources.

This technology is not only groundbreaking in the area of electro-mobility; its use is also possible without additional transfer losses. Any fears concerning electric smog can also be dissipated.

Esslingen University of Applied Sciences also presents decentralised energy storage and energy management with its latent heat reservoir: a demonstration model was specially developed for the trade fair to show how thermal energy can be stored and discharged at any time by changing the aggregate state. Here, the principle “Power to Heat” – that is, the new approach for changing electrical energy into heat is in focus.

“We are not carrying out research in an ivory tower”, explains Prof. Dr. Ulrich Nepustil from the Faculty of Engineering Management. Temporary excesses in electricity production provide special challenges for the future – and thereby an important field of research for Esslingen University of Applied Sciences.

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...

Im Focus: Small collisions make big impact on Mercury's thin atmosphere

Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
