"Virtual Environments for Testing of Automated Vehicles": This central idea of the 3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation on 9 November 2017 in Braunschweig says it all. For the third time, decision-makers and experts from the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, research and IT will be discussing topics related to driving simulation. This year's focus will be on the future challenges in the area of virtual development, testing and validation of systems for autonomous vehicles. The 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting and a visit to the driving simulator of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) will take place on 8 November 2017 in the run-up to the symposium.
Increasing demands and growing cost pressure in the automotive industry make it increasingly necessary to transfer test scenarios with multiple variants to a virtual world. Driving simulators offer a wide range of solutions, which can be used by technology providers and be developed for OEMs and suppliers. Due to the growing complexity of these systems and a heterogeneous hardware and software landscape, all too often this potential can only be exploited insufficiently.
The aim of the event jointly organized by the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (asc(s), the DLR and the Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) Fellbach is to offer representatives from science and industry better access to the topic of driving simulation.
To this end, the symposium's presentations will deal with the areas of standardization, infrastructure and modeling of the environment as well as dynamic modeling / simulation. In the accompanying exhibition, visitors will also be given the opportunity to view and test current technologies and components of driving simulation.
The symposium will be accompanied by a series of other events for experts in driving simulation: At the 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting on 8 November, the status quo of the project will be presented as well as some use cases. Afterwards, participants will be able to exchange views with their peers during a guided tour of the DLR simulator and a get-together.

Company profile VDC:
The Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) is Germany's leading network for Virtual Engineering and Virtual Reality. Since 2002 the VDC creates synergies between the network members and supports technology transfer. More than 100 members and partners - among them research institutions, technology suppliers, service providers, users and multipliers - are cooperating in the topics of simulation, visualisation, product lifecycle management (PLM), computer aided engineering (CAE) and virtual reality (VR) along the entire virtual engineering value chain. Hence the cluster members benefit from a higher innovation activity and productivity due to information and cost advantages compared to companies outside the network. These competitive advantages are a result of transparent competences, raised information flow and easier business contacts. The services of the VDC include information search and processing, marketing and dissemination, match making on national and international level, - technology transfer and funding management. The VDC organizes each year many workshops, match making events and congresses like the Virtual Efficiency Congress (VEC, www.virtual-efficiency.de).

An international team of scientists, including three researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has shed new light on one of the central mysteries of solar physics: how energy from the Sun is transferred to the star's upper atmosphere, heating it to 1 million degrees Fahrenheit and higher in some regions, temperatures that are vastly hotter than the Sun's surface.
With new images from NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the researchers have revealed in groundbreaking, granular detail what appears to be a likely...

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are valuable for a wide variety of applications. Made of graphene sheets rolled into tubes 10,000 times smaller than a human hair, CNTs have an exceptional strength-to-mass ratio and excellent thermal and electrical properties. These features make them ideal for a range of applications, including supercapacitors, interconnects, adhesives, particle trapping and structural color.
New research reveals even more potential for CNTs: as a coating, they can both repel and hold water in place, a useful property for applications like printing,...
If you've ever tried to put several really strong, small cube magnets right next to each other on a magnetic board, you'll know that you just can't do it. What happens is that the magnets always arrange themselves in a column sticking out vertically from the magnetic board. Moreover, it's almost impossible to join several rows of these magnets together to form a flat surface. That's because magnets are dipolar. Equal poles repel each other, with the north pole of one magnet always attaching itself to the south pole of another and vice versa. This explains why they form a column with all the magnets aligned the same way.
Now, scientists at ETH Zurich have managed to create magnetic building blocks in the shape of cubes that - for the first time ever - can be joined together to...
