Automated vehicles are the prominent subject of current public debate: Fierce competition unfolds between companies and states regarding the market introduction of driving automation while first incidents document the inability of current technology to master complex situations. The International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) has been exploring the technological foundations of connected, automated and electrified vehicles for many years.
The current edition, taking place on 22 and 23 September in Brussels, will again embrace key challenges regarding the development of the automobile of the future: How can we validate automated vehicles? How is secure communication between vehicles possible? What is an efficient electric powertrain? How can we facilitate cross-sectorial cooperation in order to roll-out driving automation? Which synergies are feasible between electrified and automated driving?
The 20. International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2016) has the motto “Smart Systems for the Automobile of the Future”, and will again tackle the imminent reshaping of the automobile and its ecosystem imposed by connectivity, automation and electrification.
The conference programme comprises several keynote lectures on each of these subtopics, a round table discussion on the necessity of cross-sectorial cooperation and innovation for an efficient proliferation of automated and connected driving, as well as an invited session on urban light electric vehicles as platforms for novel mobility services for smart cities.
The programme also features more than 20 scientific talks and posters on automated driving functions, automotive sensors, connectivity, navigation and electrified powertrains.
“The interplay of electrification, connectivity and automation yields important synergies that will define the automobile of the future” says Dr. Gereon Meyer, chairman of AMAA 2016.
AMAA 2016 is jointly organized by VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH and the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration (EPoSS). It will take place at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union in Brussels.
As a programme managing body for public R&D funding as well as a consultant to the industry, VDI/VDE-IT has been concerned with automotive key technologies for many years. The company analyses and assesses international markets and technology developments and provides advice to policymakers and the economy, e.g. by compiling technology roadmaps.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
