TRACY-Project in Brussels

06.09.2012
Society is increasingly ageing, in light of this what steps are being taken to organize mobility for the elderly?

The Transport and Spatial Planning Institute of the University of Applied Sciences in Erfurt would like to invite participants to the 1st international conference of the EU research project TRACY (Transport needs for an ageing society), which will take place at November 14th 2012 in Brussels.

TRACY is funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme and is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Matthias Gather. The project’s main aim is to develop an action plan that can help tackle the challenges of providing transport in an ageing society.

The researchers have analysed available national sources from each of the 29 European contries and undertaken interviews with some countries to discuss the literature search. The state of the analyses in EU27 and international sectors will be presented and discussed during the conference.

The results and the output of the conference are the preparatory steps for the development of an action plan including guidelines and recommendations for specific research topics and future transport strategies. Alongside the european perspective, experiences from Japan and Australia will be presented.

Under the patronage of Dr. Dieter-L. Koch (Member of the European Parliament) the conference will bring together members of the European Parliament, representatives of Governmental Organisations from about 20 member states, researchers from European, Australian and Japanese universities, representatives of European institutions and business organisations as well as NGOs.

The conference is being hosted by the committee of regions, Rue Belliard 101, 1040 Brussels. The working language of the conference is english. The conference day on 14 November is free and open to non–members especially represantives from politics and european institutions with an confirmed registration.

We would also like to invite interested institutions, associations and NGOs to present relevant projects and results relating to demographic chance and mobility in the exhibition area.

The second day of the conference on November, 15th, 2012 is aimed to invited experts and organisations to exchange the topic in detail.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
