IAA Commercial Vehicles

From September 22 to 29, the Fraunhofer IVI and the Goldhofer AG are going to present some new developments regarding the planning and approval of of heavy and oversized haulages.  

Among these developments is the novel TruckTrix® algorithm that automatically analyzes the trafficability of entire routes, thus offering an objective basis for the approval of shipments. In addition, a joint development of the Fraunhofer IVI and a Fraunhofer spin-off enterprise will be introduced that provides TruckTrix® and other useful tools for an intuitive, reliable and fast online planning process.

Aspects such as the saving of material, flexible manufacturing and good user comfort are increasingly gaining importance in the field of railroad vehicles. The layout of railway cars can be optimized on the basis of analyses and simulations of passenger flows inside the vehicles. The mass-reduced manufacturing of side panels with individual door cut-outs can be realized by using low-distortion laser welding and fully connected integral processes. At the InnoTrans 2016 trade fair, the Fraunhofer IVI and the Fraunhofer IWS from Dresden are presenting technological solutions for the simulation of passenger flows and for highly efficient manufacturing methods based on low-heat laser welding.  

InnoTrans, being a leading international trade fair for traffic and transportation engineering, will be held from September 20 to 23, 2016 in Berlin. Come visit us at the joint Fraunhofer booth in Hall 23b, Booth 206.

»Intelligent Solutions for Efficient Mobility« Expert Conference

Visions and challenges concerning the digitalization and interconnection within the transportation sector were the main focus of the »Intelligent Solutions for Efficient Mobility« Expert Conference held by the Sächsische Energieagentur (SAENA) on September 15, 2016. Enterprises and research institutions from Saxony presented their expertise and gave an insight into current developments, cutting-edge technologies and their practical experience. In his closing presentation titled »Synchronized Mobility in Dresden – Synchronized Mobility in Nevada«, Professor Matthias Klingner talked about ongoing international activities and cooperative projects.  

At the accompanying press conference, high-profile representatives from science, economy and politics answered the questions of the interested reporters.
