Dresden Researchers Night 2016
June 13, 2016
At this year’s event, almost 900 guests had the opportunity to gain fascinating insights into selected research projects of the Fraunhofer IVI. Under the motto »Staunend durch die Nacht« (Through the night in awe), the guests had the chance to make a few quiet laps on the test track – either as the drivers of an electric car or as the passengers of a plug-in-hybrid bus. A virtual tour of the autartec® building, which was realized by an augmented reality app, was a highlight for the young and the old. A crafts and drawing table was provided for the youngest guests. In addition, they could participate in a treasure hunt during which they were able to get to know future-oriented locating and positioning technologies.
The Fraunhofer IVI was again chosen as the first stop on the special tour of Dresden’s First Mayor, Dirk Hilbert. Before the official start of the event, the tour’s high-profile guests, one of them being Saxony’s State Minister of Science and Art, Dr. Eva-Maria Stange, had the opportunity to see the many booths and take part in the activities provided by the Fraunhofer IVI.
