IDC's Inaugural European Data Strategy and Innovation Awards Showcase the Successes of AI, Analytics, and Data Management Trailblazers from Industry

European trailblazers in the fields of AI, analytics, and data management were celebrated today in a special awards webcast hosted by IDC — with category winner awards going to NatWest Markets, Lufthansa CityLine, and Dentsu Aegis Network.


Scientists demand minimum humidity at the workplace

As a result of the Covid 19 crisis, a global petition calls on the World Health Organization (WHO) to define clear guidelines for minimum air humidity in commercial and public buildings. The petition is based on numerous studies that show that a mean humidity level of 40 to 60% can prevent infections of the respiratory tract.

New molecules for innovative high-tech materials

Rare earths are a component of many high-tech products due to their special properties. Scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are working on new possibilities for the use of these elements. The team produces so-called sandwich complexes with rare earths, which in the future could serve as novel molecular materials for more powerful storage media or displays. The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding the pioneering study with 500,000 euros as a Reinhart Koselleck project.

Computer scientist makes virtual worlds palpable

A walk in the woods: you can feel the soft moss under your feet, notice how rotten branches and twigs break when they appear, feel the gnarled bark of a tree. Impressions such as these are perceived through the sense of touch and have therefore been denied to digital worlds until now. Paul Strohmeier, a computer scientist at Saarland University, has now developed a new process that can artificially generate such haptic sensations. This makes virtual reality and "extended reality" comprehensible in the truest sense of the word. For his dissertation on this topic Strohmeier has now been awarded by the world's largest conference for human-computer interaction.

RoboSense Smart LiDAR Sensor Wins the 2020 Edison Awards

RoboSense, the world’s leading autonomous driving LiDAR perception solution provider, has been honored as a winner in Transportation & Logistics Category for 2020 Edison Awards. The Edison Awards is one of the world's prestigious awards that symbolize the persistence and excellence in innovation and honors the most innovative products and business leaders in the world. It is Established in 1987 and named after inventor Thomas Alva Edison and sometimes referred to as “The Oscars of Innovation”. All the winners were chosen as the "best of the best" by the globe review panel consist of 3,000 senior business executives and academics.

Oxbotica and Cisco to Solve Autonomous Vehicle Data Challenge with Pioneering OpenRoaming Platform

- Autonomous vehicles generate 1.2TB of data per day – the equivalent of 500 HD movies or 200,000 songs
- OpenRoaming is key to unlocking seamless and secure sharing of high-volume data by autonomous fleets
- The partnership marks an important operational milestone for Oxbotica as the company prepares for large-scale deployment of its autonomy software
- Together, Oxbotica and Cisco aim to enable cost-effective and fully-scalable deployment globally

Hydrogen and fuel cells gaining ground

One of the big questions facing automakers currently is where the power for their electric vehicles should come from. In Germany, hydrogen and fuel cell technology is an increasingly strong contender in this regard. So much so, in fact, that the country's political leaders are starting to put in place the necessary programs. The northern states of Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Hamburg and Lower Saxony, for example, have adopted a "North German Hydrogen Strategy". HANNOVER MESSE has addressed these issues and challenges for years with a dedicated showcase: Hydrogen + Fuel Cells, Europe's leading event for hydrogen and fuel cell technology.

More than just a buzzword

Innovations as a resource of the digital age
Once the reputation is ruined... To prevent the German corporate landscape from losing its positive image and being left behind by global players, the topic of innovation must be at the top of the agenda. Because innovations are more than just a buzzword - the future belongs to them.

Arkema, Nexoon, 5M, and IRT M2P join forces to work on a project involving factory-manufactured modular constructions made from Elium® resin

Arkema, Nexoon, 5M, and IRT M2P join forces to develop a new concept for factory-manufactured “custom” constructions. Each partner will contribute its expertise and know-how in order to validate this innovative construction concept aimed at meeting the needs of individual or collective, high-end or social, housing and also commercial or industrial buildings.

KIT: Servicing Machine Tools with Artificial Intelligence

Researchers of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have developed a system for fully automatic monitoring of ball screws in machine tools. A camera integrated directly into the nut of the ball screw is used. Based on the image data generated in the process, an artificial intelligence (AI) continuously monitors wear and tear, thus reducing machine downtime.
