The possibilities of innovative inclusion technologies, above all, are a chance for society. This was the key theme of the first annual M-Enabling Forum Europe, held September 27, 2018 in the Congress Center of Messe Düsseldorf.

The conference and showcase was organized by, global exhibition management company E.J. Krause & Associates and The Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technology (G3ict), an advocacy initiative launched under the auspices of the United Nations to promote digital accessibility

More than 150 conference guests and over 20 sponsors and exhibitors participated in the M-Enabling Forum. Participants and attendees came from 14 countries including: Austria, Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Norway, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

Representatives from organizations of persons with disabilities, technology companies, regulatory bodies and institutions gathered for a day of thought-provoking panel discussions, innovative exhibition displays in the foyer showcase and intensive networking.

Inmaculada Placencia Porrero from the European Commission served as the opening keynote speaker. In her remarks, Ms Placencia Porrero pointed out that there is progress in the converging European ecosystem, she highlighted how accessibility needs to become mainstream and a major goal in closing the gap between persons with disabilities and the rest of the population when it comes to employment.

During the following panels, accessibility experts addressed how technology can improve independent living, the future of mobile accessibility and how common standards make it possible to cross borders and access technology in the same way at the same time.

The closing panel of the day discussed how smart technology is an engine of prosperity for all society. The key take-away message was that inclusion does not only benefit persons with disabilities, but also represents a chance for the whole society.

Digital accessibilty should play a key role in tech innovation. The issues discussed at the M-Enabling Forum Europe were both important and impactful. We saw a very successful launch with the first edition.

Research in Central and Eastern Europe: networks for automotive Innovation

– Universities in Central and Eastern Europe are working on ambitious projects for the future’s mobillity
– CEEPUS: the education network of the region presents "AutoAuto" as a platform for joint research on autonomous driving
– edubiz Symposium at the Automotive Hungary in Budapest :: Exploitation of experience and matchmaking with the industry

Through their universities, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe are positioning themselves in the new value-added chains of global automobile production. The educational network CEEPUS, which includes 15 countries in the region, is seeking intensive communication with the international automotive industry for ambitious research and development projects at universities. In the automotive trade fair "Automotive Hungary" from 17 to 18 October 2018, edubiz will be presenting the CEEPUS initiative "AutoAuto" and selected projects on the future of mobility.

Central and Eastern Europe has become a hub for the global automotive industry. Only in the four countries of Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary, German manufacturers produced almost 1.7 million vehicles in 2017 – almost 17 percent of total German production abroad. The countries of the region want to reposition themselves to the changes in the value chains, which are emerging with electric mobility, the networking of vehicles and autonomous driving, to avoid a role as an "extended workbench". "Hungary wants to be an innovation hub for the automotive industry. For this we have all the skills in the country, "says Prof. László Palkovics, Hungary’s Minister of Innovation and Technology. Palkovics opens an international keynote conference on October 17, 2018 at the country’s most important automotive trade fair, Automotive Hungary. Representatives of OEMs, suppliers and research will talk about "Innovation – the driving force behind the automotive industry".

In Budapest, therefore, the educational network CEEPUS seeks dialogue with the international automotive industry. It has also invited the universities, which are working on research projects on the future of the vehicle and mobility throughout the region, to Budapest to attend the conference and take advantage of networking opportunities with industry. "We want the impulses coming from research and teaching in the region to reach the industrial companies very quickly," says Elisabeth Sorantin, CEEPUS’ secretary-general. The dialogue format edubiz, which took place in Budapest for the first time in 2017, aims to stimulate the exchange and networking between the education sector and companies.

AutoAuto: a research network for autonomous driving

Already on October 16, 2018, a transnational coordination meeting of the CEEPUS network "AutoAuto" will take place in Budapest. Its focus is in the field of artificial intelligence and autonomous driving. "We expect an expanded potential for innovation through closer and cross-border coordinated cooperation of the various subprojects", Elisabeth Sorantin describes the initiative.

AutoAuto’s partners currently include the coordinating University of Maribor, Graz University of Technology, Budapest BME, ELTE, the University of Montenegro, universities in Gliwice, Poznan and Krakow, as well as Novi Sad, Lubljana and Zagreb. The coordination of research projects should also accelerate the transfer of knowledge into teaching and in the respective "ecosystems" of the industry. All partners of the network already cultivate intensive cooperation with each other and are involved in European research and funding projects. CEEPUS also wants to support the academic and personal exchange between the individual universities.

edubiz: Dialogue between education sector and companies

The implementation of the conference and matchmaking format edubiz in Budapest is a joint initiative of CEEPUS and the Stuttgart-based media company local global. In Germany, local global has organized edubiz events in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe since 2010. Themes were each time the resources that the education sector can provide for the international growth of companies. For 2019, partners are planning an edubiz premiere at the world’s leading trade fair for production technology, the Hannover Messe.

Automotive Hungary is a trade fair of Hungexpo in Budapest with over 200 exhibitors from 10 countries and around 10,000 trade visitors. One highlight of the trade fair is "Automotive – Techtogether" – a technical "hackathon" in which students will develop projects during the three fair’s days and present them to a specialist’s jury.

LogiMAT to fill 10 halls for first time

LogiMAT, which returns to Stuttgart in February 2019, is already almost fully booked nearly seven months before its doors open. Hall 2 will be integrated for the first time, expanding the overall exhibit space by 7,500 square meters. LogiMAT will fill all 10 halls of Messe Stuttgart, including the gallery in Hall 1, to occupy a total space of 120,000 square meters. Organizers expect over 1,600 international exhibitors, who together will present a unique diversity of “intralogistics from the source.” Over 170 first-time exhibitors have already registered.

LogiMAT will return stronger than ever in early 2019 to reassert its role as the world’s leading information platform and “working” trade show—where the intralogistics industry goes to do business.

The event will extend into Hall 2 for the first time, integrating another nearly 5,000 square meters to accommodate the strong demand for more exhibit space. One of the focuses here will be “Innovation Made in Germany,” a shared booth where start-ups will present innovative products and solutions in the areas of distribution, material flow, and software/IT.

Toyota Material Handling Deutschland will also be on hand alongside its affiliate Vanderlande Industries, occupying 600 square meters as an anchor exhibitor. In addition, there are well-known companies such as Helge Nyberg, AutoStore and Itoh Denki in Hall 2.

Another highlight in Hall 2 will be TradeWorld, the Professional Platform for Trade Processes. TradeWorld exhibitors will showcase products and solutions for the digitization of e-commerce and omnichannel trade processes while experts offer presentations on cutting-edge issues of trade logistics in the TradeWorld expert forum. In this way, TradeWorld demonstrates the unique synergies between trade and logistics processes within LogiMAT.

Exhibitors from the fields of plant engineering and conveyance technology will be on hand as usual in Halls 1, 3, 5, and 7. Here, too, LogiMAT has responded to the growing interest of exhibitors by extending the exhibit space into the gallery in Hall 1.

Forklift trucks and accessories, driverless transport systems, battery and energy management solutions, crane and hoist technology, and cargo securement will be located once again in Halls 7, 9, and 10.

The broad field of packaging, packaging systems, and containers will return to Halls 4 and 6, right next to the area for identification technology and RFID along the southern flank of Messe Stuttgart. Intralogistics software solutions will be showcased in Halls 6 and 8.

“We’ve heard from many exhibitors who want more booth space in 2019 compared to the previous year. So far, we’ve managed to persuade our customers that LogiMAT’s focus on diversity is in the interests of its visitors. This can only succeed if our exhibit space grows at a healthy pace,” remarks LogiMAT’s new Exhibition Director Michael Ruchty from event organizer EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH. “We find it exciting when our exhibitors include both global players and smaller enterprises. The ability of visitors to directly compare these offerings side by side is what makes LogiMAT so unique. We’ll remain true to this concept going forward.”

The 17th International Trade Show for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management will once again offer professionals from the manufacturing and commercial industries a complete overview of the latest trends in products and solutions in 2019. LogiMAT helps visitors make wise investment decisions, and the high quality of the accompanying program provides valuable guidance for responding to current and future needs. This reaffirms LogiMAT’s mission of offering “Intralogistics from the Source: Intelligent—Efficient—Innovative.”

„CONCAR-EXPO 2018“ has ended

CONCAR EXPO 2018 took place in Berlin and finished successfully on Thursday attracting approx. 800 visitors. This year, special visitor magnets were the live demonstrations of autonomous technologies as well as the expert presentations at the CONCAR Congress.

CONCAR-EXPO 2018 is Europe’s largest international trade fair for Connected Car, Automated Driving and Mobility Solutions. More than 800 visitors and more than 80 exhibitors gathered in Berlin on Wednesday and Thursday. At the CONCAR Congress and the CONCAR Forum, participants received visionary insights into the innovations and opportunities of new mobility. Trade show visitors were able to experience prototypes and the latest solutions for automation in the vehicle in great detail.

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Lutz Eckstein, Director of the Institute of Automotive Engineering (ika) – RWTH Aachen University and Chairman of the VDI Society Automotive and Traffic Systems Technology, opened the CONCAR-CONGRESS with a keynote speech about automated driving. In his lecture, the social and traffic engineering perspectives as well as the economic effects of autonomous driving became particularly clear.

Social Potentials of Automated Driving

Prof. Eckstein sees great social potential in autonomous driving. The introduction of driverless shuttles and taxis, for example, automated parking or perfect driver assistance enable better individual mobility. It becomes affordable and increases the quality of life considerably. In addition, automated commercial vehicles, such as autonomous trucks, will soon enable goods to be transported more efficiently, safely and for a cheaper price. New mobility concepts such as Shared Mobility should reduce traffic and, thus, improve the overall quality of life in the city.

Potential for traffic safety and efficiency

Approximately 30 percent of all accidents are caused by aggressive driving. According to Eckstein, these can be avoided with the help of the new vehicle technologies.
Automated driving and driver assistance add enormously to human capabilities. Thanks to their networking and sensory properties, autonomous vehicles drive cooperatively, proactively and efficiently. Thus, the safety in traffic can be significantly increased, whereby in mixed traffic (automated and conventional) further errors of other road users can still be expected.

Economic Impact

Automobile change is accompanied by a high demand for innovative products and services. This increasing demand allows for a great deal of economic and employment growth. What is needed are a variety of systems for cars, commercial vehicles and new vehicle concepts, especially with electric drive. Infrastructure innovations such as charging infrastructure or network expansion offer further potential, says Prof. Eckstein.

Requirements for Smart Cities

The speakers of the CONCAR-EXPO press conference on the first day of the event also agreed that automated driving brings significant improvements in quality of life and road safety as well as completely new business models. The central prerequisite for this is, according to Mr. Henry Widera, Head of Digitisation at Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), says that "cities are finding ways to establish Sharing Services as attractive and leading mobility concepts before autonomous vehicles become affordable for private households." The most significant innovations emerge, according to Mr. Nicolaus Gollwitzer, CEO of Telefónica NEXT, in the combination of data, networked hardware and new service models. The use of data is, as he sees it, the key factor in improving living standards and environmental protection. The speakers were also in agreement that in the competition of the cities for the highest quality of life, ultimately only the cities which recognise the potential and implement the new concepts.

PLACE AND DATE CONCAR-EXPO 2019

25 – 26 June

Aluminium Brazing: 10th congress with a new record

The series of successes is showing no signs of stopping: From June 12 to 14, 270 participants and 17 exhibitors from 27 countries used the 10th International "Aluminium Brazing 2018" Congress with an Exhibition in Düsseldorf in order to exchange experience. Together with DVS Media GmbH, the German Welding Society (DVS) successfully staged this international event for the fourth time already.

The organisers and the exhibitors were pleased to establish the constantly growing number of participants in the congress. At the same time, they were also able to register an increase in guests from the Asian region, such as Korea or China.

Dr. Hans-Walter Swidersky, Mentor of Aluminium Brazing, greeted the numerous participants and Dr.-Ing. Hartmut Schmoor, Chairman of the "Brazing/Soldering" Specialist Society in DVS, delivered the welcoming address on the occasion of the opening ceremony. Subsequently, the speakers from all over the world of aluminium brazing provided information. In this respect, the selection of the lectures about the subject areas of materials, testing, applications, equipment, quality management, process control as well as research and development met with great approval amongst the listeners. "Highly interesting, relevant to practice and exciting" was the tenor.

The accompanying exhibition was also received positively and thus well-visited. Here, there were a lot of intensive expert discussions about all aspects of the subject of aluminium brazing. Because all the participants and exhibitors concentrated on "networking" this time too.

With regard to technical relevance, establishing contacts as well as framework conditions, the vast majority of the participants rated the event as good to very good. Thus, two thirds now already know that they definitely want to come again. The next Aluminium Brazing will again take place in Düsseldorf at the end of April 2020.
