  • SummerCamp – Development Simulation Game Automotive Design
    Next SummerCamp: 2 to 7 September 2018

    In SummerCamp, competing teams will develop distributed automotive comfort systems according to AUTOSAR standard. The development process proceeds along the V-model from requirements management through system architecture design to technical design and implementation. Tools from practice are used in all phases of the process. The developed software is transmitted to networked control units and tested in module, integration and acceptance tests for compliance with system requirements.

    In addition to the technical tasks, a series of further challenges is to be mastered in a team. These serve to prepare the participants for the management of business requirements in an internationally operating enterprise.

    The development simulation game is supplemented by presentations and trainings by domain experts. In this context, company contacts can be established for a possible future career in the automotive industry or the development of distributed systems.

    Application deadline: 08.07.2018
    Information event: 14.06.2018 at 16:45 in room HS 66.712 (in the House of Electrical Engineering, Hans-Sommer-Str. 66)

  • Emilia comes!

    On Septemper 10th, 2014, shortly after the series production of Volkswagen's 100% electric vehicle has started, 3 Volkswagen eGolfs have been handed over to three institutes of the TU Braunschweig. The electric vehicles will be modified to be compatible with the inductive charging infrastructure (Bombardier's PRIMOVE) that has been developed and set up in in the project emil. The modifications are carried out in cooperation with the three research institutes elenia (Prof. Engel), IMAB (Prof. Meins, Prof. Henke), and iVA (Prof. Schnieder) of the TU Braunschweig.

  • Successful appearance of NFF and Technische Universität Braunschweig on the MovingIDEAS Workshop in Berlin

    Under the slogan 'Ideas-Interactions-Innovations', the Deutsche Bahn and the MovingIDEAS partners have invited to its Innovation Workshop 2014 in Berlin on June 30th and July 1st 2014. Around 120 representatives of various mobility and logistics service providers, small and major industrial companies as well as several universities discussed in keynote speeches and workshops about different challenges and ideas concerning future mobility. Thereby, the participants ranged from the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Bahn AG, Professor Dr. Dr. Felcht, to students. On the part of the NFF and TU Braunschweig Vice President Prof. Reimers, Professor Vietor, Prof. Schnieder, Prof. Pachl and Prof. Siefer participated at the workshop.
    In addition to the plenary discussions about potential areas of innovation and opportunities for cooperation between science, industry and mobility operators, nine prestigious universities had the opportunity to present their activities in the field of mobility and transport at the 'Science Forum'.
    On this occasion the NFF and the TU Braunschweig presented the new projects Battery LABfactory Baunschweig and Open Hybrid Lab Factory to the visiting representatives from railway and logistics companies. The displayed Open Lab Hybrid Factory LEGO model was one of the main attractions on the forum and starter for many interesting conversations.
