The initiative “Citizens Create Knowledge“, which in 2012 earned the city of Kaiserslautern the title “City of Science“ in the contest of the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wirtschaft, calls upon the citizens of Kaiserslautern to collect creative solution ideas for problematic issues in the city of Kaiserslautern. Over 60 proposals have been submitted, and six of these topics will now be pursued further. One of these topics is how to improve traffic light control in Kaiserslautern by means of “intelligent traffic light systems“. The coordination of this project lies with the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE, which plans to work on this issue with the help of the Institute for Mobility and Traffic of the University of Kaiserslautern, the company Mobotix, and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) Kaiserslautern in collaboration with the city of Kaiserslautern.
The student contest “IT’sAPP2you” has started into its first round with a lot of positive response. From a multitude of submissions of creative APP ideas from throughout Rhineland-Palatinate, the expert jury has now selected the ten most interesting concepts, which will be further developed together with IT experts at the “IT’sAPP2you” Spring Camp from 26 to 28 April 2013.
Without any doubt, mobile applications have conquered the consumer market and have entered our daily lives. In the business environment, too, the potential of mobile business apps is used frequently. Fraunhofer IESE has now developed an iPad app that offers an attractive way to explore software engineering methods. The “mConcAppt” method, for example, explains the early phases of the construction of mobile business apps step by step. The Fraunhofer IESE “Engineering Software App” is available online in the Apple App Store starting immediately.
From 26 to 28 February 2013, Fraunhofer IESE will present itself at the Embedded World trade fair in Nuremberg at the Joint Booth of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in hall 5, booth 228, with new concepts for improving the safety of embedded systems, illustrated on the example of “Smart Farming“.
