Highspeed Satellitenfunk For the first time 15 gigabit/second over a distance of 15 kilometres

Scientists from the University of Stuttgart have succeeded in transmitting a data rate of 15 gigabit per second (Gbit/s) with a microwave radio link in the so-called E-band over a distance of more than 15 kilometres. This corresponds to three times the data rate and distance compared to today’s state of the art. The transmission was even possible in fog and light rain. Such microwave radio links could be used for the next generation of satellite communication where large amounts of data have to be brought from the satellite through the earth’s atmosphere to the ground station. The same frequency range, however, is also permitted for the terrestrial data transmission and is currently experiencing a global upswing. Mehr...

Pantoffeltierchen How Paramecium protozoa claw their way to the top

The ability to swim upwards – towards the sun and food supplies – is vital for many aquatic microorganisms. Exactly how they are able to differentiate between above and below in often murky waters is still not understood today. An extremely simple trick of physics involving the self-organised balancing of two forces could offer a reliable and effective explanation of this phenomenon. This has been demonstrated by an international research team headed by Clemens Bechinger from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart. Mehr...

Big Data Future questions regarding data processing

Under the auspices of Prof. Johanna Wanka, Federal Minister of Education and Research, the 44 th annual meeting of Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) is taking place from 22 nd until 26 th September 2014 on the Vaihingen campus of the University of Stuttgart. The complexity of the data as well as the complexity of the systems and applications are the major themes of the conference that goes by the motto of “Big Data – Mastering Complexity“. Informatik-Forum Stuttgart e.V. (infos) is conducting the event on behalf of GI. Over 1,000 participants are expected, including numerous top-class representatives from science, business and politics. Mehr...

e-Bürgerbustauglicher Minibus University of Stuttgart investigates electrically operated citizens’ buses

Scientists from the Institute of Business Administration and the Institute of Railway and Transportation Engineering at the University of Stuttgart are jointly investigating along with other partners from the region to what extent local public transport can be improved in the countryside through active citizens’ involvement and the use of electric mobility. The starting signal for the project “e-Bürgerbus” (electric citizens’ bus), planned to last two years, will be given in a kick-off event on 22 nd September at 6 pm in the town hall of the trial municipality of Salach/ District of Göppingen.
