Connected and automated driving in an increasingly digital mobility poses great challenges for the research and development of new technologies, which require interdisciplinary approaches to solutions. In addition to wireless sensor and transmission methods, these also include methods of functional validation through virtual test drives.

In his scientific talk at the Scientific Forum at the TU Ilmenau, Professor Matthias Hein, Director of the Thüringer Innovationszentrums Mobilität (ThIMo) and Head of the University's  RF and Microwave Research Group, will provide an insight into the thematic background and present current research activities at ThIMo and in his research group on the basis of selected examples.

At the same time, his scientific talk marks the start of TU Ilmenau's "Scientific Year 2022 "Smart World" . For a whole year, the university will be inviting to dialogue: the general public in the form of events, colloquia, lectures and information about current projects on its website; and its own researchers in the form of its internal university dialogue format "Scientific Forum". The focus of the scientific year is on research at TU Ilmenau - numerous projects that make the new "Smart World" more comfortable, environmentally friendly and safer for us humans.
