In May, a field test for the new broadcast mode, based on the 5G mobile radio standard, was started in Munich. The TU Braunschweig was highly involved in the development of the "5G Broadcast" system

5G Broadcast will enable broadcasting on mobile LTE-enabled devices such as smartphones or tablets. As part of the field test, the signal will be transmitted from a transmitter on the Wendelstein in the Bavarian Alps and from the Ismaning location of the Bayerischer Rundfunk. The signal is generated by a system which was developed by the Institute for Communications Technology (IfN), TU Braunschweig, in cooperation with Rohde & Schwarz. The used reception technology was also developed by IfN.

Students of the TU Braunschweig win the final round of the 14th student competition of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)

This year's informatikCup task dealt with a basic problem of autonomous driving: In contrast to human viewers, artificial neural networks can be outwitted by specially constructed false images. The students should develop an image generating software that can mislead an artificial neural network for the recognition of traffic signs. The TU students Lukas Pirch and Jonas Müller solved the problem with flying colours and won the first prize in the Germany-wide competition.

The TU Braunschweig is host of this year's annual meeting of the German Geophysical Society (DGG). Special attention will be paid to the close connection between space research and geophysics which is traditionally strong in Braunschweig

The Conference ist organized by the Institute for Geophysics and extraterrestrial Physics (IGeP). With its long history in linking space and geo research the IGeP occupies a unique position in international research. After two decades the 79th DGG Annual Meeting returns to the Institute and offers exchange opportunities for 500 participants from Germany and abroad.

"Accompanying Research Personal-related Services. Service, Opportunities ans Visions" - this is the title under which service developers form all over Germany came together for the KickOff Workshop of the project "BeDien"

As part of the three-year BMBF project "Begleitforschung Personennahe Dienstleistungen (BeDien)" scientists led by Prof. Susanne Robra-Bissantz (Institute of Business Information Systems) and in cooperation with the Jacobs University Bremen examine new approaches within the development of personal-related services. As another project and research partner, TUBS.digital is responsible for the project management within BeDien.

28.01.2019 Loxer Saxony invests in digitization research

The establishment of the Lower Saxony Laboratory of the German Research Center for Arificial Intelligence (DFKI), the announcement of up to 50 professorships for digitization and the development of a Center for Digital Innovation (ZDIN) - all these measures are part of Lower Saxony's digitization offensive

The ZDIN intents to strenght Lower Saxony's research competence in the field of digitization. Further aims are the promotion of cooperation between science and practice and the participation of citizens. The members of ZDIN work together in so-calld future labs which focus on the topics of agriculture, energy, society and work, mobility, prodution and health.

18.12.2018 Faster detection of digital attacks on power plants

To detect hacker attacks at an early stage, a research project with participating researchers at the Institute of System Security (TU BS) developed a new, intelligent detection system for data networks of energy suppliers

Machine learning analyzes traffic and identifies deviations as indicators of digital attacks. Thus, both known and new attack methods are detected and the network operators become able to take timely defensive measures.
