« New York City awards $3.8M multi-year contract to Envision Solar to purchase EV ARC solar-powered EV chargers | Main | Brunel, Sarginsons developing high-performance cast aluminum alloys for energy-absorbing structures; better bumpers without steel » “Productive4.0”, the largest European research initiative to date in the field of Industry 4.0, was launched at Infineon Technologies in Dresden. Coordinated by Infineon Technologies AG, more than 100 partners from 19 European countries will work on digitizing and networking industry. Involved in the project are partners such as BMW, Bosch, Philips, Thales, NXP, STM, SAP, ABB, Volvo and Ericsson, and leading institutes such as the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and the TU Dresden. At the kick-off event, representatives from politics, business and research discussed the importance of research programs for connected production. Productive4.0 is part of ECSEL, the European funding program for microelectronics. Its aim is to strengthen expertise in microelectronics with a view to broad digitization. Thirty partners from Germany and a further 79 participants will work together for three years. The project has a volume of €106 million (US$119 million). The EU and the participating Member States are funding the project as part of ECSEL with around €51 million (US$57 million). The Free State of Saxony and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will jointly contribute €9.6 million (US$11 million) to the project. The aim is to create a user platform across value chains and industries that especially promotes the digital networking of manufacturing companies, production machines and products. The participating partners will examine methods, concepts and technologies for service-oriented architecture as well as for components and infrastructure in the Internet of Things. Other aspects are standardization and process virtualization, in other words, simulating manufacturing processes to optimize real workflows. The platform can be used in the three interlocked process pillars for managing the supply chains, the product life cycle and digital production. The Productive4.0 project will run until 30 April 2020. The kick-off event in Dresden was attended by the project partners and government representatives.

The invention relates to a method for quantifying emitting particles and for characterizing the time-dependent behavior of the particles. The number n of emissions of the particles in the measuring period that have been detected in a time interval having a predetermined interval width within the measuring period is ascertained, wherein the evaluation is performed particularly for a plurality of time intervals having the same interval width, with a distribution function p(n) for the number n of detected emissions being determined. For the interval width different bin times are stipulated, and, for each bin time , the evaluation is performed and a distribution function p_()(n) is ascertained, wherein, for each bin time , moments m_(i,)^(Mess )for the distribution function p_()(n) are ascertained, from which bin time dependent moment functions m_(i)^(Mess)() are presented. Comparison with a theoretical signal function comprising moments m_(i)^(sig)() for the theoretical signal distribution ascertains constants that characterize the particles in the system.

The present invention is applicable to the field of communication technologies, and provides a user scheduling method, a master base station, a user equipment, and a heterogeneous network. The method includes: receiving, by a master base station, a downlink interference indicator DII forwarded by a serving slave base station serving a user equipment UE, where the DII is sent to the serving slave base station by the UE attached to the serving slave base station, and when the DII is greater than a preset threshold, the DII indicates that the UE is in a high DII region; determining, according to the DII, whether the UE is in a high DII region; and if the UE is in a high DII region, allocating, when performing scheduling, fewer resources that may interfere with the UE. In the present invention, after receiving the DII fed back by the UE, the slave base station forwards the DII to the master base station; and when the UE is in a high DII region, the master base station actively allocates, when performing scheduling, fewer resources that may interfere with the UE attached to the slave base station, thereby reducing interference received by the UE attached to the slave base station.


The fiber direction of a carbon fiber material of a test object is detected by means of the polarization direction of light reflected by the test object. If, for example, non-polarized light impinges upon carbon fibers, light reflected by the fibers is polarized in fiber direction.
