QUANTUM LEAP FOR MATERIALS RESEARCH

How HQS Quantum Simulations, a spin-off from KIT, wants to change research and development of materials and drugs with quantum algorithms fundamentally.

Quantum computers that compute complex tasks at unimaginable speeds are no longer a utopia. In 2019, Google announced it had achieved "Quantum Advantage" - the development of a processor that dwarfs the most powerful supercomputers. It solves problems that would cause any supercomputing center available today to fail.

TROUBLESHOOTING 4.0

The start-up SenseING develops customized measurement units based on the principle of LEGO building blocks and brings light into darkness with the modular sensor kit SenseKIT: The combination of fully comprehensive service and modern hardware enables qualitative tracking of delivery and production processes. Troubleshooting made easy!

"Our idea was born during a hackathon at the KIT Institute of Production Science (wbk)," Sven Kruse recalls the beginnings of his business idea. "At the hackathon, Kiryl Deschuk and I looked together at errors in the supply chain and hypothesized that many errors happen during transportation - but in the end, it is usually unclear exactly where. We started thinking about how to design error analysis and quickly came to the condition monitoring approach. We then developed a pallet containing sensors including a traffic light system that lights up when predefined limit values are exceeded. We were able to convince the jury with this concept," Kruse continues.

ENERGY TRANSITION AT HOME - STORING SOLAR POWER SAFELY.

How researchers led by Dr. Thomas Blank, together with RCT Power GmbH, have developed a battery management system for stationary home storage systems. The system secures the operation of electricity storage systems and makes solar energy efficiently usable for home consumption.

Photovoltaic systems for domestic use are in demand as never before. Owners and planners of such systems are increasingly opting for the complete package consisting of a solar panel for energy generation, a solar inverter for energy conversion and a domestic electricity storage system. This means that the electricity generated does not have to be fed directly into the grid, but can be temporarily stored for self-consumption. This allows the electricity generated from photovoltaic systems to be used efficiently and economically. Since 2018, the number of solar power storage systems installed in Germany has doubled to 200,000 small systems, according to the German Solar Industry Association, and forecasts show a further upward trend.

BRIGHT FUTURE

Michael Heidinger has developed a circuit that makes LED street lights more energy-efficient and longer lasting. Together with GRATZ Luminance and Pfalzwerke, he ventures the field test.

Anyone walking through the Musikerviertel district of the municipality of Maxdorf in the late evening will notice a change: 25 streetlights are shining in new light. In February 2019, the old mercury vapor lamps were replaced there with modern LED lighting modules.

SECOND CHANCE FOR GREENHOUSE GASES

Spin-off INERATEC stands for container-sized reactors that convert waste gases into synthetic fuel. Air and sea transport in particular could benefit from the green fuel.

The average temperature on Earth is rising by almost 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade, and the trend is upward. This is primarily due to the mass production of carbon dioxide.

THE VIRTUAL TEST

How spin-off GoSilico aims to revolutionize the biopharma industry with simulation software.

"What drives us," says mathematician Dr. Teresa Baumann, "is the mission to bring biopharmaceutical active ingredients to market faster and cheaper." Together with Dr. Tobias Hahn, Dr. Thiemo Huuk, and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Hubbuch, she founded GoSilico GmbH, a KIT spin-off, in 2016.

WAVELENGTHS AHEAD

A research team led by Professor Dr. Thomas Zwick has joined forces with industry partners to develop a powerful miniature radar sensor that can make drones for logistics, agriculture, or rescue missions smarter and safer.

Bats are known to see with their ears: Despite their poor eyesight, they fly through the night at lightning speed without bumping into obstacles. This is made possible by their ability to echolocate. In flight, they constantly emit ultrasonic cries that the human ear cannot perceive because they lie outside the audible frequency range.

How KIT spin-off Kinemic GmbH wants to revolutionize industrial processes with gesture control software.

What was considered a vision of the future in science fiction movies 20 years ago is reality today: data glasses on which virtual graphics can be superimposed on the user's field of vision are ubiquitous and have, in the meantime, also found their way into industrial halls.

How Eric Gottwald, Stefan Giselbrecht and Roman Truckenmüller want to revolutionize cell testing in the pharmaceutical industry with their company 300MICRONS.

It is well known that liver cells have to be able to withstand a lot - in the human body, they ensure a functioning metabolism and break down toxins, among other things. Liver diseases usually require intensive treatment and are often fatal if no suitable donor organ is available.

BRIDGE WHISPERING

How Steffen Siegel wants to ensure safety under bridges and other rope-tensioned structures.

Traffic on the A8 between Karlsruhe and Pforzheim to Stuttgart roars over the Pfinztal Bridge near Nöttingen - a well-traveled route, notorious for its construction sites and traffic jams. It is noisy on the bridge, but the noise seems even louder below the roadway, inside the bridge.

How KIT spin-off Carola Clean Air GmbH fights particulate matter in the air with special filters for wood-burning stoves.

Comfortable warmth on cold winter days is something we take for granted. We can create our individual feel-good temperature with a quick flick of the wrist. However, anyone who ventures from the sofa in the living room to the boiler room will realize that behind the degrees Celsius lies a complex technical system.

THE GLOW OF THE FUTURE

How Tobias Grab, Thomas Baumann, and Michael Bächle turn technological science fiction into a business model with their start-up cynora at KIT.

The images in the newspaper are moving and the Minister of Magic waves at us friendly from the side - this looks familiar to "Harry Potter" readers. A television that can be rolled up like a roller blind – was that not a short scene in the movie "Back to the Future"? To make such fantasy images a reality, screens would have to be very thin, flexible and printable.

SQUARING THE SKIES

How Professor Uwe Hanebeck is working with COMSOFT GmbH to make international airspace safer.

Germany's largest airport, Frankfurt am Main, records more than 1,300 takeoffs and landings every day. More than three million aircraft fly in the airspace of the Federal Republic of Germany every year, and there are around 80,000 flights worldwide every day. There is thus heavy traffic in the skies - yet flying is still a safe way to travel.

ON THE GOLD SCALE

It is a well-known problem that the average population in Western countries is getting increasingly overweight. What has received less attention is the impressive increase in the weight of motor vehicles over the past 30 years. Some of today's mid-range cars weigh almost 600 kilograms more than their predecessors decades ago. With gasoline prices at historically high levels in 2012, this trend is having an impact on the wallet. Not only that: heavier cars emit more pollutants and have a greater impact on the environment. KIT scientists Frank Henning, Jürgen Fleischer, and Kay Weidenmann want to slim down cars and airplanes with hybrid lightweight technologies.

THE WAY IS THE GOAL

The human brain is extremely powerful - we often do not notice the computing power required to cope with everyday things. We find our way to work almost 'as if in our sleep'. We do not think consciously and still drive, walk or cycle, left, right and left again, to our destination.

CLEAN AIR IN MISSISSIPI

Kemper County is located in the deep south of the United States. The sparsely populated county in the eastern part of the Mississippi state is surrounded by large lignite deposits. Since 2011, the Kemper County IGCC has been under construction here - a state-of-the-art 582-megawatt coal-fired power plant with CCS technology that will use lignite to meet Mississippi's growing electricity needs starting in 2014. Yet it will emit no more carbon dioxide than a natural gas-fired power plant of equal electrical capacity. Two-thirds of the carbon dioxide produced will be captured and used for better exploitation of neighboring oil fields. KIT technology is at the heart of the huge plant.
