New technical developments in the automotive industry bring new challenges to proving ground management. What this means for the safety of drivers on automotive test tracks in the future and how the safety can be maximized, will be discussed by our Managing Director Michael Meiser at CAV Canada 2019 (connected and autonomous vehicles) in Ottawa.

 

Under the topic "Challenges for the safe operation of automotive proving grounds in the future" he will describe in a panel how the safe operation on proving grounds succeeds and what needs to be done to maintain the safety of using connected and autonomous vehicles in the future. The panel discussion will take place on 10th September 2019 in panel # 10: "demonstrations and pilots".

 

From the 9th to the 10th of September 2019, CAV 2019 is expected to bring together hundreds of interested parties of the industry, science, government and nonprofit organizations who want to drive global market opportunities in this dynamic sector. Among them are other high-profile speakers from all over the world. The organizers are the Kanata North Business Association and Invest Ottawa in cooperation with the Canadian Automated Vehicles Center of Excellence (CAVCOE.)

 

We look forward to inspiring discussions on this exciting topic.

The next level has been reached: mm-lab is in the second competition stage of the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes 2019", a famous award for small and medium-sized companies. For the first step, a total of 5,399 companies were nominated nationwide. Of these, 758 companies climbed to the second, penultimate competition stage. The finalists from all 16 federal states selected by the twelve regional juries will be honored in autumn 2019. The prize will be awarded for the 25th time this year. As the sustainable management of our customers is already supported by our services in their planning phase, the competition topic of this year "Sustainable Economic" fits perfectly with our telematics solutions and engineering services.

                   

 The goal of this honorarily organized competition of the “Oskar Patzelt Foundation” is to promote corporate responsibility. The special attention of the jury lies in the consideration of the criteria "overall development of the company", "creation of work and training places", as well as in "modernization and innovation". In addition, the focus is also on "commitment in the region" and the topics "service, customer proximity and marketing".

 

In November 2018, we were honored for our product innovation CAVE! by the State of Baden-Württemberg as part of the awarding of the Innovation Prize. Therefore, it is a special pleasure for us, that the appreciation of the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes" also confirms our actions in our overall entrepreneurial performance.

By participating in the manager training program of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, mm-lab is expanding its network with foreign companies. The training supports executives from small and medium-sized companies in the partner countries, who can exchange technical and factual information on site with German companies in the region.

 

The four-week training program for managers is initiated by the German Association for International Cooperation (GIZ), since 2019 in cooperation with the IHK Region Stuttgart. The aim of the program is, in addition to economic development, the promotion of intercultural competences and the identification of opportunities for cooperation. mm-lab participates for the first time in the program. In Kornwestheim, we presented our products and explained interesting facts about the field of telematics and our innovations, which we develop. The Mexican guests were particularly interested in the collision awareness system, which received recognition at the award ceremony of the Innovation Award of the State of Baden-Württemberg in November 2018. More intensive discussions took place between the companies in the IT sector, with whom the contact details were exchanged.

Aldenhoven, 2019/05/17.

 

The Aldenhoven Test Center in North Rhine-Westphalia is currently examining the proving ground management system (PGMS) of the mm-lab GmbH in a test that lasts several weeks. Thereby the Aldenhoven Testing Center takes the chance to explore the PGMS functions independently in the form of a test system and to test out which applications are required for the proving ground. The test system represents the PGMS with its essential system scope. Among the central implementations of the test include also the voice communication and the collision awareness system CAVE!, which was awarded by the state of Baden-Württemberg. The latter was specially configured for the Aldenhoven 3-lane oval track. Based on GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and fast 4G LTE data communication, CAVE! sets worldwide standards in the generation of safety on proving grounds by using highly accurate positioning. The Aldenhoven Testing Center demands the PGMS to provide a higher level of security on its proving ground. In addition, the integrated booking and usage recording systems are expected to a relief in the administrative tasks in daily operation.In a first feedback managing director Dr.-Ing. Frank-Josef Heßeler is very pleased with the PGMS possibilities of increasing the efficiency of the business processes. In a first feedback managing director Dr.-Ing.

While the 5G frequencies have just been auctioned off in Germany, mm-lab is already expanding its know-how on this topic with its trial installation. In Aldenhoven they have some special features: Germany's first Vodafone 5G mobile tower has already been commissioned there. In addition, the Aldenhoven Testing Center has a Galileo pseudolite test infrastructure at its disposal that already allows tests with the European satellite system Galileo. As part of a cooperation, the technologies will be used by mm-lab for further development of its PGMS.

 

The Aldenhoven Testing Center also offers its customers a test and validation environment for automated and connected vehicles under realistic urban conditions1. The urban environment has been integrated as part of the project CERMcity, which was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
