Autonomous driving: New algorithm distributes risk fairly
Autonomous driving: New algorithm distributes risk fairly
Software makes more ethically differentiated decisions Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed autonomous driving software which distributes risk on the street in a fair manner. The algorithm contained in the software is considered to be the first to incorporate the 20 ethics recommendations of the EU Commission expert group, thus making significantly more differentiated decisions than previous algorithms.

Search for alternatives to animal testing in research continues to be promoted
A research association led by the MHH is developing chip-based replacement and supplementary methods to avoid animal experiments. To this end, it is receiving 3.6 million euros in follow-up funding. Developing replacement and supplementary methods for animal experiments and thus avoiding animal testing is the goal of the "Micro-Replace Systems" research network led by André Bleich, Director of the Institute of Laboratory Animal Science at Hannover Medical School (MHH), and Maren von Köckritz-Blickwede from the Foundation of the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover.

Benefits of big city life - only for the elite
Benefits of big city life - only for the elite
Urban inequality in Europe and the United States is so severe that urban elites claim most of the benefits from the agglomeration effects that big cities provide, while large parts of urban populations get little to nothing. In a study published in Nature Human Behaviour, researchers at Linköping University and Leipzig University show that the higher-than-expected outputs of larger cities critically depend on the extreme outcomes of the successful few.

A research team at Technische Universität Ilmenau has succeeded in further developing a fundamentally new and very material-saving approach. This approach uses additive material synthesis for semiconductor metallization. The research results, developed in the Nanotechnology Group under the leadership of Professor Heiko Jacobs, follow up on prior publications on lateral nanobridge growth (Advanced Materials 2016, IEEE 2018, IEEE 2020) and open up news ways to connect metallization layers vertically, point-to-point, using a plasma jet process.
