On October 12, 2022, the "Future Mobility Open Labs" took place in Karlsruhe, where the InnovationCampus Future Mobility (ICM) demonstrated initial solutions for electric motors without rare earths, novel manufacturing technologies, and self-learning software systems for vehicles.
Almost 300 researchers in about 60 research projects and 40 research institutes of the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) bundle their competencies in research and innovation in a joint platform. The ICM is one of the largest initiatives on mobility and production of the future in Germany.
Prof. Thomas Graf: "We are working on integrating all laser-based manufacturing processes”. 3D printing, welding, cutting, drilling, coating and hardening on a single system - as the 'Swiss army knife' of manufacturing, so to speak - would enable location-independent, highly efficient production without warehousing and logistics chains.
