Transfer-Day "Innovative Offers for Everyday Life in Work and Leisure"

This exhibition with accompanying lecture program is one of the four components of the two-day Innovation Forum "Autonomous, Mobile Services - Services for Mobility"  in the Audimax and nearby outdoor areas of the HTW Berlin, one of the three organizers. The other two organizers are the GFaI Society for the Promotion of Applied Computer Science (Institute at HTW Berlin) with its ZIM cooperation network MoDiSeM and Berlin Partner for Business and Technology GmbH.

Prof. Dr. Matthias Knaut (Vice President Research of the HTW Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Alfred Iwainsky (chiefly responsible network manager MoDiSeM) welcomes the participants and wishes many new insights and interesting discussions at the individual stands.

Afterwards, Prof. Iwainsky announces presentations at various stands within the Audimax and in the outdoor area. There is a distinct dynamic of small and larger groups of visitors for about four hours. A special highlight is the demonstration of control of electric wheelchairs via eye movements by Timothy Fürstenberg (partner of the exhibitor MECOSO GmbH & Co KG). Later the participants can choose between further stand visits or even a few test drives and the lectures in the "Speakers' Corner".
