While the new 5G technology is at the first stages of rollout, Rohde & Schwarz, the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF are taking a step further with demonstrations in the terahertz (THz) frequency band, related to the 6th generation wireless mobile communication (6G). The collaboration has resulted in a wireless transmit and receive system operating between 270 and 320 GHz, with further frequency extensions for potential 6G bands already in preparation.
ZF has received the Innovation Award from the Busworld trade exhibition for its CeTrax electric central drive. The electric drive allows buses used for public transportation to operate with zero emissions. ZF’s technology beat out strong competition in the category for individual components and peripherals.
