Presentation of the region's universities in the Stadtgarten

Under the motto "Knowledge creates change", the universities of the region presented themselves in the Stadtgarten on June 30 and July 1, 2022.

The event was organized by the Stuttgart University and Science Region e.V. as part of the Science Festival. Hands-on experiments, demonstrators and exhibitions were attractive program items. At more than 30 stations, visitors gained insights into current research and projects and were able to take a look into the world of the future. The HFT Stuttgart presented itself with the following topics and offers ...

Smart City Demonstrator The Smart City Demonstrator of HFT Stuttgart showed how research can contribute to a climate-competent, resilient and networked society. By means of Mixed Reality, insights into the research work of the Urban Geoinformatics-Lab of the HFT Stuttgart were given in a playful way and made tangible.

The use of virtual reality in university teaching Mathematical teaching content from geometry was presented on a mobile VR system. In front of the system, the topics could be viewed in 3D by three to five viewers using VR glasses. Interaction with the system is also possible using speech and gestures.

What does jigsaw puzzles have to do with planning the assembly of a car? This question was answered by solving a metal puzzle in a race against the computer. Along the way, they learned what a conundrum is all about and what they have to bear in mind when planning the digital assembly of cars.

Serious games in virtual reality Interested visitors were able to experience for themselves the tools of the working world of "tomorrow" using various VR applications. The core of the games is getting to know and trying out individual supporting technologies for picking and assembly as well as economic aspects. If one was not fast enough, the company lost money and it was "Game Over".

Crafting CO2 traffic lights The CO2 traffic light at HFT Stuttgart measures air quality and indicates in good time when it is time to ventilate. Visitors were able to make a CO2 traffic light for themselves. In addition to assembling the housing - work steps: Drilling, filing, sawing - electronic components had to be soldered and plugged together. The traffic light was programmed on site using the appropriate software.

GEO-Challenge of the study program Surveying and Geoinformatics At the GEO-Challenge Surveying and Geoinformatics one could compete against the most modern surveying technology. They also learned how a digital map is created and how the world is captured in 3D.

HFT research centers provided information about individual CO2 footprints The HFT research centers on mobility and energy provided information about individual CO2 footprints through interactive hands-on games. Coffee and ice cream attracted visitors:inside at this booth.

Campus-HUB Campus-HUB is a joint project of the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg Campus Stuttgart, the University of Applied Sciences and the University of Stuttgart, initiated by the respective libraries and presented in the Stadtgarten. The idea is to give the institutions located at the Stadtmitte campus a joint house that will not only be a cross-university library and learning center, but also a center for exchange and dialogue between science and civil society.
