The main focus of SMART POWER HAMBURG is on intelligently linking energy generators, loads and storage systems. In the joint HAMBURG ENERGIE project organised by the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences and RWTH Aachen University, it is being investigated how such a network can enable cities and urban districts not only to supply heat efficiently but also to provide supplementary energy services.

The RECBAR project analysed the potential of the Ethernet technology as the central automotive communication infrastructure. RECBAR is an acronym for “Realtime Ethernet Backbone for Cars”. The project was a cooperation between the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg), IAV automotive engineering, the research and development institute for computer science tools and systems (OFFIS) Oldenburg and the cooperative computing and communication labratory (C-LAB) in Paderborn. It was started in the third quarter 2012 and ended at the end of 2015. The objective of RECBAR was to design, develop and test next-generation backbone architectures for future use as automotive communication infrastructures.
