HTW, “Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (FH)”, is located in Dresden, the heart of silicon Saxony in the south east of Germany. HTW was founded in 1992 being the second largest university in the area. The combination of technology, business and art is characterising the scientific environment and the academic life. Facilitating 8 faculties, 180 full professors and more than 4800 students the university is large enough to realise interdisciplinary project work and teaching with high degree of synergy effects in practice. On the other hand the moderate size allows still the professors to care personally about the individual student. Numerous new laboratories, a highly sophisticated computing centre, an excellent research service are characterising the research environment.
Besides teaching the HTW is establishing a centre of applied sciences, research and development for industrial partners. National and international well known departments are the automotive research laboratory and the research laboratory for technical electrostatics. Since 1998 a centre for applied research and technology is existing at HTW (ZAFT e.V.). There specialists from different areas such as construction, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering work together towards highly innovative system concept solutions. HTW is represented in European Technology Platforms, such as eMobility and is active editor in European standardisation in ETSI TG31c as well as active contributor in European Frequency Regulation in CEPT ECC.
HTW contributes the integration of UWB (WiMedia) for high data rate video transmission. Furthermore coexistence to WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e) and LTE will be a key task to provide DAA mechanisms for radio access in the background of an existent OLT node, where both systems are connected and information for coexistence can be exchanged over there. For that purpose HTW will be the leader of WP3. HTW will also work actively in this focus within ETSI TC RRS and in ETSI ERM TGBBRA (merge of TG31a and TG31C).
