17 meters long, 35 tons heavy – a truck for science.In June 2019, the CeTI truck invited the general public to bring them closer to science. For many, the Tactile Internet is merely a term for an abstract subject. At the truck, people were able to try out very simple examples to see what it’s really all about. How can you get robots to follow your movements? How can you stack building blocks together with them? How can you make the difference between 4G and 5G visible? Lots of interactive application examples let old and young immerse themselves in use cases from medicine, industry and the Internet of Things.

Project within the framework of the “Dresdner Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften”

As part of the “Dresdner Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften“, the truck was open on June 14, 2019 on Mommsenstraße between Alter Mensa and Helmholtzstraße. During the Long Night of Science, Dresden’s universities, non-university research institutions and science-related companies open their buildings, laboratories, lecture halls and archives to the public. Visitors can experience science and technology, research and innovation, art and culture in a variety of lectures, experiments, guided tours, exhibitions and films.

The Truck Tour continued at the Postsplatz from June 17 to 18, 2019, and on June 19 and 20 at the computer science parking lot in front of the Heidebroek-Bau.
