Abstract

Pendjari National Park in northern Benin is not only a tourist attraction and an area for the protection of biodiversity, it is also a showcase for participatory management approaches. Since its foundation as an animal protection area in 1954 under French colonial rule, the park has been object of often conflictual but productive negotiations between different groups of neighboring dwellers, such as peasants, herdsmen and hunters, as well as the park administration itself. During 19 months of fieldwork, ethnographic data on conflicts and negotiation processes were collected. Their detailed analyses show how different groups of actors construct the park as a socially relevant entity. Data from historical investigation and an extended case study of the participatory attempts at cooperation between the park administration and local hunters illustrate the social construction of spaces, identities as well as norms, values and institutions: Local hunters consider the park primarily a nowadays illegal hunting ground and a domain of spirits, while park administrators and international development actors declare it a zone of state-protected biodiversity. By showing how the national park and related spaces, identities, norms, values and institutions are socially produced, the analysis contributes to recent debates in the field of human-environment interaction and especially political ecology. Moreover, it offers complex insights and practical recommendations regarding participatory approaches to the management of natural resources and especially national parks.

Abstract

Ideen werden am Anfang gerne in Frage gestellt. Die Macher des StreetScooter sind anders herangegangen, sie haben den Status quo, der sich ihnen bot, in Frage gestellt. Der herkömmliche Innovationsprozess bei der Entwicklung neuer, nachhaltiger Produkte war in ihren Augen viel zu aufwendig und zu teuer. In der Automobilindustrie dauert er viele Jahre und verschlingt Milliarden. Wie ein radikal anderes Innovationsdenken zu bezahlbarer Funktionalität führt, zeigt die rasante Entwicklung eines ungewöhnlichen Unternehmens, das aus der Rheinisch-Westfälisch-Technischen Hochschule Aachen hervorgegangen ist und heute der Deutschen Post DHL gehört. Es ist eine e-mobile Erfolgsstory über ein Fahrzeug, das kundenspezifisch, wirtschaftlich, ökologisch, flexibel, sicher und zuverlässig ist.People love to challenge ideas at the start. The makers of StreetScooter approached things differently: they challenged the status quo they were presented with instead. In their view, the conventional process of innovation in developing new, sustainable products was much too complicated and too expensive. In the automobile industry, this takes many years and costs billions. The rapid development of an unusual company emerging from the RWTH Aachen University and now part of Deutsche Post DHL demonstrates how a radically different innovative thinking leads to affordable functionality, It is an e-mobile success story about a vehicle that is customized, economic, ecological, flexible, safe, and reliable.

Abstract

Power-line communications (PLC) in traction batteries is a promising data bus concept for battery management systems. This work presents a channel modeling approach, as well as an analysis of the PLC channel behavior and noise based on measurements. Furthermore, single-carrier and multi-carrier communication systems are designed, evaluated by simulations, and compared among them.

Abstract

Industrial product development requires close collaboration between experts of several disciplines. Misunderstandings and discussions are inevitable. An integrated visualization of discipline specific conceptual models can foster agreement between experts. This work introduces a three dimensional visualization for integrated conceptual models. Models are arranged in a common 3-D information space. Dependencies are visible and provide a means for interdisciplinary problem solving.

Abstract

The increase in decentralized, volatile electricity generation as result of the German energy system transformation causes congestions in electricity grids. IT networking and coordination of producers and consumers in smart grids promises a solution to these problems. In this context, this work presents an energy management approach that approximates specified, aggregated power profiles. The approach uses power forecasts and flexibilities and takes network restrictions into account.

Abstract

This study assesses the contribution of social software to reduce communication-based innovation barriers. Subject of the examination were global product development projects of a multinational company. By performing a social network analysis and a survey-based inquiry no evidence was found social software could reduce innovation barriers. An empirical investigation exposed a lack of functional fit and diffusion of the social software.
