The ideas of visionary researchers and startups turn into real applications: in this area, thought leaders from science and industry are showing what the industry of the future might look like. From the cognitive system for quality control to completely new manufacturing methods. Here you will find exactly those solutions that are already relevant for the industry of tomorrow. Particular attention is paid to startups, topics on new technologies and work 4.0 as well as career topics and interface topics in the field of innovation culture.
From Production Processes In Factories To City-Friendly Mobility
At the Hannover Trade fair, industry will be presenting future key technologies. Topics of this year are the mobile communications standard 5G and autonomous systems. Smart robots, new business models, fast internet: the Hannover Trade Fair, as an innovation platform for networked production processes of the future, is attempting to present new trend topics again this year. This time it is mainly about the question of how the previously collected large amounts of data in the factory of the future can be used for cost-effective and flexible production. Key technology is artificial intelligence and the new 5G mobile communications standard.
Factory Of The Future
Where a year ago, avatars were still undecided on a stage, now autonomously moving production units or transport vehicles are rolling and bringing in materials: the factory of the future. The vehicles are inductively charged, making high flexibility in production possible. The modules exchange information about 5G to a certain extent the “nervous system” of the factory of the future.
Not only do robots make work easier, they are also associated with fears: Jobs can be eliminated and people in the factory become redundant. The companies do not see it that way. “The employees are still in the center of attention, and that will remain so for a long time.”
