Online-Event: 10th Robotics Congress – smart manufacturing of the future
The thematic focus of the anniversary event will be on artificial intelligence, high-tech meets ease of use and programming, machine learning and human-robot collaboration & safety.
Top-class expert presentations will show which technical prerequisites must be met for the optimal use of robots in the smart manufacturing of the future.
What opportunities do AI-based approaches open up in process automation and robotics? What steps are needed to transform modern algorithms into value-creating practical applications in order to fully exploit the potential of AI?
In the future, it will be important to combine intuitive operation with high-tech. Machine learning and AI will play a key role here. The technology must be integrated in the robot so that the user is not aware of it and can benefit from it at the same time.
Sensors & Vision
The robot is inherently blind and stupid. Only sensors and cameras turn it into an intelligent machine that finds its way around the process. It also makes it possible to reach into the box, a special application that is ubiquitous in the automotive sector.
HRC & Safety
The era of cobots has gained tremendous momentum. The models are designed to work together with the worker. The topic of safety plays a central role in this application and should not make potential users shy away from a first use.
Get in touch with the future of robotics and don’t miss this event.
Due to the current situation, the congress will only take place online as a live stream!!!
