Fachtagung: Kollaborative Robotik at IHK Gießen-Friedberg

Geschäftsstelle Gießen Industrie- und Handelskammer Gießen-Friedberg -PlenarsaalLonystraße 7 35390 Gießen

7 November 2018 - 7 November 2018

In the course of our society's digitisation associated with Industry 4.0, not only does the much-discussed "autonomous driving" play a role, but also, to a very special degree, the "autonomous work" and the human-robot collaboration (MRC) directly connected to it.

Following the positive response of the first symposium last year, IHK Hessen innovativ, VDI-Mittelhessen and VDE Rhein-Main are now hosting a regional follow-up event with this 2nd symposium on collaborative robotics. This year's focus is on Safety and Artificial Intelligence AI.

With this continuation series, the speakers cover a wide range from security certification to sensor technology to the use of collaborative robots (Cobots) both in industry and in the personal service environment, for example, in hospitals or nursing homes.

The concluding podium discussion then directly picks up on the expected changes in our working world and places the Cobot as a future colleague at the forefront.
