Intelligent robots are a critical element in the digitalization of factories (otherwise known as Industry 4.0) as they realize new gains in productivity and worker safety. As manufacturing demands increase in both volume and flexibility, these robots and cobots require advancements in sensing, safety, communications, power and size efficiencies. This session will introduce these technologies in addition to condition based monitoring and predictive maintenance solutions.

Attendees will learn:

  • Latest trends in Industrial Robotics
  • Key challenges facing robotics manufacturers and suppliers within the development ecosystem
  • Key technologies and solutions enabling and accelerating robotic integration within Industry 4.0 and SMEs
