Online Event

In cooperation with

Robots play a key role in fields such as industry automation, harsh environment and medicine, and are one of the symbols of the digitalization and Industry 4.0. In this meeting, we will concentrate on the needs for the robotics industry concerning sensor development, novel artificial-intelligence technologies, special high-resolution vision systems in order to serve the industry of today and tomorrow.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
