INTELLIGENT MEASURING TECHNOLOGY FOR THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE
Measuring devices are indispensable in the world of Industrie 4.0. Production measuring technology already plays an important role in the smart factory, while networked measuring technology is crucial in digital production. An analysis.
MACHINE LEARNING: A JOURNEY TO THE YEAR 2030
How will mechanical engineering evolve in the years to come? Experts are clear about one thing: Self-learning systems are essential when it comes to securing competitiveness and the advancement of Industrie 4.0. The VDMA "Machine Learning 2030" report explores what the future may hold if the development of artificial intelligence is advanced or slowed down.
HUMANS AND ROBOTS WORK HAND IN HAND
Right next to the worker, a robot rearranges components for a common rail high-pressure injection pump - without a safety fence. The inventiveness and creativity of Bosch researchers made this possible by developing a sensitive artificial skin for the robot.
THE CONNECTED WORLD OF TOMORROW
Free your mind: once a week, hundreds of Bosch researchers have a fixed appointment with their brains. Sometimes they think all on their own, sometimes with colleagues. This period [called concept time] gives them a chance to work on things they normally would not do. That is how big ideas emerge, new inventions become reality. This is how modern research and development works in Renningen, Bosch’s new center for research and advance engineering. VDMAimpulse was allowed to take a look behind the scenes.
“CURRENT EU LEGISLATION ONLY HAS LIMITED SUITABILITY FOR INDUSTRIE 4.0”
Hartmut Rauen, Deputy Executive Director VDMA, thinks that digital technologies will fundamentally change the way our society produces and consumes. In an interview with VDMAimpulse, he explains why the changing technological possibilities will also necessitate changes in the political framework.
