Just as much an indispensable part of our vision of the future as spaceships or flying cars: Robots. Visitors to the Vodafone GigaIndustry area were able to admire several – amid a host of other high-tech applications.
Ameca robot: Uncannily human
Impressive realism: The expressions and gestures of the Ameca robot generated astonished reactions. The machine from Engineered Arts aims to push the boundaries of AI and robotics.
SPOT robot: Four-legged all-rounder
Remarkable mobility makes SPOT the robot the ideal assistant for complex missions. Exploring challenging terrain and gathering data are made easy by a high-resolution camera and a 5G connection.
NAO robot: Reliable companion
Ingenious AI and powerful 5G connectivity make the NAO robot a popular assistant in the education and health sectors. It can recognise words and even facial expressions.
Cocktail maker: The robot barkeeper
The robot arm from Franka Emika can do a lot – and can mix delicious cocktails. A private 5G network ensures the bandwidth required to control the machine and the minimal latency.
5G airship: Network of the future from the skies
It’s not a robot, but a key prerequisite for Industry 4.0 applications of the future: The 5G airship at the OMR shows how the powerful network can also reach remote locations.
VR/AR: Strategic applications for the new industry
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality can provide impressive gaming experiences – as they did here. Just like robotics, they are both also key applications for Industry 4.0.
