The Role of Man in the Smart Factory: Strong individuals. Unbeatable as a team.
What is the role of analog humans in digital factories? It is an important one – as the special show by VDMA Robotics + Automation suggests. The interaction between humans and machines will increase in the future to achieve a whole new level of performance.
It is human dexterity combined with digital assistance systems that will enable the required zero-defect quality in manual assembly processes for the first time. Technology will be worn on the body: in form of a communicating wristband or augmented reality glasses. Humans and machines will communicate intuitively. Workplaces will become more ergonomic and attractive than ever before – including those in your company.
Example exhibit: the smart work glove by ProGlove. Its integrated bar code scanner was specifically designed for the requirements of production and logistics. The assistance system “Schlauer Klaus” (Smart Klaus) by Optimum datamanagement solutions uses digital guidance and machine vision to achieve zero defects and productivity increases of 20%.
Kinemic presents a wristband that can be used to control applications and processes through gestures, while the Chairless Chair exoskeleton by Noonee provides a mobile seat. The assembly assistance system Active Assist by Bosch Rexroth improves process reliability; the mobile learning platform MLS by the Foundation for Young Mechanical Engineering Talent supports mechanical engineering trainees; and the YuMi Robot by ABB shows how man and machine can literally work hand in hand.
