What will the car of the future look like?
How will adequate charging infrastructure be developed?
Will autonomous driving make our roads safer and more efficient?
These are the types of questions that come to mind when talking about the future of mobility. Less of these questions, however, focus on the future of corresponding production. It’s a field that’s ripe for innovation—and the conversation is already starting: Held in Lower Saxony, Mobility Startup Day is a celebration of future-oriented innovation that brings together startups, investors, and leaders in automotive production. This year’s festival took place on December 14th in the city of Hildesheim, Germany, and focused sustainable approaches to production and propulsion in automation.
While automation is widely seen as a solution to manufacturing challenges, the increased use of industrial robots has led to new challenges. More robots deployed on the floor means more data accumulated, and it ends in rapidly increasing complexity of modern manufacturing plants. And complexity is the perfect breeding ground for hidden errors. It’s a growing challenging for the automation industry, and manufacturing as a whole: Already over 3 million industrial robots are being used in production lines around the world, with more and more installed each day.
These are exactly the kind of challenges that RoboLive® was designed to address. Through five main services—process visualization, path calibration, vehicle-0 determination, software overview, and robot documentation—RoboLive® offers a window into robotic processes and a single source of truth for even the most complex manufacturing operations. In front of more than two hundred spectators, including the Lower Saxony Minister of Economics Olaf Lies, our team led a conversation on the effects of process visualization in everyday production and the future digital twin technology.
Mobility Startup Day marked the final appearance for the RoboLive® team in 2022, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end the year. In addition to our own presentation, the event featured networking opportunities and a full roster of discussions led by local manufacturing professionals.
We would like to thank Automotive Agentur Niedersachsen, Startup Niedersachsen, Entrepreneurship Hub and Wirtschaftsförderung Hildesheim for hosting this event and giving our team the opportunity to share insights.
