Hub2Move

Hub2Move, a project launched by the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr, is based on the idea of a portable warehouse. The hub of the future – a distribution centre that can be relocated – should be adaptable to changing needs. It should be possible to modify handling, conveying and storage technology in the hub to meet new requirements within days, and to have the complete hub up and running at an entirely new location within weeks

InnoLab

The key theme of Industrie 4.0 and its effects are now being investigated in the new innovation laboratory "Hybrid Services in Logistics" in Dortmund. Within the scope of the application center, the Machine and Systems department is researching new methods and technologies in the area of ​​human-machine interaction and driverless transport vehicles.

»We regard the transfer of logistics knowledge and expertise on a broad front as a major objective of our institute and of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Students who successfully complete this course systematically transfer technologies, models and concepts which we develop at the institute to companies with lasting effect.«
