Virtual Guided Tour

Our flagships established new and innovative formats to ensure the transfer of knowledge and enter into dialogue with wide a wide variety of social groups.

More than 20 innovative demonstrators and test systems in our application center illustrate the current state of logistics research for the no.1 future industry

Within the context of our virtual tour we give you an insight into the future of production and logistics, for example:

... how autonomous transport vehicles can organize themselves highly dynamically with up to 10m/s in a swarm, accept orders independently, negotiate and link up for transport orders thanks to artificial intelligence.

... how virtual reality (VR) can be used to provide new employees with the knowledge they need quickly and without disrupting ongoing operations and how such virtual reality learning environments can become part of a training, further education and planning room for logistics experts.

... how smart glasses and scanner gloves help retail workers carry out the daily stock control quicker and more economically.

... how digital assistance systems in intelligent shelves support employees in the picking process.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our virtual tour.
