The digital integration of industry, energy and logistics is gathering pace, with traditional boundaries between industries breaking down, productivity rising and new business models popping up like mushrooms. In April 2018, Hannover Messe and CeMAT will lend their combined weight to this trend and take Industry 4.0 to the next level.
In every smart factory scenario of the future, the starring roles will be played by two main factors: people and machinery. In order for them to achieve top performance, however, the power of digital integration will need to be leveraged to the fullest.
“The integration of automation technology, IT platforms and machine learning will take Industry 4.0 to the next level,” commented Dr Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe.
