60 partners took part in the third annual ‘Booster Day PSA‘, held at the Poissy plant in Greater Paris, which posed 12 technological challenges for the ‘Plant of the Future’.
The partners ranged from suppliers, integrators, start-ups and laboratories to schools, research institutes and public organisations, all of which have a major role to play in shaping the future plant.
The company posed 12 technological challenges and 30 demonstrators were built. Working as a consortium, the partners came up with concrete solutions to the manufacturing challenges posed by the Group.
ZF is the first company in Germany to receive official approval for automated drone flights over factory premises. A drone prototype has recently started flying spare parts such as sensors or control cards from the central warehouse to workshops.
As soon as the test flights are complete and drones properly deployed, such flights will relieve vehicle traffic at the plant and save time on the up to one kilometre-long delivery routes that are often on the upper floors of buildings.
In the long term, packages could even be delivered outside of factory premises, for example to facilitate package delivery in residential areas that are difficult to access.
