Located in the immediate vicinity of the automation halls at HANNOVER MESSE, Hall 19 is the place where Logistics 4.0 and Industry 4.0 come together. This is where specialists from heavy industry and the intralogistics sector will appear on all five days of the show at the "Logistics 4.0 Forum", with the focus on the opportunities for integrating production and logistics.
A key focus will consist of mobile robot solutions, which are increasingly common in production and warehouse settings and are key to making work easier for humans. And the charge carriers have also become mobile, driving autonomously through warehouse or production buildings and conveniently communicating with one another based on gestures generated by wearables. More topics are the blockchain, IT security, human-robot communication, digital shadows, artificial intelligence, 3-D printing, intralogistics drones, platforms and agile project.
"The active sharing of knowledge and experience between production and logistics is going to bring new ideas and findings for both sides. In Hannover we will be putting both worlds together and showing how, on the basis of best-practice examples, the increasing complexity of logistics processes can be kept manageable in today's digital economy."
