Expert Talks with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jacob
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dirk Jacob is an expert in production automation and robotics. He conducts research in the field of industrial robot applications and analyzes the role of robots in human-robot cooperation. As a mentor in the fields of industrial robotics and mechatronics, he is an important driver of innovation in scientific research and practical application.
Expert insight into the production environment of the future
It is conceivable that the success of a world in which everything is connected to everything will be determined by its ability to adapt. In the future, manufacturing companies will need to be able to adapt their technical infrastructure to new market circumstances quickly and flexibly.
In expert videos, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dirk Jacob provides information on the megatrends that will have ramifications for the production environment of the future. He also explains the significance of and correlation between three key factors that enable companies to set up their production systems in a sustainable manner.
Technological progress does not take place in a vacuum. Cutting-edge technologies can only reach their full potential if they are combined effectively with the key factors “people” and “adaptation”.
The production environment of the future in theory and practice
The research and development activities carried out by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jacob have yielded key findings on how to improve the way we deploy industrial robots and how to increase the degree of cooperation between humans and robots. As a result, he and his team were presented with a special award by the German Mechanical Engineering Association (VDMA) for the innovative study concept “Digital and Regional” not to mention the “2018 Award for Outstanding Teaching” for the didactic concept of the Systems Engineering degree course.
As a driving force for innovation in scientific research and industrial application, he is well aware that future success is determined by decisions made today. In view of this, every corporate decision should be made with the future in mind and incorporated into a holistic strategy.
