The grand opening of Hannover Messe 2016
on Sunday was based entirely on the topic of “Integrated Industry – Discover Solutions!”
. In a spectacularly choreographed performance, seven LBR iiwa
robots will visually depict the five flagship themes at Hannover Fair over five acts: Digital Factory, Industrial Supply, Industrial Automation, Research & Technology, Energy.
Humans and robots become colleagues during the performance. They work hand in hand and complement each other with their respective assets. A harmonious dance between the robots and humans will convey this partnership to the guests. In terms of agility, the LBR iiwa is on a par with its dancing partners, thanks to its seven axes.
Surrounded by a curved, LED-based stage backdrop, the KUKA robots and their human dancing partners will find themselves in an imposing, digital setting. This application is the product of a cooperative project with IBG, XPION and Deutsche Messe AG.
