One of the show highlights was the presentation of the ROBOTICS AWARD 2013. It was the third time the prize for applied robot solutions has been presented by the organizers of Hanover Fair, in cooperation with the German trade journal Industrieanzeiger and Germany's Robotation Academy for robotics and automation. The prize is awarded for robot-based solutions that are especially useful in practical applications. This year the judges chose KUKA's conceptual exhibit "moiros". The display featured a robotic application capable of flexibly handling extremely large components, such as the ten-meter wind turbine rotor blade used at HMI. The conceptual vehicle consists of a KUKA omniMove platform, a KR QUANTEC console robot including KR C4 controller and autonomous navigation software.
