Human-machine choreography at the opening ceremony of Hannover Messe 

Augsburg/Hanover, 24 April 2016 – LBR iiwa lightweight robots dance at the Hannover Messe opening ceremony. In front of almost 3000 guests including Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Barack Obana, dancers and sensitive KUKA LBR iiw robots will turn human-robot-collaboration, a central topic for the factory of the future, into a staged performance.

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.
 
An impressive start to the world`s most important industrial trade fair. From Monday onwards, visitors can then experience the LBR iiwa and KUKA`s solutions for the factories of the future up close at the KUKA booth in Hall 17.
