Intelligent sensors for human-robot collaboration, a flexible test lab for the future power grid, innovative energy storage systems and electric motors: These are some of the research activities presented by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) at Hannover Messe 2018 with this year’s lead theme “Integrated Industry – Connect & Collaborate.” From April 23 to 27, 2018, KIT will present its work at two leading trade shows again: At “Research & Technology” (hall 2, stand B16) and at “Energy” (hall 27, stand K51). The multimodal sensor technology for industrial robots will be presented at the Highlight Tour for the media on April 22nd, starting at noon.


“The energy transition and Industry 4.0 are two major elements of a far-reaching change that makes us face big challenges. At the same time, they give rise to great opportunities for positive and sustainable developments in our society, industry, and environment,” says the President of KIT, Professor Holger Hanselka. “We need appropriate technologies to combine these different elements in a reasonable way. Development and introduction of these technologies require close collaboration of science and industry. I am very happy that KIT – The Research University in the Helmholtz Association will present its innovations at two big stands at Hannover Messe again: innovative processes and technologies for industrial production will be displayed at the leading trade show “Research & Technology.” Future-oriented solutions for energy supply will be presented at the leading trade show ’Energy.’”
