Visiting AUTOMATICA in Munich

The entry of the New Munich Trade Fair Center

On the 9th of June Prof. Tscheligi and I followed the invitation of the Austrian electronics company KEBA to visit the AUTOMATICA trade fair for automation and mechatronics. It was an impressive nad very well-organized trade fair with 4 huge exhibitor halls presenting industrial robotics as well as state-of-the-art research institutes in the area of robotics and automation.
I was most impressed by a robotic art demonstration of KUKA and the service robotic area, were several service robots navigated through and interacted with the visitors.
