At the DIGITAL X 2019 in Cologne, which took place on 29 + 30 October and which is the hotspot for innovation and digital transformation, EK AUTOMATION presented the fascinating world of intelligent transport robotics to international decision-makers. As a partner of Deutsche Telekom, EK demonstrated the benefits of intelligently networked transport robots for efficient production and logistics. The transport robot FAST MOVE sent live 3D sensor data via the 5G mobile network from the booth to the cloud for data analysis, e.g. in order to realize a dynamic obstacle detection. This solution, which was developed for the first time as part of the 5G prototyping program, impressively demonstrates the possibilities of industrial mobile phone use in the campus network. With the visualization of the transport robot as an interactive digital twin in a simulation-supported 3D point cloud, EK AUTOMATION also underlines its solution competence in digital plant planning.
