The future is now! Our lives are more and more influenced by technology. But where does it lead us to?
Is technology the way out of a blackout? What can mechatronics contribute?
A lot of applications have the potential to be more energy-efficient, yet the savings should be more than newly generated consumption. The total cost of ownership often drives the innovation but what does this mean for applications where energy efficiency is only a minor goal?
This interactive mechatronics seminar joins a couple of experts in order to share and discuss their vision. The sectors of application can be various, e.g. transportation, process industry or industrial production.
The seminar shall conclude with a panel discussion and a network drink.
This event targets company researchers, developers, management as well as academics and government
