Mission 2030: KUKA makes automation available for everyone

What problem does your product solve?

Within the next ten years, a growing number of people around the world will be working with robots. Automation is one of the most important megatrends of our time – advancing into more and more areas, presenting more and more people with the challenge of automating workflows. KUKA is meeting these needs with its global network and expertise in robotics and flexible, data-driven automated solutions – bringing industrial intelligence all over the planet. Providing easy access to robotics: that is KUKA’s ambitious goal. Making also newcomers benefit from simple operations and intuitive handling of automation solutions, which until now have often been reserved for experts. Therefore, KUKA is presenting the first elements of a preview of an operating system of the future at the digital Hannover Messe 2021.

What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?

Automation will be simpler, more intuitive, and thus available to everyone. This will lower the entry threshold. Programming a robot will then be as easy as working on a PC today.

How can your product contribute to industrial transformation?

Software is more decisive than ever: the real added value no longer lies in a single product, but in digitally connected solution systems. KUKA offers the entire range from robotic components to large, complex connected systems. This requires an operating system that offers access to an entire ecosystem of programs or apps, services and accessories.

Are there any other important points that you can think of?

The coronavirus pandemic has changed supply chains, workflows and production processes. New technologies are helping the industry to adapt to this change in a sustainable way. These include automation, robotics and digitization. They are important elements for a robust and resilient industry.

Event tip: On Monday, 12 April 2021, from 1 p.m. - 1:25 p.m., there will be a discussion with Ranga Yogeshwar, physicist, science journalist and author, on the topic "Why Automation Must Become Available to All."
