The first of the three nominated projects, ctrlX CORE, represents a flexible and compact, modular, app-based control platform based on the real-time operating system Linux; it is freely configurable. This product facilitates the automation of industrial processes, as the use of standards and web-based engineering throughout makes proprietary software installations superfluous, thus reducing the entry barrier to PLC programming. Further advantages stem from the integration of third-party apps and the option to integrate AI. Bosch Rexroth at HANNOVER MESSE This nomination went to the Han-Modular Domino Module industrial connector, a further development of the existing standard, consisting of two modules which can be flexibly assembled via interlocking. The connector system transmits power, signals, data or compressed air. This means that, for the first time, electrical and pneumatic systems can be transmitted in a single module, thus significantly reducing the required plug connections, installation space and weight. Further savings are achieved through shorter assembly times. Harting at HANNOVER MESSE The third nominated product, TUAKA, is a completely integrated drive for robot applications and automation technology. New features include the gearbox, the motor and the driver with safety functions. Thanks to the product's sensor technology and thermal management, it is suitable for high-precision, sensitive applications in service robotics as well as for interaction with humans. The modular concept and modular systems enable an application-specific configuration of the required hardware. Sumitomo Cyclo Drive at HANNOVER MESSE
