ARENA2036 stands for "Active Research Environment for the Next Generation of Automobiles". The association of prestigious industry and research organizations aims to promote mobility and production of the future. Intralogistics demo in Stuttgart.
To combat climate change and promote alternative mobility approaches, politics, economy, research, and society must collaborate. OMRON aims to help shape this change and has therefore joined the esteemed research campus ARENA2036. This initiative from science and industry aims to transform mobility and production through state-of-the-art technology. OMRON has been an innovator and thought leader in industrial automation for many years and is pleased to provide further impulse as a member of ARENA2036.
OMRON has launched the 5G MIPS project to be set up in the ARENA2036 by the beginning of 2024. In Stuttgart, the intralogistics solution will be presented to interested customers and partners. Partner companies OMRON, NAISE, NOKIA and OMRON Solution Partner WAITKUS will focus on the demands and challenges of the industry in a permanent demo live at the Stuttgart campus. The solution underlines the advantages of the 5G Private Wireless Network for the communication of mobile robot fleets combining technology for virtual fleet management, mobile robotics such as OMRON’s LD-250, cobots such as the TM12 and the control system from NAISE. The solution concentrates on improved human-machine collaboration and more sustainable, seamless, and efficient manufacturing workflows.
