“The visitors that come to our stand are very international,” says project manager Thiemo Buchner from AGCO/Fendt Advanced Engineering, describing the atmosphere at the trade fair. “No matter if they were from Turkey, Africa, Japan, India or the USA, up to now everyone was surprised by the small size of the robotic units,” says Thiemo Buchner. The scalability and flexibility of the concept was also very well received. In particular visitors from countries where many things are still done by hand, such as India and Africa, are excited about the MARS Project, because they see the use of small seeding robots as a great simplification of work and as an innovative, but realistic, approach.
On Tuesday, the EU commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Günther Oettinger, visited the Hannover Messe. He was interested in the major topic “Industry 4.0” and the associated massive upheaval of the operating processes within companies, as they prepare themselves to react flexibly and individually to market demands and customer wishes in the future.
The Hannover Messe is held from 25 – 29 April. The MARS Project is located in Hall 7 at Stand E 04.
The MARS research project is funded by the European Union and is part of the Echord++ programme.
