At Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial and manufacturing trade fair, the Intel IoT ecosystem showcased everything from augmented reality industrial wearables like the DAQRI smart helmet, to Industry 4.0 factory automation and industrial asset management solutions. The event in Hannover, Germany, attracted more than 190,000 visitors, including U.S. President Barack Obama.
“There’s a lot going on here with Intel technology,” said Intel Internet of Things Group (IoTG) General Manager Chet Hullum. “So we’re excited about the future of automation.”
Here are some of our favorite Industrial IoT solutions from the event. Hear more from Hullum in our short Hannover Messe trends video.
In an example of industrial human augmentation that wowed onlookers, the DAQRI smart helmet is the world’s first industrial wearable human machine interface (HMI) and has a great potential to save lives. Intel technology enables an industrial-grade, 360-degree sensor array with high-definition video; thermal vision sensors for predictive maintenance and enhanced worker safety; 4D augmented reality displays offering an industry-leading field of view; and live equipment data visualization.
