President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel visit Weidmuller’s Industry 4.0 Cockpit at Hannover Messe.
President Obama and Chancellor Merkel showed great interest in the Industry 4.0 Cockpit at the Weidmuller exhibit. A sample application demonstrated how the central control of a production facility of the future could look. It combined, into a single exhibit, the wide range of Industry 4.0 solutions. The Weidmuller Cockpit exhibited technical systems networking capabilities as well as other integrated solution approaches for customers. The Industry 4.0 solutions on display included applications for industrial analytics, cloud services, energy management, digitalization and networking, as well as data consistency. "The topic of networking in particular," continues Dr. Peter Köhler, "is an extremely exciting field for the USA because of the high level of software competence in the country. During their visit, the two heads of state gained an in-depth insight into the topic of industrial networking at various exhibits. We are proud that we could also make our contribution to their visit."
