The joint project of SZTAKI and the Fraunhofer Society, the EPIC Center of Excellence, was also featured in the prestigious exhibition held from 12 to 16 April 2021.

Due to the pandemic, the Hannover Messe industrial fair was held online this year. The exhibition, which has existed since 1947, also featured a joint project of SZTAKI, the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and the German Fraunhofer Society, the EPIC Center of Excellence in Production Informatics and Management.

The event featured a three-minute image film about the robots and technical demonstrations of the project's laboratory in Győr. The short film features robotic arms capable of packing and assembling, as well as AGVs transporting workpieces back and forth between workstations.

Not only was the film available for viewing at the online event, but a virtual map provided information on other stations in the EPIC project. The development of local cyber-physical manufacturing system demos is based on the possibilities of solving manufacturing problems and the future-oriented aspirations of the Industry 4.0 process.

One of the outstanding results of the project is the joint project company of EPIC InnoLabs Kft., SZTAKI and the Fraunhofer Research Network in Germany.
