FTS Symposium 2022

23. September 2020

FTS-Fachtagung

This year’s AGV conference will take place on Wednesday, 21 September in Dortmund. The lecture programme, which this year has the motto “Proven technology and innovative technologies: Ready for future challenges with AGVs and AMR”, offers informative insights into AGV practice in six lectures. Anwender und Betreiber berichten über ihre Erfahrungen mit Fahrerlosen Transportsystemen und gehen dabei auch auf technische Details der realisierten Lösungen ein.  
At the beginning of the conference, Institute Director Professor Michael ten Hompel will give a keynote speech about his ideas on innovative solutions in intralogistics, focusing in particular on the role of AI and open source software for intralogistics. The afternoon will begin with a panel discussion moderated by Günter Ullrich on the topic of “Autonomous vehicles in intralogistics: are there meaningful use cases?”, where users and FTF manufacturers will exchange their different views.
All important information summarised for you on the flyer of the FTS symposium:

Brief description: As soon as a manufacturing company has several plants, automation projects with AGVs/AMRs often arise independently of each other at different locations. Then it is important to implement successful AGV projects step by step with the help of a common AGV strategy with as little loss as possible. The expert talk will clarify what is behind a successful AGV strategy and for which companies it makes sense.

Short description: A guideline on the topic of autonomy in mobile robots was recently published in the VDI. This creates a comprehensible basis for the buzzword autonomy in the world of AGV/AMR, on the basis of which vehicles can be evaluated with regard to autonomy. In addition, it will be shown that it is important to match the degree of autonomy of a solution with the requirements of the use case. In the panel discussion, the basic ideas of the guide will be explained; there will also be a critical examination of the autonomy functions. Security aspects play an important role in this.

Corona-Concept

Dear reader,

the corona virus has changed all our lives. Of course, we also deal with the changed situation in a very responsible manner and have therefore put our working methods to the test and partly adapted them!

First of all, we can state that we are able to maintain all our consulting services! Our team members have already worked together successfully in the past, although they each work in their own offices spread all over Germany. In addition to the usual communication channels (email, mobile phone and SMS), we have been using common data networking (paperless office) and powerful tools for telephone and web conferences for years.

What is new or different since March 2020?

We question the necessity of every business trip! We do this together with all parties involved, i.e. with our customers, partners and colleagues.

What are the alternatives to a business trip?

When are business trips also useful in Corona times?

What should be taken into account when conducting business trips?

The Corona traffic light for our services:

Green Can be carried out in corona times without problems. If desired, travel can be dispensed with completely.

Yellow These tasks can also be carried out in corona times. However, some trips are unavoidable. This requires appropriate preparations and arrangements.

Red These tasks are not feasible in corona times and must be postponed to later.
