IK4 participates at Basque Industry 4.0

11/26/2018 |<img src="http://www.ik4.es/upload/noticias/img/BIND4_0-stand-IK4.jpg" data-link="" /> Presenting its capabilities in digitisation applied to industry, the IK4 Technological Alliance stood out once more at the last edition of the Basque Industry 4.0 event, held last 26 November at the Bilbao Palacio Euskalduna.

At the forum, IK4 had a stand installed in the exhibition area and took part in the conference programme with talks on scientific and technological fields such as artificial intelligence applied to industrial manufacturing, the latest tendencies in robotics, and the most significant advances in sensor technology.

Specifically, researchers from technological centres forming part of the Alliance – IKERLAN, TEKNIKER and IDEKO – shared their knowledge on the uses of artificial intelligence in the field of machine tools and industry, and the interaction and communication channels between devices using artificial intelligence and people. 

The accumulated experience of GAIKER, CEIT, IKERLAN and TEKNIKER in the field of sensor technology also stood out during the event through presentations dealing with magnetic techniques for on-line quality control and the development of smart components, the design of heterogeneous sensor systems for integration into industrial processes, and the keys to developing solid, energetically independent sensor systems.

Lastly, TEKNIKER and IDEKO experts explained the latest novelties in robot path tracking and autonomous navigation, the most recent tendencies in mechatronic concepts and the new functions deriving from increased robotics precision.

Organised by the Basque Government through the SPRI Group, Basque Industry 4.0, which marks its fifth edition, has become the most outstanding event for Industry 4.0 in Euskadi.
