When a fridge talks to the TV and a mobile phone, digitization has clearly reached our own four walls. However, what about companies? How will Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence affect work? Will there still be people working in the factories at all? These exciting questions are addressed in this issue of driven. Readers will learn what is behind the terms used in connection with the smart factory and why some technologies are taking longer than originally planned.
The editorial staff of driven visited an exoskeleton team preparing for the Cybathlon and took a look at maxon's little-known ceramics department. In addition, technology aficionados will learn more about inductance in iron-core DC motors in part two of our technical article.
