The majority of our 16 project partners are currently continuing to work on topics related to OPTIMUM in their home offices.
Last week, however, the personal commitment of our Dortmund based project partner Comnovo was required in the Demag Research Factory. Comnovo has equipped the hall with a localization system. This allows completely new assist functions and secure (semi-)autonomous and collaborative work of man and machine.
Needless to say, the applicable safety regulations such as social distancing and the wearing of mouth-and-nose protection were followed.
In addition, Comnovo employees were equipped with a very special safety vest - newly introduced to the market by their parent company Linde. These vests warn by means of optical and acoustic signals as soon as there is a risk of violating the safety distance to be kept.
