About the Conference

For two whole days at ZAL Innovation Days 2019, it’s all about Robotics & Advanced Automation — two of the most relevant topics of our time. Human-machine collaboration and automated systems have enormous potential. What impact are they already having on aviation today? What impact will they have on our future working life? These questions will be interactively explored in keynote addresses and workshops. Complementing the conference programme will be an exhibition, guided tours, plenty of breakout sessions and an exclusive evening networking event.

General Information

The conference programme is divided into two topic blocks. On the first day, the focus is on human-machine collaboration, with automated systems in the spotlight on day two. Two simultaneous streams focus on the respective daily theme, whilst a permanent accompanying exhibition offers topical practical demonstrations. In addition, guided tours of the state-of-the-art ZAL TechCenter are on offer both days, and there is plenty of space for networking. An undoubted highlight for all participants is the evening event at the end of the first day of the conference.

Focus Day 1: Human-Machine Interactions

Why are assistance systems becoming increasingly important across many industries?

How are robotic assistants being used in manufacturing and maintenance today? What potential do they offer?

Cobots, AGVs, Exoskelette — what systems is aviation turning to?

Focus Day 2: Automated & Autonomous Robots

How is artificial intelligence optimising manufacturing and maintenance processes?

Best practice: Insights into the application of autonomous systems in manufacturing and maintenance.

Autonomous robots in the aviation industry?

Guided Tours

Our guided tours through ZAL TechCenter reveal insight into one of the world’s most advanced research centers of civil aviation. Guides explain to you the concept of ZAL and how the research center boosts innovation in the aviation industry. You will pay visit to our hangars, laboratories and some of our research infrastructures such as:

Acoustics Flight Lab (one of the largest acoustic chambers in Europe)

Virtual Reality Lab

Fuel Cell Lab

Registration can be made at the information desk during the event.
