Connectivity, charging robots, artificial intelligence – the Frankfurt Festhalle will be transformed into a hotspot for future trends at Automechanika. Also, products and solutions awarded with the renowned Automechanika Innovation Awards are showcased.
The road to the future
It is in the Festhalle of all places, the oldest exhibition hall on the grounds at over 100 years in age, that leading manufacturers, suppliers and start-ups will be presenting solutions for future mobility. What will the car of the future look like, and what will it be able to do? What form of energy will drive the car of the future? How will new developments impact workshops and their equipment? Find out at the Workshop of the future in the Frankfurt Festhalle. The workshop of the future will be smart – and connected. New software solutions and augmented reality not only make it easier to conduct diagnostics within the workshop, but with the assistance of artificial intelligence they can even assist sales processes.
