Mapping advances in robotics technology for manufacturing emerged by the implementation of intelligent technologies in the industry, and understanding the new energy landscape will help us adapt and react more quickly and effectively to fast changing environment inside manufacturing plants. New production mechanisms, advanced technology and robotics development bring opportunities, which are ground-breaking in many areas. Additive manufacturing shifts the boundaries of medicine, architecture and other areas. Should the additive manufacturing help to sav the lives by creating artificial organs? Is this our future? How key AI technologies, deployment of edge, fog & cloud computing across factories and the utilisation of data analytics can predict machine failures. This discussion will focus on predictive maintenance of production in the context of Manufacturing Engineering.
