dc.description.abstractIn this presentation we will discuss how hard automation in many cases is getting replaced by flexible automation. The ideal factory is no longer a sequence of fixed processing stations, but a swarm of heterogenous stationary and mobile manipulation systems that can be re-configured to produce one-off products in a system that is fully integrated from design to manufacturing. The integration of new sensors, mixed-human-robot interaction, and cloud services offer an opportunity to rethink modern manufacturing.en_US
