Robotics support for exhibitions
DB Schenker and August Robotics, a Hong Kong based robotics and artificial intelligence company, have established a a partnership. The aim is to assist exhibition companies and venues around the world to make their exhibition build-up processes more reliable, efficient and safe.
August Robotics has developed an autonomous robot that automates the floor marking process in trade show halls. The robot – called Lionel - has the ability to integrate seamlessly into the existing exhibition build-up workflow, improving accuracy and workers safety, whilst also reducing the time required for this labour intensive process.
DB Schenker is supporting August Robotics with consultancy service and business advice. In addition, the German company will provide global logistics services and on-site operational support to the August Robotics team. (mw)
