Hannover Messe is the world’s most important industrial show. With billions of sensors in the world connecting equipment to IT systems, and artificial intelligence producing insight about their performance and operating environment, we are entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In the years ahead, every aspect of work and life will be transformed by cognitive systems.

Where physical meets digital: Industry 4.0 with Watson

Where physical meets digital” – Everything, everywhere is connected. All connected ‘things’ generate huge amounts of data in real-time. The marriage of the physical and digital worlds provides new levels of visibility that matter.

IBM Watson IoT is uniting the digital and physical worlds to advance Industry 4.0. The IBM digital twin strategy bridges engineering and operations to manage a complete business life cycle, with solutions for product design, engineering, manufacturing and asset management, with security built in. IBM Watson IoT cognitive capabilities generate insights that enable continuous improvement – accelerating time-to-market, improving asset utilization and creating new revenue streams.

IBM will be front and center at the event showcasing innovations around Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, and Digital Twin.

Top reasons NOT to miss IBM coverage at Hannover Messe, 2017

Hannover Messe attendees will experience IBM through an end-to-end approach to IoT – learning how IBM is enabling integration across the product lifecycle with capabilities such as IBM Watson, IoT for Manufacturing, security and others.

  1. Discover how IBM integrated digital twin is bringing the digital and physical worlds together, creating a virtual representation across the product lifecycle, and providing continuous flow of feedback, data and insight.
  2. Hear how cognitive IoT technologies, including cognitive manufacturing, predictive maintenance, and security can prevent production delays and improve production line performance, reduce equipment downtime, and improve worker safety (to name a few).
  3. Network with and learn from thought leaders, IBM Business Partners and industry experts who are using these solutions to drive real business results and dramatically change the way we live and work.

Visit the IBM booth to experience the fourth industrial revolution

Your Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) journey begins in Hall 7, Booth C18 where there will be experts on hand to guide you through the latest innovations at your own pace. Visit IBM at Hannover Messe to witness first-hand how IBM solutions integrate the physical and digital worlds to deliver competitive advantage. Through interactive showcases and customized experiences, visitors will be able to explore IBM Watson IoT technologies.

Here is just a sampling of what visitors can expect:

Cognitive Energy with Woodside      

Woodside uses Watson to predict and prevent catastrophes. Experience how Australia’s largest independent oil and gas company, Woodside, is scaling the knowledge of engineers working in control rooms 70 miles offshore.

Machine 4.0 with Schaeffler

Schaeffler uses IBM Cloud and Watson IoT to connect and transform. Learn how Schaeffler is digitizing every aspect of its business from its supply chain, through to manufacturing, sales and after-sales service.

Adaptive robotics with KUKA

Kuka is using IBM Watson IoT to deliver a quantum leap in productivity. Interact with adaptive robotics that are helping to develop personalized products and services, improving operations and reducing costs for manufacturers in Industry 4.0.

Smart Buildings with KONE

KONE is using IBM Watson IoT to make elevators and escalators smarter. Take a ride in the lift to see how KONE is connecting and remotely monitoring millions of buildings and cities worldwide.

Connected Vehicle with accelerated security

IBM is using a comprehensive approach to security. Drive with confidence in this connected SmartCar and understand how IBM is winning the race to vehicle integrity and data privacy across every aspect of IoT.

Digital Twin with Watson

IBM Digital Twin uses Watson to marry the physical and digital worlds. Learn how digital twin creates multiple views of products by bringing together various ‘digital threads’ and data streams that can be tailored to the needs of a particular user – from products to operations.

Cognitive Factory with IBM

The cognitive factory utilizes cognitive computing to diagnose and fix equipment failures on the spot. Watch how photo recognition identified the root cause of the failure and how natural language guides users of this mobile app through the resolution steps.
