Technology Hub - Robot Hub fieramilanocity, dal 7 al 9 giugno 2016

posted Feb 11, 2016, 5:35 AM by Riguzzi Fabrizio

Technology Hub: dove l’innovazione tecnologica incontra l’impresa

A fieramilanocity, dal 7 al 9 giugno 2016, in arrivo droni civili, robot collaborativi, stampanti 3D, materiali del futuro e soluzioni per l’internet delle cose


Milano, 10 novembre 2015 – Droni che sorvolano i cieli come fossero dischi volanti per mappare e monitorare il territorio, robot in grado di collaborare con l’uomo nelle attività industriali, artigianali e assistenziali, sensori ultra-performanti con interfacce naturali (cognitive) che potranno vedere e percepire l’ambiente che li circonda capendo le intenzioni dell’utilizzatore, stampanti 3D in grado di integrarsi ai processi produttivi esistenti contribuendo a renderli più efficienti e performanti.
I dispositivi tecnologici, dai film di fantascienza, si sono spostati nella realtà compiendo una rivoluzione che sta modificando l’intero processo lavorativo, come conferma l’ultimo rapporto McKinsey  secondo  cui,  per  ogni  posto  di  lavoro  perso,  la  tecnologia  ne  crea  2,6.  Una trasformazione che dal 7 al 9 giugno 2016 sarà possibile toccare con mano a Technology Hub- l’evento professionale delle tecnologie innovative per il tuo futuro, nato per mettere in contatto il mondo imprenditoriale con i fornitori delle nuove tecnologie e offrire numerose opportunità di business e networking. L’appuntamento fieristico, promosso da Senaf e in programma  a  fieramilanocity,  sarà  composto  da  sei  settori:  3DPrint,  Additive Manufacturing, Droni, Elettronica e IoT, Material, Robot.
Tra questi, l’area Robot Hub darà ampio spazio a un’industria, quella robotica, che con più di 8,6 milioni di robot esistenti risulta essere il comparto in più rapida crescita in tutto il mondo e con molteplici campi di applicazione che vanno oltre l’automazione industriale - tra cui spiccano sicurezza e medicale - grazie alle ultime sperimentazioni in materia di robot di servizio e collaborativi.
“Nei prossimi dieci anni potremo avere robot in grado di collaborare con l’uomo - afferma Giorgio Metta, Direttore dell’iCub Facility dell’Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - Ci potranno essere i primi androidi domestici, con i quali potremo comunicare e a cui affideremo lo svolgimento di alcune attività semplici, oppure cui chiederemo supporto per l’assistenza agli anziani, o alle persone malate, in nostra assenza. Saranno quindi robot che comprendono la nostra socialità ed emozioni, sebbene a un livello semplice, e capaci di muoversi all’interno delle nostre case in autonomia.”
Un cambiamento a 360 gradi che sta modificando nel profondo abitudini e processi produttivi, e che Technology Hub metterà in mostra presentando ai professionisti, nel vasto panorama disponibile, le ultime tipologie di droni esistenti nell’area Droni Hub, nonché gli utilizzi più interessanti. 


“La tendenza più significativa che caratterizza l'industria dei droni è il passaggio, sia da parte del pubblico che del privato, dall’impiego nelle operazioni militari e di difesa all'uso civile - commenta Luciana De Fino, Presidente dell’Associazione Airdroni - Ad oggi questa tecnologia produce risultati stupefacenti in termini di rapporto costo-opportunità in settori come l’agricoltura, l’energia, l’intrattenimento, la sicurezza, ed il monitoraggio ambientale.”
“Un trend destinato a crescere e ad avere impatti positivi sull’intero comparto ICT – continua Luciana De Fino - Il valore del mercato dei droni civili e commerciali secondo gli osservatori mondiali aumenterà, tra l’anno corrente ed il 2020, con un tasso annuo di crescita composto pari al  19%. Nonostante i  freni normativi, le  questioni relative alla sicurezza, e  le  persistenti preoccupazioni sulla privacy notiamo, attraverso la nostra Associazione, l’interesse dei nostri imprenditori. Soprattutto sul fronte degli investimenti in ricerca, le aziende italiane che si dedicano allo sviluppo e commercializzazione di soluzioni, sia hardware sia software, puntano molto su questo settore.”
Dalla robotica su terra al controllo aereo, le scelte di business passano ancor prima attraverso la scoperta dei materiali più all’avanguardia. Per questo, Material Hub sarà lo spazio dedicato all’applicazione di nuove soluzioni legate all’innovazione di prodotto, come i micro e nano materiali, gli eco materiali e il grafene, in grado di rendere oggetti attualmente robusti, come ad esempio gli smartphone, più leggeri e flessibili. Uno scenario che presto vedrà l’introduzione di carta idrorepellente per giornali e imballaggi, cotone antibatterico per i vestiti, tessuti ignifughi e resistenti,  fino  alle spugne  che  assorbono  l’olio  e non  l’acqua  per la pulizia dei mari  dagli inquinanti.
I materiali del futuro saranno protagonisti anche nelle aree 3DPrint Hub e Additive Manufacturing Hub dedicate alla stampa 3D e all’additive manufacturing. Secondo Marinella Levi, Docente del Politecnico di Milano, “tra le potenzialità più spesso ricordate quando si parla di stampa 3D, l’innovazione nei materiali è tra le più rilevanti e attese. La possibilità di disporre di soluzioni nuove, affidabili, sicure, facilmente stampabili, potrà fare la differenza anche nello sviluppo di nuove applicazioni. Basti pensare alla possibilità di disporre, ad esempio, di materiali resistenti agli urti e con caratteristiche di ritiro contenute, così come quelli capaci di condurre il calore e l’elettricità, o quelli compositi rinforzati con particelle metalliche o fibre lunghe, che potranno aprire scenari ed applicazioni in settori che vanno dalla moda alla medicina, dall’artigianato alla nautica, e a molti altri oggi non ancora immaginabili.”
I tre giorni della manifestazione, sviluppata tra spazi espositivi, aree dimostrative, workshop e convegni, case history e presentazioni tecniche, saranno un’occasione per conoscere e vedere dal vivo tutti i comparti dell’innovazione in un unico vero e proprio hub tecnologico. Tra i settori ospitati anche Elettronica e IoT Hub, che darà attenzione ai progressi compiuti in materia di elettronica e Internet delle Cose. 

Technology Hub – Chi siamo
Technology Hub - L’evento professionale delle tecnologie innovative per il tuo futuro è la fiera promossa da Senaf che si terrà a fieramilanocity dal 7 al 9 giugno 2016, dedicata trasversalmente ai nuovi trend tecnologici e alle modalità di business ad essi connesse. Technology Hub si compone di 3DPrint Hub, Additive Manufacturing Hub, Droni Hub, Elettronica e IoT Hub , Material Hub, Robot Hub. Spazi  espositivi,  aree  dimostrative,  workshop  e  convegni,  case  history  e  presentazioni  tecniche contribuiranno a creare un vero e proprio Hub Tecnologico.
