    Hannover Messe ended last month, but DirectIndustry e-magazine wanted to use this 17th issue to take another look at the highlights of the biggest industrial fair in the world.


    Last year, we titled one of our stories “The Rise of Cobotics”. What’s the situation one year later? Our journalists wondered if collaborative robots were still invading the factory floor. They found that a new kind of war is underway: the low-cost cobot war. This confirms that the expected ‘cobolution’ is really taking place.
