Rome, 17 September 2019 - Comau will participate in the Forum "The future of knowledge, companies and workers in transformation", which will be held at the Confindustria Technical Auditorium (Viale Tupini) by Fondimpresa - the inter-professional fund of Confindustria, CGIL, CISL and UIL. The event - from September 18-19 in Rome - is an opportunity for Comau to let the public know and experience the potential of its new technologies for teaching, following its approach called HUMANufacturing (human manufacturing), which puts the worker at the center of the production system and of the transformation that characterizes the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It is an important opportunity to show how training is fundamental to keep up with the evolution dictated by the digital transformation.
Thanks to this initiative, 500 representatives of institutions, business and education have the opportunity to learn about and use the e.DO robot. They will come together to take on an interesting technological challenge that will allow them to understand how robotics can be compelling and easy to understand.
During the day, Donatella Pinto - Comau Head of Human Resources - and Ezio Fregnan - Comau Academy Director & HR Training Manager - will give a general presentation about Comau. Following, the competition, for which Comau provides 50 e.DO robots, will begin for 500 participants divided into work groups of 10 people. Each team will be given an e.DO robotic arm and a tablet, which acts as a control interface. Participants will be provided with brief, simple instructions on how to move and program e.DO. Teams will be invited to write a program to have the robot move simple objects, with the aim of trying to find the best solution among the many possible. The video of the execution of the program created by each group is sent to a Comau jury that will award the team that has achieved the best results.
Donatella Pinto points out: "Comau is proud to talk about some of the most innovative and successful projects of the company in the context of an important event, promoted by Fondimpresa. Strengthened by a long and consolidated know-how in the industrial field, characterized by over 45 years of presence in the global market, Comau feels the social responsibility to contribute to the spread of a "human-centric" corporate culture and technological knowledge, thanks to the collaboration of companies, universities and training institutions, but above all thanks to young people, who are the real drivers of the digital transformation taking place."
"We are proud to have Comau bring a technological challenge that will involve our guests for our 15 year celebration. Too often, technology is perceived as something distant from us, but it is incorporated into unsuspected aspects of our daily life. The participating companies now know how to use their resources effectively, but the challenge that awaits us, and which we do not intend to lose, is to accompany companies and workers in the digital transformation process that makes skills related to technological innovation increasingly necessary and the creation of new tools that allow the financeability of these training interventions," says the President of Fondimpresa Bruno Scuotto.
