The following exhibits will be presented at the SafetyWeek:

  • EDAG CityBot: The EDAG CityBot is a multi-functional, fully autonomous robot vehicle with swarm intelligence for the Smart City. Thanks to a large number of backpack and trailer modules, the EDAG CityBot can be configured as required, e.g. as a passenger cell, cargo carrier, city cleaning and waste disposal unit, or for park maintenance.
    In conjunction with the platform technology for the Internet of Things (IoT), the EDAG CityBot offers not only new, autonomous transport and working vehicles, but also possible new business models. More information: www.edag-citybot.com
  • Mobile 3D scanner for hardware testing: With the hand-held scanner, objects - even those that cannot be reached with conventional measuring devices - can be scanned and digitised within minutes. The EDAG Group uses the 3D scanner in the most varied areas of vehicle safety, for example in overall vehicle testing, passenger protection or child safety. Further information about the various applications can be found on the EDAG Tech Blog.
