Hannover Messe 2019

As this year’s Hanover Fair which was focused on how AI is shaping the transformation of the production and energy industries, the startups from the ABB accelerator program pitched their solutions at ABB’s booth during a special event in front of ABB experts, customers, and partners.

With the presence of Frank Duggan, President Europe Region and Hans-Georg Krabbe, Country Managing Director of ABB in Germany, the event marked an excellent teaser for the final demo day later in May in Berlin, during which the startups will present the final results of their collaboration projects and one of the startups will be selected as winner by a jury. Amongst the startups who pitched in Hanover was Vathos Robotics, a Dusseldorf, Germany-based startup which deploys computer vision and machine learning for applications in robotics and factory automation.

“The opportunity to discuss our technology here at this pitch event and get exposed to customers is an excellent opportunity to get first-hand feedback”, said Philipp Kuepper, CEO of Vathos Robotics. “Working with ABB as one of the leading robotics companies has significantly helped us to drive our product development roadmap forward and test our solution in a new use case.”
