The application of smartphones and tablets as tools now offers great opportunities for the automotive industry.

Since the 1970s, industrial robots have come with a handheld operating device called a teach-pendant; these units are now obsolete in the eyes of the new generation of robot users that are increasingly making up a large percentage of the industrial workforce.

This webinar will provide an insight into the next-generation devices that will be used to programme, commission, operate and supervise industrial robots in the near future.
