New knowledge will get companies to take part in the fourth industrial revolution

Aarhus University will use a new programme to ensure that knowledge about digitalisation and materials technology will benefit Danish companies. This will prepare them for developing smarter products and production methods, so they can ride the Industry 4.0 wave.

The tiny robot is powered via energy harvested from ultrasonic waves using a piezoelectric device. This will be one of the major engineering challenges in the project, Farshad Moradi explains.
