To foster innovation and collaboration between IndX partner organizations, sharing knowledge and learnings is one of the key factors to develop IndX. In February, the competence team for connectivity and autonomy gathered to learn more about AI and the future of Internet of Things.

The IndX competence team for autonomy and connectivity met for a meetup where the future challenges of our partners Husqvarna Group, Saab, Toyota Material Handling, and Väderstad AB were presented.

Väderstad AB discussed the challenge of enhancing machine autonomy by integrating sensors and AI in machinery and in-field operations. Toyota Material Handling Europe shared an intriguing perspective on their process of collaborating with startups. Saab explored upcoming challenges and attempts in both aeronautics and dynamics, while Husqvarna Group presented advancements in chainsaw and auto-mover technologies.

Fredrik Löfgren, representing both Linköping University and Dyno Robotics, delivered a thought-provoking presentation on the potential and risks associated with AI. This sparked engaging group discussions, leading up to our second speaker, Oscar Spaak from Linköping Science Park, who provided a presentation of generative AI; engaging participants in an interactive AI simulation. 

Tomas Westlund from Rise concluded the day by sharing the latest trends in IoT, offering us a glimpse into the future of Internet of Things.

The event was rounded off with a lunch, providing an excellent opportunity for attendees to reflect on the day’s discussions and topics. We are eagerly anticipating our next meet-up, where we will once again bring together experts from our partner organizations to share knowledge and experiences, fostering a community of learning and innovation.
