- view on hall B1 of the AUTOMATICA 2010 fair -
Yesterday I was on the AUTOMATICA 2010 fair in Munich, one of the leading exhibitions for robotics, automation and mechatronics. Under the motto "Green Automation" (Engineering sustainability) more than 800 exhibitors showed the latest trends and technologies in the field of industry & service robotics.
