Set for July 31-Aug. 3, the new exhibition will focus on “intelligent” technologies, products and equipment, with displays showing how they can be applied to manufacturing processes, said Cho Yung-tsai, chairman of the Taiwan Automation Intelligence and Robotics Association (TAIROA).
The planned exhibition signifies “the beginning of Taiwan's automation intelligence and robotics era,” he said.
The idea for the new event came from the positive results of the annual Taipei International Industrial Automation Exhibition and Robot Show, which takes place in August each year, and the desire to showcase Taiwan's advances in the automation intelligence sector, Cho said.
This year's industrial automation event, which combined two shows, attracted over 500 exhibitors and 71,000 visitors during its run from Aug. 28-31, he said.
