US President Barack Obama visited the Harting Technology Group’s stand at Hannover Messe together with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with the Harting family greeting the two heads of state. The United States is this year's partner country of the Hannover Messe. President Obama was accompanied by a large delegation.
Together with Chancellor Merkel, the 44th US president learned about HARTING products and solutions, which are accompanying companies around the globe into Industrie 4.0 including the MICA (Modular Industry Computing Architecture).
This is a mini industrial computer that is positioned as a neural interface between machine and Cloud, and enables systems and machines to function as part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
President Obama and Chancellor Merkel took great interest in the presentation of the Rinspeed "Etos" car, in which the MICA captures drive and emissions data and transmits it to testing institutes for independent monitoring.
