Welcome to Industry 5.0! The human touch revolution

11 January 2018

Industry 4.0 offers mass customisation – however, today consumers want more. They are looking for mass personalisation, which can only be had when the human touch returns to manufacturing. This is what Esben H. Østergaard, CTO & Co-Founder, Universal Robots is calling Industry 5.0.

By putting humans back at the centre of industrial production – aided by tools such as cobots – Industry 5.0 not only gives consumers the products they want today, but gives workers jobs that are more meaningful. Industry 5.0 products empower people to realise the basic human urge to express themselves – even if they have to pay a premium price to do so. Products like these can only be made through human involvement and human engagement.

Esben H. Østergaard, CTO & Co-Founder, Universal Robots has written a new Thought Paper on Industry 5.0.
