IFA 2017: Electrical associations focus on Smart Living

Joint press release of VDE, ZVEH und ZVEI

Which possibilities does a smart home offer? And how do you manage to improve comfort and security while saving energy? The joint appearance of the associations VDE, ZVEH and ZVEI at the IFA 2017 from September 1 to 6 in Berlin (IFA NEXT, hall 26 A, booth 224/225) provides answers to these questions. Under the motto "Fit for the digital world", the booth will focus on the subjects of smart living and young people for the electrical industry.

Press Officer

The 100 square meter "House of Smart Living" demonstrates the advantages of intelligently networked smart home technology. Innovative solutions from more than 50 manufacturers can be controlled via Tablet, Smartphone, Smartwatch or with voice commands. How different technical systems work together is explained by a smart home demonstrator, which simulates various scenarios in a networked building. With virtual reality glasses, visitors have the opportunity to experience a smart home in the virtual world.

Visit of the Business Initiative Smart Living 

The business initiative "Smart Living" will be a guest at the joint booth of VDE, ZVEH and ZVEI at the IFA. It has set itself the goal of developing Germany as a leading market for smart home applications and is managed by the Smart Living business unit on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. 

The topic of the promotion of young talents is reflected above all by the interactive stations of the associations' show. The fascination of the electrical and information technology can be experienced by young people - for example when assembling a digital wristwatch with data goggles and 3D printers or when playing table soccer against a robot. At the chocolate lentils filling line, dual system students explain how Industry 4.0 works in practice and what opportunities are offered by a technical raining.

Special events on the weekend

On the trade fair weekend (2nd and 3rd September), presentations of "SolarMobil Deutschland" and "Invent a Chip" will supplement the booth of the electrical associations. Students will have their self-constructed solar model cars swept over a three meter long circuit and show how solar energy can be used with the help of chips.
