For this revolution, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier presented Franka Emika the German Future Prize in 2017.

At 1E9 he will talk about the mission of Franka Emika: building the ideal robot of the future, which should be a tool that can be used by anybody and which supports humans in carrying out unpleasant or even dangerous tasks.
