What is the Aronui Industry 4.0 Navigator at Callaghan Innovation?

The Aronui Industry 4.0 Navigator is a free interactive learning space at Callaghan Innovation’s Textile Centre, in Parnell, Auckland. The navigator is a guided experience, designed to demystify Industry 4.0, and inspire business leaders to:

  • think beyond optimising productivity and manufacturing.

  • use I4.0 as a business-wide framework.

  • build a roadmap for change.

It does this by:
  • explaining the guiding principles of Industry 4.0.

  • demonstrating the case for change and sharing how other businesses are using enabling technologies.

  • exploring with you how a tailored, actionable I4.0 strategy can grow your business.

How does it work?

The story of Aronui

Tāne Mahuta ascended through the 12 heavens to retrieve 3 baskets of knowledge for mankind. These baskets were embedded in the earth from which came human life.

Tāne navigated eleven other heavens before ascending to the twelfth where he received Te kete-aronui – the basket of humanities.

This basket contained the knowledge to forge a journey of discovery, to help mankind reach their full potential for earth and all living things.

Aronui is a space for innovators to set sail before the wind, to explore potential, build knowledge and lead a more sustainable future for Aotearoa and the generations that will follow.
