The PANDA Experiment will be located at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) currently under construction at Darmstadt and will be the main experiment at FAIR addressing the field of hadron physics. The Detector groups are in the phase of finishing the technical designs of the individual systems and are about to commence the detector construction. The ambitious physics goals of PANDA lead to challenges in the detector design in terms of reduced mass, high resolution and high rate capability as well as physics selectivity. In the presentation selected highlights will show how these challenges are met by low mass tracking systems, charged particle identification detectors, calorimetry and data acquisition.
