Audi’s Robot Factory Managers Supervises A Team Of Human Mechanics
The German car manufacturer is hoping to improve its after-sales service with remotely-controlled bots.
It’s no secret that automotive manufacturing plants are highly automated, with robotic machines operating with precision and speed in the car assembly line. Naturally these car factories also have a human workforce — the staff who perform tasks that can’t be left to machines, as well as supervisors who oversee the process. Automobile dealerships, on the other hand, rely heavily on manpower — mechanics, engineers, administrative staff, among others – but very soon one car brand’s dealerships may include robot supervisors among their “staff.”
