Audi plant uses robots to move cars
In a pilot phase at the Audi plant in Ingolstadt that started in February, two robots independently transport cars from production to an interim storage area. From there, these driverless transport systems with the name “Ray” later place the sorted Audi models into position according to their shipping destinations, so that logistics employees can load them onto railway wagons.

Audi is testing systems for the intelligent factory of the future: In a pilot phase at the Audi plant in Ingolstadt that started in February, two robots independently transport cars from production to an interim storage area. From there, they later place the sorted Audi models into position according to their shipping destinations, so that logistics employees can load them onto railway wagons. Audi is now preparing the first industrial application. The company is also examining additional areas of application for such robots.
