New human-robot cooperation in Audi’s production processes
- Fenceless robot supports employees in production processes
- Innovative technology, certified by employers’ liability insurance association
- Audi Board of Management Member for Production Dr. Hubert Waltl: “Direct cooperation between man and machine is a key element of the factory of the future.”
Direct cooperation between man and machine: At its main plant in Ingolstadt, Audi has for the first time deployed a robot that works “hand-in-hand” with humans – without a safety barrier and ideally adapted to the employees’ working cycles. It is the first human-robot cooperation at the Volkswagen Group to be applied in final assembly. This innovative technology makes work easier for the assembly employees and makes ergonomic improvements.
