BMW i8 is assembled by robots (video)
BMW has made the process of car assembling automated. At Spartanburg factory (South Carolina), robots work on car assembling along with people.
There exists an opinion that the appearance of robots will lead to unemployment so that people will no longer be needed in industry. However, BMW factory dispels stereotypes. According to the company directory, robots will come in handy at difficult tasks. For instance, Universal Robots put adhesive sealant along a door for noise and water isolation. This work cause hands fatigue.
The company plans to use much more advanced robots. They will follow people and bring a wrench, a screwdriver, and other tools.
