Auto Industry Robotics: Living in the Future

Not too long ago,我们探讨了一些使用机器人的方法across the automotive industry. Machines handle tasks like painting and welding not only for quality purposes, but also for the safety of employees. And while many people fear that more capable robots means higher unemployment for a human workforce, the past few decades have shown us that there is still plenty of work to go around. So, let’s continue the conversation with some of the more “nontraditional” uses of auto industry robotics.


Think that robotics and cars only cross paths when it comes to manufacturing? Think again, bub. Dealership service and parts operations are set to revolutionize, with everything from oil changes totire mountingsand rotations eventually being handled by machines. High startup costs are holding back the initial leap, but with an estimated 30-50% of all dealership activities being within mechanical capability, the gradual changing of the guard seems inevitable, if not quite immediate.


There is a simple joy to plunking a few quarters into a vending machine, pressing a couple buttons, and watching your candy bar fall to the ground. Well, guess what? A dealership in Georgia is now bringing that very same sensation to thepurchase of a new ride。(Minus the falling part, of course.)

伟德公司Carvana.那the online auto sales behemoth, has recently paired with a car-pickup dealership in Atlanta, to completely change the vehicle-buying experience through the use of savvy technology. “The experience itself is exactly a vending machine experience,” says Carvana CEO Ernie Garcia.










Is America ready?

像Waymo这样的公司似乎这么认为。“这将会走遍世界,”Waymo Ceo John Krafcik说,“这将从这里开始。”

About 100 people in the US die in automobiles every day. The minds behind autonomous cars want to virtually eliminate that figure. And while they’re at it, take a bite out of other pesky problems too. Parking hassles, city gridlock, pollution, and overuse of fossil fuels are有针对性的改善领域这可能是自驾车的统治。伟德公司随着凤凰城,匹兹堡,旧金山和多伦多等城市的审判已经深入下降,旅行的未来并不是在途中。未来是现在
