Automation in the automobile industry

Be it incorporating smart solutions or making use of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), the modern shop floor in the automobile industry is dominated by automation. Car manufacturers such as Tesla, Volkswagen, BMW, Toyota and many other leading auto players are already making use of a range of automation technologies. Some of the noteworthy automation solutions used in the automobile space include collaborative robots (cobots) and cognitive computing in IoT connected cars.

Collaborative robots

Cobots are user-friendly robots which are light in weight and easily portable. These robots work on the principle of machine learning and are capable of working independently without human interference. Collaborative robots assist in manufacturing superior quality products with utmost precision. Universal Robots, Kuka, Rethink Robotics are some of the major companies that develop cobots for the global manufacturing industry.

Cognitive computing in IoT connected cars

Cognitive computing are AI-based platforms that make use of machine learning, human-computer interaction, human language processing, and many more related concepts. The German car manufacturer BMW is exploring the idea of creating autonomous vehicles by using cognitive computing and IoT. These cars are expected to communicate with each other while recognising driving patterns of their human drivers in an emotional situation. If successfully tested, these autonomous cars would be an advanced version of driverless cars.
