Sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology enables the robot to navigate its environment: using sensors and laser scanners, it recognises vehicles and stationary obstacles as well as people crossing its path. The control system calculates the approach speed and detects if a collision is imminent. In this case, the robot stops by itself or takes evasive action.

› A fully autonomous transport system carries parts between the mechanical measuring centre and processing machines
› A guided tour is all the robot needs to grasp its route and environment
› Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 are cornerstones of ŠKODA AUTO’s 2025 Strategy

Mladá Boleslav, 28 June 2018 – As a key cornerstone of its 2025 Strategy, ŠKODA AUTO is rigorously advancing the digitalisation of its production process. As of now, the Czech car manufacturer is using a fully autonomous, self-learning transport robot at the Vrchlabí component plant. This robot is able to recognise obstacles along its journey through the plant and to incorporate other information from its surroundings when planning its route. If necessary, it changes its course to always get to its destination as quickly as possible. It thereby contributes to further improving safety at work and the efficiency of transport processes at the plant.
