KUKA podcast: A robotic future, episode 102 December 2016 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
Over the course of three podcasts Kuka’s Corporate Innovation manager, Dominik Boesl discusses the precedents, current trends and future innovations that have and will continue to shape the future of robotics.
Dominik explains why today we are seen as a generation of “robotic-immigrants” but how our grandchildren will grow up as the first generation of “robotic-natives”. He describes how robotics and automation will permeate through automotive manufacturing, and all our lives, across the next 25 years.
