With Volvo’s decision to go all electric in its future vehicles, combined with the French government’s decision to ban sales of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040 and similar moves in Germany, the automotive industry is preparing for a tectonic shift in the manufacturing landscape.
The way electric cars are made already differ considerably now, and new techniques will take the production of the new vehicles further away from traditional methods.
The world’s largest industrial robot manufacturer could build a facility in space.
In a wide-ranging interview with RoboticsAndAutomationNews.com, recorded at Hannover Messe, Neil Dueweke – who was competing to be heard over a loud musical band in the background – says the company has big ambitions.
“Anywhere there’s robotics involved, Fanuc will be there,” says Dueweke. “Space robotics? Why not?”
As far-fetched as it might sound, there are many projects involving robots in space – that’s in addition to the robotic rovers which are already widely known.
