+ - Robot Overlord Watch: Robots Join the Final Assembly Line at U.S. Auto Plant-> 1

Submitted by moon_unit2
moon_unit2 (2573409) writes "MIT Technology Review has a story about BMW's new collaborative final-assembly-line robots. The move could prove a significant in the ongoing automation of work, as robots have previously been incapable of doing such jobs, and too dangerous to work in close proximity to humans. Robots like the ones at BMW’s South Carolina plant are also to cooperate with human workers, by handing them a wrench when they need it. So perhaps the next big shift in labor could be robot-human collaboration."
