This just amazes me. Cant even comprehend the man hours spent designing and programming these robots.

I can't imagine the cost either! Pretty incredible CPU programming, I tried to see what kind of controllers they were using but I couldn't see anything with a label on it. Most of the auto plants in my area are all Allen Bradley PLC's but my guess the Mercedes plants all use Siemens.

Absolutely awesome! Thanks for sharing. I have to wonder what goes through the mind of people that support the UAW and such. I'll bet their head hurts when they see these videos.

Are the robots more efficient than human workers?
