  • Porsche takes the largest collaborative robot in use from Comau.

    Car-making robots are powerful and dangerous machines, so there are always safety barriers separating them from factory workers.

    Now Porsche is pioneering a new generation of robot, one that can work side-by-side with humans. It’s a car industry first, according to executive Jens Thomer.

    “People and robots will co-operate,” says the director of vehicle project and factory structure planning, to build car bodies in Porsche’s main factory at Zuffenhausen, near Stuttgart

    The new robot’s metal muscles wear a sensitive skin. Using capacitive sensing, the skin can feel when a human is nearby or makes contact. The robot slows when it senses it’s close to a worker and stops if they touch.


  • Capacitive sensing is the technology used on smartphone, tablet and some high-end car infotainment system screens.

    While the robot handles heavy lifting, its human workmate can simultaneously take on tasks that demand dexterity, flexibility and intelligence. The first job for the sensitive-skin robot will be helping assemble the rear floor section of the body of Porsche’s new 911 sports car.

    “Just one station, for now,” says Thomer, but the technology is especially attractive to Porsche and is sure to become more widely used.

    Zuffenhausen, which is preparing to produce Porsche’s new battery-powered super-sedan, the Taycan, alongside the 911, Cayman and Boxster sports cars, is a crowded place. It’s in the middle of town, with limited room to expand.
