Inthe past, protective grids separated robot arms and laborers. In the future,workers and robots will work increasingly hand-in-hand. This is performedpossibly by modern security sensors robots take on specifically monotonous andarduous tasks. Today robots already play a crucial part in contributing toindustrial workplaces at the Audi plant which is the pioneer for thistechnology by driving innovation on the shop floor with KLARA robot. KLARAabbreviated from the German as “Adhesive application with robotassistance” has employed at Audi’s Ingolstadt plant which is the first time,Audi has applied an Human-robot collaboration light robot in its major plantfor applying adhesive in final assembly. KLARA is mainly working in theproduction of Audi A4 and A5 models with some particular characteristics asinvolving a robotic arm; its sensors to identify if any humancontacts the engine and automatically terminates the process for safety reasonsand further implies any threat with the illuminated ring: it lights up redif there is any interruption.  At the moment, Audi is using KLARA ininstalling the optional carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) roof on the newAudi RS 5 Coupe (fuel consumption combined in l/100 km: 8.7;CO2 emissions combined in g/km: 197.[1])
