For a long time, they were just the stuff of science fiction movies. But as time goes by, robots are entering our daily lives: They're found in factories, in hospitals, in storehouses and even in agriculture.
The European Union has supported the development of robots to the tune of several hundred million euros. The industry is expected to grow radically in the coming years.
Besides computer technology, BSH workers also had to get used to robot colleagues as well. A lot of final production steps are done manually. A fridge door can weigh 12 kilos. Boosting output is only possible when robots and workers are integrated side-by-side on the production line.
