With Japan aging, Toyota to staff factories with robots
Interesting. It seems like Toyota is being forced into using the technology, based on demographic trends (retiring workforce, fewer workers). I didn't think it was Toyota's philosophy to choose automation over thinking human workers, unless the job was unsafe (welding, paint, etc.). I guess they're using automation out of necessity as well as to protect the remaining jobs there in Japan?
