Wolfsburg Autostadt and Factory Tour

The RoboLive® team is split between Germany and America, so we always make the most of a chance to meet in-person. After concluding our presence at IZB, we took a team visit to Autostadt, the automobile themed park and exhibition center in town. Built in 2000, the Autostadt is a symbolic representation of the automotive industry that powers Wolfsburg: The park is located right near the Volkswagen manufacturing plant in town, which is the largest automobile factory in the world.

The Autostadt is a big attraction for locals and tourists alike—across its museums, lawns, and pavilions, the park receives more than 2 million visitors each year, making it one of the most popular themed parks in Germany. The sprawling campus features content from brands like Audi and Porsche, whose information pavilion with real display vehicles was one of our team’s favorites. We also took an insightful tour of the ZeitHaus, an onsite museum dedicated to the history of the automobile.

Our visit to Wolfsburg concluded with a tour of the nearby Volkswagen plant. As expected of the world’s largest car factory, the plant produces almost a million cars each year. That means a lot of robots at work—many more than here at the Chattanooga plant, where RoboLive® is currently deployed. While all our team members are familiar with the inner workings of a car factory, experiencing a plant the size of VW Wolfsburg was a unique opportunity. All told, the factory is bigger than the entire country of Monaco.

After closing out our trip with a pizza dinner, we’re back in the office and ready to keep improving RoboLive®. It’s the end of a busy season that saw our teams travel from Smyrna to Detroit, to Germany and back again. We’re thankful for all the feedback we’ve gotten along the way, and already looking forward to the next opportunity. Want to be the next to see RoboLive® in action?
