New collaborative robots, also known as co-bots, are first being used to help workers fit shock absorbers to Fiesta cars, a task that requires pinpoint accuracy, strength, and a high level of dexterity. Employees work hand-in-hand with the robots to ensure a perfect fit every time.

Multi- award-winning hip-hop DJ, DJ Yoda, is teaming up with Ford’s co-bot to celebrate 40 years of Fiesta by mashing-up music from the last four decades.

This latest partnership with Ford’s co-bot is a first for DJ Yoda, who is famed for his fresh approach and unique ways to bring turntables out of the clubs with bespoke collaborations. Ford’s turntablist co-bot is part of the same family of machines that alongside humans at Ford’s assembly plant in Cologne Germany, where they install shock absorbers onto Fiesta subcompact vehicles.
