The process has led the firm to increase its productivity as well as efficiency of its output. Also, Maruti Suzuki, one of the leading automobile players in the Indian market has allotted one robot for every four factory workers at its Manesar and Gurgaon car plants. These examples showcase the growth of smart automation.
