The Key for Centralized Fleet Management, Orchestration, Integration and Automation

Leverage the Benefits of VDA5050

  • Easily integrate new vehicles and robots into an existing control center instead of tedious integration. Adding robot to a fleet becomes a matter of configuration.
  • Moving from complex environments to seamless interconnectivity
  • Turning operational risk into industrial-grade reliability

Automotive production at the BMW Group is a lot like top-flight sport in that it’s about high-performance process. The real-time locating platform KINEXON OS forms the backbone for fully digitalizing our production. It’s an innovative operating system that makes our highly complex manufacturing processes transparent and raises efficiency in production even further.
