A very peculiar case has occurred in Germany where a man has been killed by a Robot. The 22 year old man who died on Monday at the plant in Bauntal some 100 Kms from Frankfurt was a contractor in Volkswagen’s production plant who was setting up the stationary robot when it suddenly grabbed him and crushed him against a heavy metal plate.
According to the reports, human error has been given the blame instead of the problem with the Robot that can be programmed to perform several tasks. Another contractor was present when the incident happened but he was unharmed.
