ŠKODA AUTO has taken yet another step
forward in implementing Industry 4.0 principles
into manufacturing at its Vrchlabí component
plant: new parts for the CNC processing
lines are ordered automatically. They are
then transported to the CNC machines by
robots guided by Internet of Things (IoT) sensor
technology. By combining the automated
ordering and supply of components, ŠKODA
AUTO is consistently pressing ahead with
the digitalisation of production in Vrchlabí.
Electric cars are at least as safe as combustion-engine cars.
They are fitted with state-of-the-art assistance systems, and
these can have an even wider range of functions because
electric cars don’t have clutches and manual transmissions.
In impact tests done by EuroNCAP modern electric cars
receive the best possible ratings, just like combustionengine cars. Electric cars automatically disconnect their
battery in a crash, and tests by German automobile
organisation ADAC showed that the risk of fire is definitely
not higher than in non-electric vehicles. Although batteries
burn differently than a tank of petrol or diesel, the rescue
services already have procedures for these cases.
TIDYING YOUR CAR’S INTERIOR
Detailed cleaning of a car’s interior is finicky work. If parts of the interior
have to be dismantled and taken out, that’s the first step. Then all the
compartments, boxes and pouches are opened and all the customer’s
items are removed and set aside. Then a combination of detergent and
steam cleaning is applied to the door sills. Depending on how dirty the
interior is, APC universal cleaner is sprayed onto the grime and dirt, with
compressed air used to flush out grit from hard-to-reach spots.
