Connecting the Bots

The WRAL Documentary, "Connecting the Bots," examines how automation is changing the workplace. It goes inside a textile mill near Hickory where robots sew socks that are manufactured without ever being touched by a human hand. It tours a giant greenhouse where automated systems include robots that space plants as they grow. It visits a company in Sanford that makes robots that make other products and a company in Matthews that automates woodworking assembly lines eliminating the need for human labor.
