We present the first developed prototype of the co-worker robot “PaDY” (i.e., in-time Parts/tools Delivery to You) for automotive assembly processes and demonstrate its ef-fectiveness in assembling vehicles. PaDY delivers the necessary part(s) and tool(s) for each task, to a worker during the assembly process, increasing efficiency, by reducing unneces-sary movements by the worker; this also reduces the load of the worker and mistakes. Here we introduce the concept underlying PaDY and illustrate how PaDY can be applied to an actual assembly process based on our previous articles[3]-[6].
