Opel Insignia is Regal Sportback. Opel Insignia tourer is the Buick Tour X...same car.
Maybe "androids" was a bad choice of words!!, perhaps Robots? or aliens assembling the cars? LOL

A robot is simply a machine like r2d2 from star wars. ... An android is a robot that looks kind of human. Maybe the humans are hidden underneath those wraps (sheets) that are painting the cars. If you do not appreciate the posting of the video. .just say it!. If you want to criticize my choice of words. .that's OK too.

The sealant squirting 'bots (at about 18 min. in) are almost hypnotic. But I'm a pushover for films like this--reminds me of those movies we used to watch in industrial art class in high school.

Thanks for posting, I enjoyed watching the process. It's amazing the thought, resources and energy put into design and implementation down to even the smallest parts. It's a tremendous scale and process when you break it all down.

My father worked 'on the line' and was there when 'robots' were starting to be introduced.

I toured the GM Linden NJ assembly plant in the mid 1960's when I was a kid. The noise was deafening. The silence in this plant is eerie. We bought a factory delivery Volvo S80 in 1999 and they give you a tour of the assembly line. It was just as quiet the only difference was Volvo had potted plants all over the factory.
