(Case Study) Integrating Exoskeletons into Manufacturing

September 19, 2019

Toyota Motor North America has successfully integrated exoskeletons into manufacturing operations. How did Toyota become the first major company to require exoskeletons as personal protective equipment?

Marisol Barrero, Safety Manager at Toyota Motor North America, and responsible for the regional integration, will walk you through the 2-year history of the effort. The presentation will focus on the new systems that had to be laid in place, as well as the existing systems that had to be heavily relied upon to assist the initiative. Lessons learned will be applicable to the integration of other types of wearable devices across other organizations.
