Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director of ABB India and South Asia, said the company's integrated automation package with digital connectivity riding on Ola's AI platform will be instrumental in the roll-out of world-class scooters for India and the rest of the world.

"Increased automation and robotics to make shop-floors safer, more productive and of impeccable quality will fast-track India's transition to one of the leading agile, self-reliant and high-tech manufacturing economies of the world," he said in a statement.

Ola is building its mega-factory on Industry 4.0 principles and to be powered by its own proprietary AI engine and tech stack that will be deeply integrated into all its systems, continuously self-learning and optimising every aspect of the manufacturing process.

This will provide unprecedented control, automation and quality to the entire operations, especially with Ola's implementation of cyber-physical and advanced Internet of Everything (IoE) systems.

With an initial annual capacity of 20 lakh units, Ola's mega-factory will create 10,000 jobs and serve as the company's global manufacturing hub for both India and international markets across Europe, United Kingdom, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand.

The mega-factory is also expected to be the country's most automated with about 5,000 robots and automated guided vehicles in use once the factory is fully operational to its full capacity.
